World Record Freight by World's largest aircraft, Antonov An-225

The generator which is 187.6tonnes, was transported to Yerevan, Armenia from Frankfurt-Hahn Airport on 11th of August 2009. The airport claimed that it was heaviest single-piece cargo ever transported by air. The aircraft was Antonov Airlines’ An-225 Mriya (dream in Ukraine) powered by six Ivchenko Progress D-18 engines and maximum loading capacity is 250 tonnes. There is only one An-225 in operation now.
