  • Again wrong information. Blue and yellow flag is from Ukrain and not Russia. Ukrain is the producer of Antonov and they are the largest cargo planes of the world

  • Dear Jojo,

    I studied at the Biggest Ukrainian University, The Aviation University of Kiev, from 1987 to 1994, and I was soe many times at Antonov Factory, and for this reason, let me explain you the follow:

    1. The Antonov is an Ukrainian Trade Mark, founded in May 31, 1936, in Kiev (capital of Ukraine), by Antonov Bureau, in name of The Big Constructor Oleg Antonov;

    2. The AN-225 (MRIA), was manufactured in Dec 21, 1988, from an AN-124 prototype (RUSLAN) Manufactures in De 26, 1982.

    This is the true information which, you need to know.

    Regards.
