Yakutia tends to require a special attitude, because everything is here special. Its land contains a lot of natural resources. To extract them from the ground, there must be special drilling rigs that appear to be specially large-dimensioned.
How to deliver such huge machines from manufacturers located far away? Right, there must be a special huge transport. It should be nothing else, but the world’s largest ever serially-manufactured cargo airplane, Antonov An-124 Ruslan.
Below, see 10 photographs of An-124’s landing at Yakutsk Airport on April 9, 2011. The plane delivered drilling rigs for industrial purposes.
