Antonov An-224 Mriya

Pro Member Trainee

I just downloaded the Antonov An-224 Mriya, the world's biggest airliner from Russia for those who are unfamiliar with the aircraft. I was wondering other than Edwards Airforce Base, what other airports are suitable for this plane, and what airports does it usually travel from? I know most of them would be in Russia and the rest of Europe.

Last time I looked there was only one still in service, somewhere in Europe.
BTW, it's actually an AN-225 and was buit as a strategic airlift transport aircraft and never as an airliner.

You can take off from practically any RWY a 737 for example can TO. You might have to adjust your Fuel and Payload prior to loading the flight though.

From memory, the AN-225 has even limited STOL capabilities -- but don't quote me on that. 😀

This certainly doesn't apply to the AN-225 in FS. You wouldn't know this of course because you don't even have FSX and you've never bothered downloading and flying the FS AN-225 which, by the way is also available for fs9.
As usual your 'knowledge' is second hand. Bow Down Bow Down

The problem with many of the free aircraft is that the flight model is trash. Many don't come with a panel and you have to use a default panel, a F-4 with a Learjet panel makes no sense to me, just fly the Learjet. Many have the flight model aliased to the default aircraft also. If the FS aircraft won't perform somewhat like the real aircraft with the appropriate panel, I don't want it.

It's no secret that I don't have FSX(I often tell everyone), it won't run on my computer. Maybe I should put it in my signature. Why is what programs I have or don't have any concern of anyone else is beyond me. I think it's stupid to pay over $70(maybe more in Singapore or France, I've lost track) for FSX just to poke around when you know that your computer can't handle the program. How do you know I don't have a An-225? A more important question would be why do you care?

My information above was for the real aircraft. It was from an encyclopedia so I guess it is second hand information. Since we don't have any An-225 pilots on the forum, that will have to do.

It's just a jealous attempt at making me look bad. Please!...why do you care?

Your reliance on real life aircraft and real life pilots is irrelevant as we are concerned with a computergame called Microsoft Flight Simulator here.

Now hopefully that clears up a few issues for you. If that rocks your boat, I suggest you hang out with the 'elite brotherhood' where referring to MSFS as a game will provoke the death sentence.

I resent the fact that you're using the plural. Serenity is my usual state of mind. You have not seen me agitated yet.

BTW, "Calm down guys" is one of those patronizing, frequently used comments that serve no other purpose than exposing that the poster hasn't read the whole thread and therefore hasn't got a clue what it's all about -- or simply wants to add another post to his count.

If you're so concerned about CRJ's standing , reputation and well-being, I suggest you join him in the Chatroom where ego-polishing, group huggings and other niceties take priority. I'm sure you'll be more than welcome there and as an added bonus you won't have to put up with the likes of me. 😀

Euh..okay all I was asking was if anyone knew good runways where to take off with the Antonov...dont need to know everybody's opinion on what's real and what's not. Thanks anyways but I think this is going a little too far off subject. Off Topic!

I've already answered your question to the best of my knowledge AND experience as I've been flying and experimenting with the AN-225 ever since FS2002.

If you're averse to departures of the original topic, fear not as it only happens occassionally, namely when the 'Three Musketeers' who seem to be joined by their hips get so bored in their Chatroom-Bonding-Club that their only reprieve is an escape to the good old Flyaway forums.

Yup thanks guys, Edwards it is, actually tried it but was never able to lift off runway 35 which is pretty darn long, will check my payload and that next time. Oh and thanks for all the info and all. The chatter was pretty funny actually but was hoping for runways instead, but got the best answers I could so no worries hahaha. Was just hoping for more stuff 😛 👍 Punk

The Myra AN 225 was designed to carry the shuttle and therefore did not need STOL/unpaved capability.

Another thing you could try on shorter runways is to reduce the air temperature in the weather settings. You could also play with the dewpoint and other factors to get the air more dense, which translates into better lift. Snow at Edwards' would be strange, but with global warming oddities, not totally impossible. 😳

Hahahahaha, yeah it would be weird but good point actually about the air properties, didn't think too much about that and I'm doing an Aerodynamics course this semester at university. Strange thing about the weather though, we're still getting damn snow in April!!! Bahhhhh!! What the heck?! hahaha Wall Bashing
