The Mriya at the Prestwick airport

The Mriya was today at the Prestwick airport (Glasgow city). The transport company Ocean Sky made it come for carrying an extraordinary load.

Ocean Sky Director Eddie Allison said: « The 225 is remarkable. Only a few airports can handle this behemoth and Glasgow Prestwick is one. Ocean Sky is extremely proud to have been awarded the handling contract for this unique aircraft as well as its smaller brother, the AN124.

« Regular types of freight on the 225 include power station turbines and, most recently, heavy equipment sent to Alabama where a cement factory had shut down and urgently needed this equipment to re-commence production. It is also used in humanitarian situations where the Antonov’s massive lift capability can make a real difference. »
