The Antonov An-225 is a singularity and the world's largest cargo aircraft flying today.

https://www.cnn.com/travel/article/...e/index.html ... #2 lies unfinished in a hanger near Kiev

One way to collect the An-225 is by the stamps, but good luck finding those Gambian or Solomon Islands stamps GPUP (Genuinely Postally Used on Piece).

While you are waiting, you can create a Google Search on "AN-225" and follow the aircraft as it lands around the world:

You could print news of each 'visit', and attach ancillary items, such as a postcard of that airport / city / ethnography, or related stamps from that country, and build the sort of travel diary that a member of the flight crew might keep.

Cheers,

Wouldn't that have been the AN-225, the six-engined monster.

I've seen an AN-124 flying over the house after delivering a payload to Kennedy Space Center. There was one here the other day, but I didn't see it.

You are right! It was in 1989...
