when I flew into Denver Saturday I noticed and ANTONOV-225 at a Parking Ramp and it does not appear to be in current use. it seems as though it is a display or something, so if it is on display then someone please tell me why.

It was an AN-124, the Russian C-5

i noticed that in Denver too when we were coming back from Kansas City on Monday Night on Frontier. I was sitting in the A-seat (left window) and it came up on the left side! It was cool with the Antonov house colors on it! I've never seen one before then!! 😀

I've seen the AN-124 at KPHL and at KRIC on several occasions. US companies that need to transport very large pieces of cargo contract for the services of the AN-124 from Russia. Not sure what companies but I would think that oil companies would be one example. Large manufacturing companies such as automotive plants may be another. 🙂

i mean they might of just stopped there on the way to another airport, like to refuel or to change crew or something.
