Biggest things in the World
What you see in the image above is the AN 225 Mriya, a Ukrainian airliner, giving a piggyback ride to a Russian space shuttle. Yes, the world s largest aircraft is capable not only of delivering hundreds of tons of cargo and complete, arena sized concert stages, it s the aircraft you will need if you re transporting other aircraft a Boeing 737 can fit inside its cargo hold.Built in 1988, it was easily (by 50 percent) the largest plane in the world at the time and remains so today (yes, there is only one of these). Inactive for about seven years after the collapse of the Soviet Union, the massive aircraft was restored and put back into service in 2001, and it gets plenty of use, since it can transport cargo that literally no other plane on Earth can.
