AN-124-100 Volga-Dnepr Airlines RA-82047 (built 1994) standing at Airport Houston . Only visible in GM. Funny, the view 3D in GM with holes.
Also Houston (historic layer GE) RA-82079 (built 2000). The RA-82077 (built in 1995) in Charlotte, the stripes probably picture failure.
RA-82044 (built 1991) and RA-82079 (see above, only visible in GM) loading on the Cargoport Leipzig. An AN-124 Antonov-Airlines same place.
In maintenance at AMTES Aircraft Maintenance and Engineering Service GmbH Leipzig: RA-82042 (built 1991, meanwhile withdrawn from use ?) RA-82045 (built 1991) RA-82078 (built 1996) RA-82074 (built 1994)
From the RA-82074 exist a video while birds came into engine.
Libyan Arab Air Cargo is a Libyan cargo airline based in Tripoli and based at Tripoli International Airport.
It is the only company outside of the former Soviet Union / Ukraine that used an Antonov An-124. (Apart from Maximus Air Cargo UAE, which operates an An-124 with a Ukrainian registration)
In 2001 Libya bought two An-124s (built in 1992 and 1994 respectively) and operated them until 2011 when, after the civil war, no funds were available for restarting Libyan Arab air freight.
One aircraft, the 5A-DKL 'Susa', was flown to Unkraine for repairs (where it was subsequently confiscated because Libya did not pay the repair costs). The second aircraft, the 5A-DKN 'Sabrata', remained at Tripoli airport.
During the fighting in the second Libyan civil war, the 5A-DKN was badly damaged by shelling in June 2019. A few days later, the total destruction occurred in further battles.
Negotiations are currently underway between Libya and Ukraine on the return of the 5A-DKL, which is located at the Antonov airfield Svyatoschyn near Kiev.
If this is not successful, the aircraft will be auctioned internationally.
KitsuneFox: syzygy - posts I have made here do not receive much attention. I may do a detailed writeup of the now lost Edgemont Park in PA, one of the first electrified trolley parks in the world, but still debating. I'm missing 1 key bit of information.
