AN225 would tower over a C5. I think the AN124 is larger also, I just dont feel like checking specs  wink

I agree...an Antonov AN-225 (the one that has the ability to carry the Space Shuttle on its back) definetly beats out the C-5. Not so sure about the AN-124, but it's very possible!! Cheesy

That doesn't prove it's big--they carry shuttles on the back of those little bitty 747s too.      Smiley

Digger, yea I know that. I was simply identifying it (there are many pics of the 225 with the Shuttle on its back).
