    the gumball people moved our cars around the globe using antonovs the year I did it

    A bunch of gas powered italian, german, japanese, and american things with four wheels. On order is a bunch of the same, and previously I had a bunch of the same. Oh and I fly, tool around on boats, and have been known to ride motorcycles.

    they are actually quite old, created as a military cargo plane for carting tanks and choppers. And yes, they are Absolutely Massive! they weight in just under 300 tons.

    Yeah the AN-225 is an old dog. Besides the sheer size and capacity, that landing gear is completely insane!

    Yeah the gear is pretty impressive. The US C5A has a similar arrangement, but is a smaller "heavy lifter" and has fewer wheel sets. The Antanov 124 (smaller 4 engine brother to the 225) is also layed out very similar.
