AN-124 (Antonov 124)

The Antonov An-124 Ruslan (Ukrainian: Антонов Ан-124 «Руслан») (NATO reporting name: Condor) is a strategic airlift jet aircraft. It was designed by the Antonov design bureau in the Ukrainian SSR, then part of the Soviet Union. The An-124 is the world's largest serially manufactured cargo airplane and world's second largest operating cargo aircraft, behind the one-off Antonov An-225 (an enlarged variant of the An-124) . During development it was known as Izdeliye 400 in house, and An-40 in the West. First flown in 1982, civil certification was issued on 30 December 1992.[3] Over 40 are in service (26 civilian models with airlines and 10 firm orders as of August 2006) and 20 were in commercial use in 1998[4] in Ukraine, Russia, the United Arab Emirates and Libya.
