An-225 "Mriya" - the largest aircraft in the world

111



An-225 "Mriya" (translated from Ukrainian - "dream") is the heaviest cargo aircraft ever to fly into the air. The maximum take-off weight of the aircraft is 640 tons. The reason for the construction of the An-225 was the need to create aviation transport system for the project of the Soviet reusable space shuttle Buran. The plane exists in a single copy.



The aircraft was designed in the USSR and built in 1988 at the Kiev Mechanical Plant.

Mriya set a world record for take-off weight and payload. 22 March 1989 of the year An-225 flew tons of 156,3 cargo, thereby breaking the world's aviation records 110, which is a record in itself.



Since the start of operation, the aircraft has flown 3740 hours. If we assume that the average flight speed (taking into account take-off, climb, cruise flight, descent, landing approach) is about 500 km / h, then we can calculate the approximate mileage: 500 x 3740 = 1 870 000 km (more than 46 turns around the Earth at the equator).



The scale of An-225 is amazing: the length of the aircraft is 84 meters, the height is 18 meters (like the 6-storey 4-access house)



Visual comparison of the Mriya and the passenger Boeing 747.

If we take the largest of the Boeing 747-800 as a basis, then the length of the An-225 will be longer by 8 meters, and the wingspan will be by 20 meters.
Compared to the Airbus A380, the “Mriya” is longer by 11 meters, and in wing span it exceeds it by almost 9 meters.



It happens that the airport does not have adequate parking for such a large aircraft, and it is placed directly on the runway.
Of course, we are talking about a spare runway, if one is available at the airport.



The wingspan is 88,4 meters, and the area - 905 m²

The only aircraft that surpasses the An-225 in wing span is the Hughes H-4 Hercules, which belongs to the class of flying boats. The ship rose into the air only once in the 1947 year. History this aircraft is reflected in the movie "Aviator"



Since the Buran spacecraft itself and the Energia launch vehicle units were larger than the Mriya cargo compartment, the new aircraft provided for securing loads outside. In addition, it was planned that the aircraft will be used as the first step at the start of the spacecraft.



The formation of a wake from the oversized cargo fixed at the top of the aircraft required the installation of two-tail tail units in order to avoid aerodynamic shadowing.



The aircraft is equipped with X-NUMX D-6T engines.
In takeoff mode, each engine develops 23,4 tons of thrust (or 230 kN), that is, the total thrust of all 6 engines is 140,5 tons (1380 kN)



It can be assumed that each engine in take-off mode develops power around 12 500 horsepower!



Engines of the An-18 D-225T aircraft are the same as those of the An-124 Ruslan.
The height of such an engine is 3 m, width is 2,8 m, and weight is more than 4 tons.



Starting system - air, with electric automatic control. The auxiliary power unit, consisting of two TA-12 turbine units installed in the left and right chassis fairings, provides autonomous power for all systems and engine start.



The mass of fuel in the tanks is 365 tons, it is placed in the 13 wing tanks-caissons.
The aircraft can remain in the air for 18 hours and cover a distance over 15 000 km.



The refueling time of such a machine ranges from half an hour to a day and a half, and the number of tankers depends on their capacity (from 5 to 50 tons), that is, from 7 to 70 tankers.



The fuel consumption of the aircraft is 15,9 tons / h (in cruise mode)
When fully loaded, the aircraft can be in the sky without refueling no more than 2 hours.



The chassis includes a two-post nasal and 14-rack home (7 racks on each side) supports.
Each rack has two wheels. Total 32 wheels.



Wheels need replacing every 90 landings.
Tires for "Mriya" produced at the Yaroslavl Tire Plant. The price of one tire is about $ 1000.



On the nose strut - the wheel size 1120 x 450 mm, and on the main - the wheel size 1270 x 510 mm.
The pressure inside is 12 atmospheres.



Since 2001, An-225 has been performing commercial freight as part of Antonov Airlines



Cargo cabin dimensions: length - 43 m, width - 6,4 m, height - 4,4 m.
The cargo cabin of the aircraft is sealed, which allows for the transportation of goods of various types. Inside the cab, you can place 16 standard containers, up to 80 passenger cars, and even heavy-duty dump trucks of the type BelAZ. There is enough space to fit the entire body of the Boeing-737.



Access to the cargo hold through the nose of the aircraft, which leans back up.



The process of opening / closing the cargo ramp takes no more than 10 minutes.



To lay out the ramp, the plane performs the so-called “elephant bow”.
The front landing gear is deflected forward, and the weight of the aircraft is transferred to the auxiliary supports, which are installed under the front threshold of the cargo compartment.



Auxiliary support.



Control panel of the squat system of the aircraft.



This method of loading has several advantages in comparison with the Boeing-747 (which is loaded through a compartment in the side of the fuselage.



“Mriya” is the record for the weight of the transported cargo: commercial - 247 tons (which is four times the maximum payload of the Boeing-747), commercial single cargo - 187,6 tons, and the absolute record of carrying capacity - 253,8 tons. June 10 2010 transported the longest cargo in the history of air transportation - two blades of a windmill with a length of 42,1 m each.



To ensure safe flight performance, the center of gravity of an aircraft with cargo must be within certain limits along its length. The lode master performs the loading in strict accordance with the instructions, after which the co-pilot checks the correct placement of the cargo and reports this to the crew commander, who decides on the possibility of flying and is responsible for this.



The aircraft is equipped with an onboard loading complex consisting of four lifting mechanisms, each with a load capacity of 5 tons.
In addition, there are two floor winches for loading non-self-propelled wheeled vehicles and cargo on the loading ramp.



At this time, An-225 chartered the French engineering company Alstom to transport 170 tons of cargo from Zurich to Bahrain, with refueling in Athens and Cairo.



This is a turbine rotor, a turbine generator for the production of electricity and components.

For towing the An-225 aircraft it is impossible to use the carrier of aircraft of other companies, therefore the carrier is transported on board the aircraft.

And since the plane is not equipped with a rear weight lifter and the towing carrier is unloaded and loaded through the front load lifter, which requires the aircraft to squat on the front foot full cycle, as a result, at least 30 minutes are lost and the design of the aircraft and squat system is spent unnecessarily.

To ensure turns when the aircraft is moving along the ground, the last four rows of the main support struts are orientated.

The heavy weight of the aircraft leads to the fact that the landing gear leaves traces on the asphalt.

The passenger compartment is divided into 2 parts: in the front is the crew of the aircraft, and in the rear is the accompanying and support staff.
Sealing cabins separate - they are separated by a wing.

The most distant point from the base airport, which was able to visit the plane, is the island of Tahiti, which is part of French Polynesia.
The distance along the shortest arc of the globe is about 16400 km.

Vladimir Vladimirovich Mason, mentioned in the engraving, is an engineer for the operation of the Armed Forces, who for many years worked for Mriya.





The aircraft commander (FAC) - Vladimir Y. Mosin.

To become the commander of the An-225, you must have experience flying the An-124 as the commander for at least 5 years.



Weight and centering control is simplified by installing weight loads on the chassis.



The aircraft crew consists of 6 people:
the commander of the aircraft, co-pilot, navigator, senior flight engineer, flight engineer for aviation equipment, a radio operator.



Ore

To reduce the efforts on the ORES and improve the accuracy of the installation of engine operating modes, a system of remote control of the engines is provided. In this case, the pilot makes a relatively small effort to move the lever of the electromechanical device mounted on the engine using cables, which reproduces this movement on the lever of the fuel regulator with the necessary effort and precision. For the convenience of joint control on take-off and landing, thrusters of extreme engines (RUD1 and RUD6) are coupled respectively with RUD2 and RUD5.



The steering wheel controls the largest aircraft in the world.

Control of the aircraft is booster steering surfaces are deflected exclusively by hydraulic steering gears, in the event of which they are not able to manually control the aircraft (with an increase in the required effort). Therefore, a fourfold reservation is applied. The mechanical part of the control system (from the steering wheel and pedals to hydraulic steering gears) consists of rigid rods and cables.
The total length of these cables is: aileron control systems in the fuselage - about 30 meters, in each console (left, right) wing - approximately 35 meters; The elevator and rudder control systems are about 65 meters each.



When an empty plane - for takeoff and landing enough 2400 m runway.
Takeoff with a maximum weight - 3500 m, landing with a maximum weight - 3300 m.



At the executive start, the engine starts warming up, which takes 10 minutes.

Thus, the engine surges on take-off are prevented and its maximum take-off thrust is ensured. Of course, this requirement leads to the fact that: the take-off is made during the minimum load of the airport, or the aircraft waits for its turn for take-off for a long time, skipping flights on a schedule.



The speed at take-off and landing depends on the take-off and landing weight of the aircraft and is 240km / h to 280 km / h.



Climbing is carried out at a speed of 560 km / h, with a vertical speed of 8 m / s.



At an altitude of 7100 meters, the speed increases to 675 km / h with a further continuation of the climb to flight level.



Cruising speed An-225 - 850 km / h
When calculating the cruising speed, the weight of the aircraft and the range that the aircraft must travel is taken into account.

ICAO's call sign for An-225 on the flight from Zurich to Athens was ADB-3038.



Airborne engineer - Yuri Anatolyevich Mindar.







Runway Airport Athens.

Landing at night on the “Mrie” is performed instrumentally, that is, using instruments, from a leveling height to touch, visually. According to the crew, one of the most difficult landings is in Kabul, which is associated with high mountains and many obstacles. Sunset starts at a speed of 340 km / h to a height of 200 meters, then gradually speed drops.



Landing is carried out at a speed of 295 km / h with fully released mechanization. It is allowed to touch the runway at vertical speed 6 m / s. After touching the runway, the thrust reverser is immediately shifted on engines from 2 to 5, and 1 and 6 are left on low gas. The chassis braking is carried out at a speed of 140-150 km / h to a full stop of the aircraft.





Aircraft life - 8000 flight hours, 2000 takeoffs and landings, 25 calendar years.

The aircraft can still fly up to 21 December 2013 of the year (25 is executed years from the moment of its start), after which a thorough study of its technical condition will be performed and the necessary work to ensure the extension of the calendar life to 45 years will be performed.



Due to the high cost of transportation on the An-225, orders appear only for very long and very heavy loads, when transportation by land transport is not possible. Flights are random: from 2-3 per month to 1-2 per year. Periodically there is talk of building a second instance of the An-225, but for this you need an appropriate order and appropriate funding. To complete the construction, an amount approximately equal to $ 90 million is needed, and taking into account the tests, it increases to $ 120 million.



Perhaps this is one of the most beautiful and impressive aircraft in the world.

Thanks to Antonov Airlines for help in organizing photography!

          Glad for your enterprise! Especially in light of the fact that "we have everything collapsed" What I can really say is that the plane was built in the USSR and there is no other in the world - this is OUR legacy of the EMPIRE! THIS IS OUR PRIDE! It was Mriya that was created for BURAN as well as ENERGY!

            Of the Slavic republics, Russia has the most wicked losses. The name of the evil wizard is HYDROCARBON. In Belarus and Ukraine it was impossible to close production with one hand, throwing people to starvation, and with the other hand to distribute crumbs from petrodollars, the main stream of which went into the pockets of your powerful! They closed up to the fact that they closed vocational schools !!! So, our professional builders are coming to you for money. There are none of ours! And we have closed a few industries. City-forming - not a single one. Only now, a little - but if there is already a new factory closing the labor market. About Gaster - in the Brest Regional Hospital comes from neighboring Ukraine - 80 people. Certified medical staff (nannies, nurses, nurses). Daily duty. But provided that there is not a single statement from the Belarusians in the frames. Like this. Learn while Old Man is alive!

    I was on a business trip in Gastomel at the beginning of the 90s, there is the ANTK aerodrome named after Antonov. I walked around looking at Antonov’s cars, it happened that I was passing a row with AN2 and accidentally turned my head and saw Mriya, as in a movie, compared to a corn carrier, I watched several times in the direction of AN2, to make sure that it’s exactly AN2.the machine is gigantic, it still seems to be called a wind direction sensor from the front, it was broken, as techies told me, when landing because of the large size they almost fit in and collided with the building , in the pictures I look no longer there. the glider of the second Mriya was also in the hangar, its fate is interesting.

              the main directions are transport aircraft. in the first place - the military, i.e. landing on unequipped platforms is desirable. hence this decision. it won't work differently

            Played out Ukraine - could go on mutually beneficial conditions, but as usual preferred to grab everything, well, or at least wanted too much. As a result, Russia makes the IL-476, Europe - the arbus, and Ukraine is left with nothing.
            The Kremlin honestly bargained to the last and hinted this way and that, but you can't see Kiev goons. In Ukrainian it is called "what I do not eat then I bite", but in Russian "neither myself, nor people"

        The great Putin has not ruined a single country yet. Moreover, he saved Russia from collapse (have you already forgotten Chechnya?) And slowly but surely pulls it (Russia) out of the "friendly" American embrace. Maybe I don’t remember, remember, did McFaul hand out bagels to the Moscow police on Bolotnaya, as his boss Nuland does on the Maidan, violating all conceivable and inconceivable norms of international "law"? And who was he "ashamed of"?
        Ukraine is simply impudently dragged into the European paradise, and people like you are contributing to this. Personally, the behavior of the "European Commissioners" reminded me of the advertisement "how to earn 500 doilers a day without leaving your home." The question arises: if it's so easy - why are you sharing this secret with everyone? Earn your billions on the quiet and rejoice! So it is here: live happily in your Europe and do not tell anyone how good it is there, so that freeloaders do not come running over and spoil raspberries. But no! Just by force of the name! Isn't it strange?
        But Putin is not calling. He just says: guys, WE ARE ONE PEOPLE! Nobody needs us as competitors! Only our resources are needed and we, as slaves. Have you really not taught history at all? The question is about the life and death of the RUSSIAN PEOPLE!

        Do you think you are kicking Putin? Not at all. You are alienating yourself and your unborn children from the rebirth of Mriya (DREAMS). Whether because of brainwashed. Or for 30 pieces of silver. It doesn't matter why you do it. The killer result is important.

And the shuttles in their automatic mode could not fly. And the ekranoplans, which our calculators calculated on logarithmic rulers in the 60s, do not work on supercomputers ...

    The launch of space shuttles from Mriya was not only cheap but also the problem of launching complexes like Baikonur disappeared, the ship could be launched from any airfield (which could withstand Mriya).

      2. time costs are given in the article (it is not difficult to calculate)

    Is there really no quick-going rich man in Ukraine who is ready to invest?
    "To complete the construction of the second copy of the An-225 aircraft, an amount of approximately $ 90 million is required, and taking into account the tests, it will increase to $ 120 million."
    So that An-225 could rightfully be called Ukrainian?

    Yes, the plane is impressive to the author thanks a lot for the article.
    I heard in a transmission for Mriya that they are now developing new engines that are more economical and more powerful, and after modernization, if the current capacity is held and the flight range increases. We hope that this succeeds.
    I don’t want to belittle the possibilities of Ukraine and the Antonov firm, how much they are still able to build another Mriya is just wonderful. As they say, respect and respect for the fact that they were able to save personnel and technology, but another Mriya is worried about a plane built using technology 25 years ago.
    Our continuity is broken; there are no young designers who could surpass this creation, imagine what kind of aircraft we could build now if there were no 90s devastation.

      So Volga-Dnepr has just ordered the development of the D-18T. True for Ruslan, but the engines are the same for Mriya, so if the cockpit is digitized and the engines are refined, the bird will flutter and flutter, and possibly more than one.

    Mriya was created to carry "Burana", which no longer exist and will not exist in the foreseeable future. If there are, then others are smaller and with other tasks. The shuttles did not justify themselves, neither economically nor technically. Americans and launches made three times less than the calculation of technical capabilities, and lost two of the six made shuttles. These are too big losses. And a bunch of astronauts were lost.
    Hence the fate of Mriya is clear. Carries a lot, but does not fly far. There is no doubt that we will never see the second instance either. As soon as Ukraine enters Euro-ass at the plant, you can put an end to. So watch while the flying museum is still flying. I think this aircraft will be enough even before the overhaul. And there they will put it in an eternal parking lot and slowly dismantle it into precious metals.

    The plane, of course, is grandiose. But it seems that a large number of them are simply not needed if flights are made as rarely as the article says. Not cost effective. Therefore, others did not build. It was in the USSR that they looked at profitability through their fingers if necessary for prestige or defense. In addition, no one cared how to use military developments for peaceful industry.

      rarely yes. expensive - yes.
      Not cost effective -? I doubt it. when at the exhibition, back in the 90s, he examined the plane, then in the cargo compartment there was a small report on the delivered goods. I remember that a turbine was delivered from Gringostan to Australia (it seems). they couldn’t deliver it to anyone else. if it’s impossible to deliver it to anyone else, then it is PROFITABLE.

    For its intended purpose, it will NEVER be used as part of the aerospace Mriya. To use it as a truck in the interests of foreign bourgeois is stupidity and a crime.
    After the collapse of the USSR and the USSR Ministry of Aviation Industry, to finance the remnants of the Soviet aviation industry on the territory of Ukraine, they created the Antonov Airlines cargo airline, collecting there all the super-heavy vehicles that had come from Ukraine. Ukrainian. it did not help the aviation industry, but it enriched the Kiva family, which parasitize on Antonov and this AK, especially since all prices for such air transportation are negotiable and non-transparent. Therefore, the temporary workers of Kiva and their patrons squeeze the last juice out of "Mriya", "Ruslan" and other machines - Ukraine is not able to build anything of the kind.
