The An-225 is a six-engine development of the An-124 designed to carry the Soviet 'Buran' space shuttle on its back. A new central wing section with two more engines was inserted, twin tail fins were fitted, the landing gear was reinforced and dorsal attachment points were added. The first An-225 prototype flew on 21 December 1988. This prototype, after having been grounded for many years, is now operational as a jumbo cargo aircraft. <!--END BACKGROUND-->
