Been a few years since I last saw a VD AN-124 at Stansted, but one was there last night. Anyone know if it was a one off or if it will become a regular again?

One at East Mids today, they use them for delivering engines normally from RR here

Yep I think East Mids have them fairly regularly still don't they?!. Stansted used to as well but not for many years that I know off. Shame it was in the dark.

Yes often picking up RR engines from Derby amongst other outsized loads. We are the main freight airport and I think the only 24 hour one.

Lucky you Mr T. I think East Mids will be my only chance to see the mighty AN-225 - if ever!
