Ukraine, 5 hryvnia 2005. AN-124.
Ukraine, 2 hryvnia 2006. Oleg Antonov, the 100th anniversary of the birth.

The Antonov An-124 Ruslan (NATO reporting name: Condor). It was designed by the Antonov design bureau in the Ukrainian SSR. The first flight 24.12.1982. Heavy long-range military transport aircraft - the largest military transport aircraft in the world.

The design of the front and rear cargo ramp is my modest development.
In 1998, the An-124 as part of the technical crew, I flew along the route: Ukraine - Ireland - Canada - USA - Argentina - Mexico - Switzerland - Ukraine.

Impressive story. Was it a smooth ride? Never got to see the An-124 live, but I did see an empty Globemaster III in Frankfurt once. Cavernous!

There is a Concorde parked on Orly airport, near my home. An elegant bird, but cramped inside.

The flight was superb. The crew of the aircraft was test pilots. Landings were top class.
Peter, you can see a demonstration flight of AN-124 here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kp9lefikSYU

Yes, Concord elegant bird. I saw Concord on the museum parking Airbus SAS (Toulouse).
Scheme aircraft and construction and design of the cockpit is close to the ideal.
