The world’s largest airplane has set off on along journey from Central Europe to the Australian Outback. The six-engine, 600 tonne aircraft – which once was used to transport a Soviet space shuttle on its roof – took off from Gostomel airport in Ukraine on Tuesday and will land in front of a huge crowd of aviation enthusiasts in Perth at 10am on Sunday morning.

 Designed and built in Ukraine in the 1980s, the immense ‘Antonov An-225 Mriya’ will have to pass through a number of refuelling stops across Eurasia, India and South East Asia before its 42 tyres hit the tarmac and drop off its precious cargo – an enormous 117 tonne power generator.
