Using my own life's experiences as the canvas for my work.

Heavy Lifter

There was a Russian heavy lift aircraft over at Alliance airport in Fort Worth. (AFW)  My office is on the Aliance Airport property and I was lucky that I had my camera with me when I saw this beast on my way into the office.

It had just rained leaving the apron wet and the morning sky kind of interesting with some dark clouds left over.

This model of the Antonov AN-124 was actually an AH-124 which means that it was built in the Ukraine, according to wikipedia.

I thought that it was a pretty nice surprise.  We don’t see this aircraft in the US very often.
