This type of aircraft is not coming to Zagreb for the first time, moreover, his bigger brother, Antonov's An-225, the largest transport aircraft in the world, was in Zagreb too. We had the opportunity to see it last year in August, when delivered a diesel engine from the Smolensk nuclear power plant to Zagreb for overhaul. The plane spent a little more time in Zagreb because its landing gear broke during the preparation for return flight.

The An-124 (registration number UR-82029) will take off from the Chinese city of Shenzhen towards Zagreb, with a technical stop in Mazar-l-Sharif (Afghanistan) and Tbilisi (Georgia). The plane is expected in Zagreb at 12 o'clock.

Departure from Zagreb is planned for 2 pm, when the plane should take off for Leipzig.

Watch the video of our partner Fire2HR who recorded the last arrival of this type of aircraft in Zagreb.
