Guess what we just saw...

...the biggest plane in the world!  The Antonov 225, built in the Ukraine to be used in the Russian space program to carry their space shuttle, is here in Fairbanks for the day.  It is on a stopover before it heads to Haiti to bring relief supplies to the people there.  We were able to drive by it tonight to let the boys see it.  Pretty impressive!  It was so big around that I am surprise that the thing can even get up in the air!  We are praying that its cargo will be able to bless the Haitian people.

Very Cool, Debbie. My airplane lover would have loved that too.

How neat! I'd love to see a house or person beside it to see how big it really is!
