In Ukraine, for the first time after repair, the An-225 Mriya took off

After a lengthy repair in Ukraine, the An-225 Mriya aircraft first flew into the air. This was reported by the press service of the Antonov State Enterprise.


As previously reported, the Antonov company began repairing and modernizing the An-225 Mriya aircraft in 2018. On March 25, after an 18-month downtime, the plane took off from the airfield near Kiev and spent about 2 hours in the air.

The company does not cover changes made to the aircraft during the repair and modernization process, however, it is known that a new power plant control system was installed on the aircraft. In addition, as Ukrainian media write, it is assumed that the An-225 received new power plants from the Ukrainian Ivchenko-Progress and updated avionics. It is also reported that soon multifunctional displays of Ukrainian production will be installed on the plane.

# AN225 performs test flights after modernization. In particular, the Ukrainian-made power plant control system was installed on the aircraft - # An225 vikonu viprobuvalnі poloti pіslya modernizatsії. Zokrem, bulo installed a new ceruvanny system by the power plant of the Ukrainian virobnitz

Submitted by Antonov Company Wednesday, March 25, 2020

Recall that the An-225 "Mriya" exists in a single copy - the plane completed its first flight in 1988. The car is operated by the Ukrainian company Antonova Airlines. However, in July last year, information appeared that the Antonov company intends to complete the construction of the second An-225 aircraft, which began in 1989 and continued until 1994, after which it was frozen. 70% of aircraft readiness to date is reported.

Today, the An-225 Mriya is the largest transport aircraft in the world. Equipped with six turbojet engines, it is capable of lifting up to 250 tons of cargo into the air.

      They modernized the Soviet legacy. Avionics most likely put the western one.
      During the modernization, the An-225 received a new power plant control system of Ukrainian production and updated avionics. In addition, the cockpit received multi-functional indicators (displays). They are subsequently planned to be installed on the An-124-100 Ruslan.

      By the way, did the An-225 ever lift 250 tons into the air?
      The An-225 Mriya asset has several world records at once. In particular, the transportation of cargo weighing 187,6 tons.

            I also thought so before, until it was found out that equipment assembled from Chinese components was entering the communications troops, and the electronics industry remained in the Soviet past. Although nameplates re-stick is also a kind of localization.

                We are modernizing our own - Soviet, and the Sumerians - our Soviet, This is the whole difference. We made this plane an alliance, not them. Nothing like this will happen to them again. Only Tsibul except grow record crops.

Right now, idle AKs with liners bite their elbows, when their colleagues on an old cargo MD / 747 make denyuzhku, and they only generate losses on supernova 787/380 and others, and they think it would be more beautiful to go bankrupt.

        If only everything had happened without incident. Did the An-225 have the D-18T 3 series engines installed? Otherwise, there are problems with them.
        According to the information portal "Aviation of Russia", Ukraine may have problems with the An-124 and An-225 due to the uncontrolled failure of the D-18T engines used on these aircraft. So, referring to the data of the industry publication FlightGlobal.com, the source indicates the need to check the engines on all aircraft of this type due to the appearance of a message about an uncontrolled failure of the power plant.

        The publication notes that after the State Aviation Administration of Ukraine (GASU) conducted an investigation of the “serious incident” that occurred with the An-124 aircraft, the destruction of the second-stage disk in the intermediate-pressure compressor was noted. It is noted that GASU has already issued an appropriate directive to operators indicating the need for a one-time inspection of the drives in the D-18T series 3 power plants.

        As a result, from March 25, for six months, non-destructive eddy current testing should be carried out to check dovetail disk connections in the D-18T aircraft engine. ...

        If I'm wrong - correct.
        The cost of transporting ordinary goods on the same Ruslans is not competitive. These aircraft can only make a profit when transporting bulky (or heavy and not separable) cargo that doesn’t fit into another transporter — here they are beyond competition. With "Mriya" the same story.

        In confirmation of what I said above, I can say that, for example, in the Volga-Dnepr group, AirBridgeCargo has sharply increased its profit by 747s, but the “indigenous” Volgo-Dnepr Airlines with heavy Ruslans and “ILami” - it doesn’t show much profit growth.

        And the increase in traffic is not associated with "masks from China." Carriers say that previously a huge part of cargo was transported by passenger sides (the same low-cost airline restricts you in the weight of your baggage, and the cargo compartment clogs with left-hand cargo) - today, when they remain on the ground, only transport workers can carry goods.

          Well here is the whole truth. But now there are orders with payment higher than usual. Also, the oversize is quite likely to carry yourself. The same mobile hospitals / crematoriums. If, as promised by all sorts of pessimists, the account of the sick will go to hundreds of millions, and to the dead by hundreds of thousands.

        Passenger remodel in cargo quite easily.
        In Israel, the IAI has a license from Boeing for such alterations there and back.
        It takes a couple of weeks.

          Sorry, but you are not quite up to date. To convert from a passenger plane to a truck, for example B747, it is necessary to dismantle all passenger equipment, chairs, kitchens, toilets and other junk, with a total weight of about 40 tons. Next, you need to cut a cargo door on board, install a system for opening / closing it, strengthen the floors, install a roller conveyor system, attachment points, and some other little things. The total cost of the work is about $ 25 million. For two weeks, well, there’s no way to manage it, it’s really about 6 months. Well, back from the truck to the passenger, no one is redoing, what's the point with such costs.

            In Israel, they did this in two weeks. With everything you described. When everything is prepared and synchronized, the work flies.

                I believe.
                A fellow engineer told me how the Chinese built a commercial port in Ashdod. A breakwater of giant stone blocks they mounted in a day. Ours would poke around with each block for a week. They give out a fantastic pace in construction and installation.

                  Faith does not require proof. A breakwater is a breakwater, and resuscitation is from another opera.
                  This hospital was built in 10 days and not in 3 naturally. And there are no hundreds of intensive care units there. Do not confuse air purification systems in the ward with resuscitation. These are different "planets" in complexity

                  And military field hospitals with resuscitation facilities (not hundreds, of course, but a dozen) are deployed over the week in several cities of the same Italy.
                  Hundreds of places can be built up quickly only in existing hospitals where there is already the necessary infrastructure.

                In any case, similar alterations and construction in Europe take weeks and months. And in China - a few days. We have to admit that in terms of logistics and the pace of construction / installation, China has dramatically overtaken the whole world.

        Not all airfields are capable of receiving “Mriya”, so it’s a bit wary of “any” points - this aircraft is by and large not intended for troop transfer at least because of the impossibility of hiding its flight.

          Hard case...
          Every day it becomes harder to communicate on the forum, more and more people with zero competence in the issues discussed.
          Do you know the basics of tactics and combat strategies? You know the definitions bridgehead and methods for its creation and expansion? Look at the concept of “strategic object” at least on Wikipedia and you will be surprised to learn that any large airport capable of accepting heavy transport aircraft and capturing the airport is a strategic object, after which an offensive develops in designated directions. It was in Pristina, when our paratroopers on armored personnel carriers crashed into an airport capable of receiving IL-76, it was in Donetsk, when several months were cut down for the airport and shot down landing ILs, which provided power to the APU that was holding the defense.
          this aircraft is by and large not intended for troop transfer at all

          Well, yes, in the USSR, even the Ural civilian motorcycle had a slot for a machine gun in the cradle, and when developing Mriya, on the basis of decisions taken from the An-124, they took it and forgot to provide for a “dual purpose”. They were able to build the largest aircraft in the world, but they did not provide for the possibility of installing benches ...
          at least because of the inability to hide his flight.

          And here my speechlessness disappeared somehow to comment. Do you want to say that the IL-76 has stealth technology? And about the concepts of how air defense systems suppression и cover for landing operations you also apparently did not hear?
          And the most murderous thing is that if An-225 and Ruslany were produced in Russia, you would sing a completely different song about its versatility and great potential.

              They famously pinned me up, considering that in view of quarantine I decided to fix up the model of the ChS-7 electric locomotive on a scale of 1:32 for I’m not used to thumping (((. Do not believe it, I sit for days on end and scale the drawings, immediately realizing scale parts from cardboard.
              I mean, for obvious reasons, you have to immediately make your design decisions for a number of "hidden" nodes, the drawings of which I don’t have, and this is the very creativity and alternative dual-use solutions for design, which in any case are considered when real design.

            And about the concepts of how to suppress air defense systems and cover airborne operations, you also apparently did not hear?

            I didn’t hear, but I know that Grachev, being the Minister of Defense, unequivocally said that our Airborne Forces would not be able to land by air against a serious enemy - they would be destroyed before they reach the landing site. And this will happen on the basis of intelligence data, which will reveal not only the take-off of several IL-76s, but also the very fact of loading airborne formations into aircraft.
            Go to learn the materiel, and do not fool people with your tales about the vision of a future war - you are simply not in the subject.

              The flight of such an aircraft always requires prior approval in peacetime, and in military time it will be destroyed before approaching any major airfield.

              Look, in 2015, Russia managed to secretly transfer forces to Syria and prepare to receive the main forces. Since then, as far as I know, the Russian Federation has had no problems with the transfer of goods and personnel on board the BTA.
              First, the IL-76 requires a simpler runway

              And Budenov’s cavalry does not require diesel fuel! )))
              It was designed for completely different purposes, mainly related to cargo for the space industry.

              Completely agree, you are absolutely right here, but the An-225 has a “side” inheritance from the An-124 in the form of a giant cargo compartment, in which you can transport anything within the bulk. It’s logical that tanks and military equipment are the first candidate, but I’m keeping silent about how the rank-and-file composition in Afghanistan, almost standing in formation, was kept silent.
              I didn’t hear, but I know that Grachev, being the Minister of Defense, unequivocally said that our Airborne Forces would not be able to land by air against a serious enemy - they would be destroyed before they reach the landing site.

              Grachev bluntly and courageously said what everyone already knew about, but were afraid to say in a rumor. In addition to direct landing operations, behind enemy lines, there is still a need to deliver reinforcements and supplies directly to the front line, and here An-124/225 aircraft can play an irreplaceable role. As for airports, in the early 60s, not every airport was able to take a passenger jet, however, now for granted.
              We need to look to the future, there will be large planes, and they are already appearing, the same A-380 is not much inferior to Ruslan, there will be more and more airfields capable of receiving them. No need to prepare for yesterday’s war, you have to live tomorrow.
              PS If anything, that I gave you a plus, not a minus, as you might think))). What is the difference which of us is right, the main thing is that the discussion would be good;)

            In fact, if you didn’t know, most Ruslans were built in Russia at the Ulyanovsk Aircraft Plant. The last were completed by the forces of the VD and Flight, in the mid 2000s. Regarding the transportation of troops and all that. Do you even know that the cargo cabins of these aircraft can be inflated only 750 times per resource? In normal use there is reduced pressure. How do you carry personnel? Regarding the stealth of flights, your opponent had in mind that for IL76, at least, there is the possibility of a long flight at low altitude, to reduce the likelihood of detection. It is doubtful that Mriya can do this. Yes, and for spy-spies, the simultaneous departure of even several IL-76s is an ordinary event, but the departure of Mriya is something else, it’s hard to ensure secrecy. Can you imagine the reaction to the loss of such an aircraft, with a large number of personnel on board? And if he is only one?

        serg.shishkov2015 ...... Oleg Konstantinovich has all the planes beautiful! Old Man An-2 is still handsome! Already exotic in retro style!

        As for the "beauty", the "Tupolev" are not killed. In this regard, all the designers envied him, not only ours, but also foreign ones. Just "fashion" in aviation has moved in a different direction. Previously, they did not rack their brains about the "economic problems" of aviation, but posed cardinal tasks for it that were not inherent in other types of ground-based technologies. Antonov cars are not so beautiful, because they have a different purpose than Tupolev’s. And the whole direction in world aviation is strictly regulated by the requirements
        to her for today. All "ans" are simple "robots" - their main value, operation in the conditions of low-income ground airports, both in the Air Force and in "civilian". Antonov - headed the design bureau transferred from Novosibirsk to Ukraine in 1947, under the code - " An ". His first massive offspring - An-2, about which, he, before leaving life, said - the best plane I created was
        An-2. And this is understandable, this aircraft of his air youth was the first "damn", and it did not turn out to be "lumpy", but became one of the most popular in the world. It is still being released in China. He is for me - the plane of my air youth.
        With regards to the "Mriya" An-225 - a plane of a strictly narrow purpose. It was created for the transfer of “Buran” from the place of production, to the place of launch - on its “back”, it was the first and last decision in the world. Now using it as a classic transporter is more expensive, especially in a single copy. Technical marketing support is not provided for him at all, not only in Ukraine, but also in the world. He has no prospects, not for the military, not for the civilian. This niche has long been occupied. Unless, Ukrainians will offer on his "hump" to carry around the world the printing press of the US Federal Reserve. and in the cargo compartment the service staff.hi

          Truth? And the fact that the Shuttle, which was slightly redone by the 747th years, drove the Shuttles, and even, by the way, the Shuttle from the back of the carrier and took off (detached) during trials, do you not know?

            Why, I know! Just not the "big difference", B-747-SCA (2 pcs),
            were "refitted" for the transportation of the Shuttles. and An-225 It was originally designed for the transportation of "Buran", and "Energy". He had tail tail specially arranged for them. And it was not a “refinement”, but the first construction in the world. Therefore, there is no "copy" here. And no rockets took off from the Boeing, they were simply dropped with the crew a couple of times, and that was it. These B-747SCAs are both decommissioned around 2012.
            And the launch of the rocket from the "transporter" is with us. On the IL-76MD-90A missile "Liner", but this is from another opera. hi

              The principle and idea have been copied, although, I think, in the USSR this was pondered / was thought up earlier.
              In general, it is much more literate from an economic, and, in some cases, and from a technical point of view, adaptation of an existing aircraft, rather than "fencing" a super car, which, as it turned out, is not needed. So it has been / flies for so many years in splendid isolation. and the Boeings were used in accordance with the target task, and completed it as it should.
              And the liquid "Liner" with 10 warheads is Makeevskaya game, moreover, fantasy.

            20 flights in 4 years, do you think "very much in demand" ?!
            Since 2012 2016, An-225, registration number UR-82060
            Antonov Airlines, performed only two dozen flights. (bmpd.livejournel.com).
            One aircraft of this class can never pay for itself. Its too expensive operation - starting from maintenance.
            For him, you need to keep separate service teams and carry them with you in the open. I already wrote what will happen to him far from his base, the airport, if any unit fails, not to mention the engine. I remember that in the 90s, in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates, An-124 Ruslan, there was a week in anticipation when they would bring him a generator to replace one that failed with one of the engines. The An-225 will not be able to carry all spare parts with itself, and most importantly, where can I get them?
            Nothing is being done for him. Only "rip off" the donor, the second side, is so unfinished. Even the intervention of Poroshenko, did not give a result. There are no funds for completion of the second side in Ukraine.
            Therefore, one side is not a warrior in transportation. hi

      Lena, don’t be offended, but it will probably be a cultural shock for you to find out that this plane was created a little for other purposes than to transport tons of buckwheat and toilet paper every day from warehouses in Kiev to Zhytomyr, Vinnitsa, etc. on such routes from takeoff to landing, he will not have time to remove the chassis, not to mention that he would reach the level of 10000 meters.
      This is a unique aircraft designed for unique cargo. Each of his working flights is essentially an unprecedented international special operation to deliver oversized cargo to the nearest airfield, which the An-225 can take.

              Dear Erosa. The main airport for the AN-225 has always been one in Ukraine and this is not Donetsk airport, but Gostomel near Kiev. It was under the Ukrainian SSR, it is under independent Ukraine. If every few years the MRIA plane flew to Donetsk, this does not mean that the airport is the main one for it. Therefore, you do not need to write in the comments about what you are poorly versed in. Regards, Red Dragon.

    Victor Ilyich Tolmachev (August 11, 1934, Kursk, USSR - June 7, 2018) - Soviet and Russian aircraft designer. One of the creators of the An-124 Ruslan and An-225 Mriya.

    Nice plane. The first flight was carried out in 1988. In 2013, the aircraft’s operating deadline expired. In the same 2013, the Ukrainian State Air Service extended the life of the An-225 until 2033. What will happen to the An-225 after 2033 is a big question. The aircraft was created in cooperation with all aircraft manufacturing enterprises of the USSR (Moscow, Ulyanovsk, Kiev, Voronezh, Tashkent).

      bobba94.... The first flight was carried out in 1988. In 2013, the aircraft’s operating deadline expired. In the same 2013, the Ukrainian State Air Service extended the life of the An-225 until 2033. What will happen to the An-225 after 2033 is a big question.

      In economic terms, Ukraine is now much worse than Russia in the 90s.
      In the 90s in Russia, before the aviation, that military, that civilian, nobody cared.
      As Yeltsin said, now I’m not up to your aviation, fly on what is,
      but it’s over, we’ll buy modern ones from our friends. From that moment on, the entire, most powerful aircraft industry of the USSR began to crumble like a house of cards.
      The aircraft fleet wore out, the exhausted resource units were pulled off from other decommissioned ones and introduced to another flying one. The extension of the resource of the aircraft was worked out until automatic, the messengers "charged" in the design bureau of the manufacturer and in Moscow. Dachshund has been established. The papers were signed - the aircraft received an extension of the "certificate of operation."
      So, extending the life of the An-225 to 2033 is not a shock to me, and not news. The paper endures everything until it is paid, until the plane
      "disappear." The longest life time for an airplane is given to a glider. Therefore, the An-225, theoretically, can be operated until 2033, namely a glider, and
      the aircraft consists of tens of thousands of units, and each of them has its own, much smaller resource from the airframe. Are there any production facilities in Ukraine that produce units for the An-225 ?! The answer is no - no! Dozens of factories in the USSR participated in this production. In Ukraine, they are not a priori.
      Summary: Now An-225 for Ukraine is a suitcase without a handle. Solid show-offs.
      He has no worldwide service support. He must carry a service team with him. If there is a malfunction with a failure of the unit requiring replacement, where can I get it? And this happens not infrequently. The aircraft is forced to stand idle in anticipation of the “sending”, in the event that such an assembly is at all. And since the AN-225 in Ukraine is in a single copy, and all the units for it are no longer manufactured in Ukraine, then it can get the last flight in one direction. Therefore - An-225 now for Ukraine - big show-offs for the whole world, but in fact, a very expensive suitcase without a handle.
      Even China did not pose for it, because he does not need it. The niche of overall transportation in aviation has long been occupied - An-124 and S-5. And even they are not 100% loaded in their activities. hi

    Not yet managed to ruin the skakuas?
    It would be quicker for Russia to get this enterprise, Together with the rest of sane production Ukraine!

      Why? In Russia, an analogue of Mriya is already being created - the Elephant plane with four PD-35s. And the old Soviet cooperation cannot be resumed.
      Together with the rest of sane production Ukraine!

      This is no longer there. They simply modernized the An-225 built in the USSR.
      Faster Russia would get this company,

      Why? They themselves are not even able to complete the An-148/158.

    It is also reported that soon multifunctional displays from Ukrainian production will be installed on the aircraft.


    And now how did he fly with old displays or without them at all? And when will they change them, then right in flight by the forces of pilots or technicians on the ground?

      I saw this plane in Baku, then flew out of this city, saw it from the car as it landed and saw it from the airport building in the far parking lot, even the pictures were in some old phone, in my opinion on Blackberry, it was this year So in 2012-2013, by the way, “Ruslans” of the Volga-Dnepr company were often met in Baku in the 0th and 10th, a lot of equipment they delivered there for international (mainly BP controlled) projects.

    Let me remind you that the AN-225 Mriya was created for a specific purpose - the delivery of LV and OK MTKS Energia-Buran units to the Baikonur cosmodrome.



    It was also planned as an air launch under the program of the Multipurpose Aviation Space System.



    The use of such a unique aircraft in commercial freight transportation is a result of hopelessness and the inability to use it for its intended purpose.

    Judging by the news of Antonov Airlines then
    3 An 124-100 are busy transferring medical aid cargoes to Europe from China (Czech Republic used SALIS to get help)
    First Antonov has already delivered 70 tons of equipment from Shenzhen (China)
    The remaining 2 will make the transfer a bit later.
    The largest aircraft in the world will also soon be ready for work after the next modernization.
    Reading the comment, I understand how much the level of discussion has fallen on VO.
    Previously, someone would have disputed the opinion of the details about the unification of the An 124 with the An 225, but now you can drive the blizzard that they are not or cannot be replaced .. For Antonov Airlines, the whole world offers opportunities (and given that they have German protection it’s easier for them to make up for scarce parts even which are not produced in Ukraine)
    I’m curious about Mriyu, too, will be included in the program of medical assistance to the world, although it is not particularly suitable for the delivery of such cargo. An 124 is much better here.
    Without Antonov Airlines, Mriya wouldn’t exist now, just like there wasn’t Buran.
    And so thanks to the Ukrainian airline (as well as the Germans), Mriya still flies, working for the benefit of mankind. Well, it sets new records.

      Can you tell me what is the patronage and help of the Germans? Especially in terms of spare parts? It's no secret that the degree of unification of the spare parts of Ruslan and Mriya is quite high. Most of this nomenclature of spare parts has been produced and is produced by the Russian Federation. Do you seriously believe that someone in Germany will organize the design, production, testing and certification of a limited number of spare parts for only seven Ruslans and one Mriya that Antonov Airlines has? I think such charity is not there.
      By the way, I quite positively evaluate the news about the beginning of Mriya’s flights, after modernization. In the end, most of my aviation life is connected with Antonov’s aircraft. Just this news, more propaganda than practical. This aircraft is very highly specialized, for the transportation of ordinary goods and consumer goods, is not suitable at all. Regular commercial activities are also out of the question.

    I also thought so before, until it was found out that equipment assembled from Chinese components was entering the communications troops, and the electronics industry remained in the Soviet past. Although nameplates re-stick is also a kind of localization.

    You are strange people, when was the last time you saw Made in Japan or German finished products, and the electronics (accessories) are Taiwan, Samsung made in China. Conclusion - we don’t need to spin electronic components, we will not catch up - we need to use imported wisely for assembly. China itself didn’t come up with it, it localized many large firms simply and mustache.
