Zig-zag approach for the big Ruskie into D-M............



Flew a right-base like he was landing on 12 (with a couple of s-turns thrown in) then a high pass overhead and a 180 turn to finally land on 30. WTH?!?!?!?!?!?!

...Flew a right-base like he was landing on 12 (with a couple of s-turns thrown in) then a high pass overhead and a 180 turn to finally land on 30. WTH?!?!?!?!?!?!

Couple years ago I was watching arrivals for the DM airshow. There was a B-1 doing circuits around the city looking as though it would land on 12. All of a sudden 4 A-10's took off from 30 and it looked as though the B-1 was going to land the same way. So we all rushed to the other end of the runway and got there just in time to watch the B-1 land on 12...  so I know your frustration.

So apparently these guys make somewhat frequent trips to DM ,my question is that what would be so big that would need a An-124 to deliver it and that since it is going to a military base why not use a C-5 or C-17 ,if anyone happens to know or have an idea id like to hear

Helos, personnel, ground support equipment, cargo, aircraft parts (remember, AMARG is right there and they might be on a parts run for a foreign air arm).  Even if it is supporting USAF operations, other assets might be tied up with operational, training, and maintenance commitments.

Also foreign operators will use them to ferry their equipment to/from DM to attend Red Flag/Goldwater/etc. It's very interesting to watch them fly from the UK to here to Winnipeg, back to UK and on and on. I'd hazard a guess that they're here almost monthly.

Polet Flight 4711 Antonov An-124-100 RA-82080 on approach to Runway 30L at Willie this morning to pick up Boeing AH-64 Apaches.

I have more An-124 photos on my web site at http://air-and-space.com/Antonov%20An-124%20Ruslan.htm.
