ANTONOV Company wrote:On 26 September, 2014 Ruslan (AN-124-100) that belongs to ANTONOV Airlines transported interesting cargo from Nantes (France) to Beijing (China). On this board the aircraft transported a mechanized dragon, a symbol of ‘horse−dragon spirit’. The dragon will participate in a China festival in a sign of 50−years anniversary of diplomatic relations between France and China. This unique model, 12 m of height and 46 t of weight, was constructed in France by La Machine Company. Eight operators are located inside the dragon to control it. The prototype is mounted on the transport vehicle that let move with definite speed. Specialists from the department of the ANTONOV Airlines cargo planning in close interaction with French engineers developed a special technology of load/unload this unique cargo with the total mass of 55 t in Ruslan. Preparation to transportation lasted 3 months.

Here's something I did this past weekend, just got all the photos uploaded... took my "Discovery flight" before beginning private pilot lessons. Here is me flying N5399K out of 06C (from the right seat). Can't wait for the first official lesson in a week or so. Click the photo for the full album.

This was the first time. It felt almost exactly how I expected, except that I didn't expect quite as much resistance and stability in the yoke. We had two passengers (my dad and my wife) in the back, so I'm thinking next time might feel just slightly different with a lighter load and different center of gravity.

It will feel different, especially on takeoff and landing. In the air, you might not even notice unless you do maneuvers. How long was the flight? Usually you can't even get 4 people (kids are an exception) in the plane without going over limits in the 172.

It was just over 1 hour (I had about 30 minutes of 'control' over the plane). We were strictly limited to a total of 600lbs between the 3 of us, and I'm proud to say we came in about 75 under that lol.

Antonov AN-178 demo flight training #360°
ANTONOV Company wrote:A demo flight training and demo flight itself belongs to the especial, the highest level of complexity. The crew has to control an aircraft at the extreme modes to display the airplane’s best characteristics. Pilots have to be most concentrated while such flight training. The video shows, how AN-178 new transport performs banks of 45-60 degrees, sometimes it reaches 90-120 degrees. The G-factor was 2.2.
The crew members: Andrii Spasibo, captain, and Sergii Troshin, co-pilot.

Notwithstanding what the pilots were thinking, I wonder what the PASSENGERS were thinking during this "takeoff" roll...
Note that this is entirely real (Royal Air Maroc comes in at 24 seconds). Not exactly what I would call great "airmanship."

This does make for some amusing musings, if one were to muse....

PF: "Ok, I'll rotate now, nose gear is coming up."
PC: "Fine by me man."
PF: "It is not leaving the ground!"
PC: "True! True! Please, land back on the runway, lower the nose a bit, and try again. It has to takeoff at some point, no?"
PF: "That's a great idea! I'll do that now."
...
PF: "Ok! Now I'll rotate, I think we're fast enough."
PC: "Hey! Great job, we are airborne. I'll put you in for a raise (pun intended)."

The General Electric TF39 at work (at 99.8% N1 to be exact). Just sit back and enjoy the music. :D
For an added bonus, the landing. Notice how the variable inlet guide vanes work, closing completely when the engines are throttled back to idle. That sound!
