Can't control the weather Sven! Fantastic shot of a super rare bird!

Sven, I just read that she caught fire, no details given in the story. Is she still in Leipzig? How much damage?

massive plane, strong bridge! Flew Leipzig-Keflavik-Goose Bay. Houston is next.

Supercraft!

it was just a single turbine that flamed out. Shouldn't be anything that grounds her for long.

Fantastic shot, Sven, of a beautiful bird...and the turbine flame out was nothing major...she's already in Brazil

many thanks for the feedback. The landing was verry interessting, because the RWY was changed from 26L to 26R. It was absolutly difficult to catch a new photopoint in such short time.
The aircraft is working. The reason for the little engine fire was a leakage on a shut-off valve. The part is replaced. (source Antonov).

The best foto! Why the bridge to come to an end at a plane tail? How he has got there? I won't understand.

@T.M.Sorry, my english skills are not good enough, to understand your question perfect. Maybee anybody can help.
The Bridge is a taxiway section between the nort-RWY and south-RWY / terminal.

@TM: The bridge ending is just an optical illusion because the tarmac changes color and the railing ends, the taxiway continues....

Just really amazed by the size,

If I am correct, she is the only one of her kind still air worthy? What of the AN124 ? How many are still flying?
