Antonov An-225 Mriya The Mriya is the largest aircraft in the world. It has six large engines on each huge wing, and wan carry a space shuttle on it's back. It has a 34 wheels, to cushion it's landing. There was only one made, and it got repainted like the one above. It has two giant verticle stabilizers to keep it balanced. The An-225 was first made to carry the Energia rockets for the Soviet union. The Mriya was used in the space program. It's cargo bay opens up with the nose. I think that the Mriya might be the largest aircraft in the world forever.
