World's biggest plane lands in Dubai

Time Out Dubai has video and news on the Antonov An-225 Mriya, after the world's biggest plane lands in Dubai at Al Maktoum International Airport on Tuesday.

Dubai aircraft enthusiasts can now take pride in the fact that their city has hosted the largest plane on the planet, as well as feasting their eyes on photos and video of this beast of the skies.

Ukrainian-manufactured Antonov An-225 Mriya weighs a whopping 175 tonnes without cargo or fuel and has been carrying a 117-tonne generator on its recent travels around the Middle East, Asia and Australia.

The mind-blowing aircraft, used for delivering very heavy cargo, is powered by six engines, measures 84-metres in length and has 32 wheels.

Dubai resident Alexander Hanegah shot this excellent photo of the Antonov An-225 Mriya moments after it took off from Al Maktoum International and sent it in to Time Out Dubai.

Here are some amazing pictures of the world's longest and heaviest airplane touching down in Perth on Monday.
