Drone Footage Shows Extensive Damage to World’s Heaviest Aircraft.

Drone footage captured extensive damage to Hostomel airport and the world’s heaviest aircraft, in video released by the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense on April 4, 2022.

The Antonov-225 Mriya cargo plane was destroyed by a Russian attack on the airport, situated in a northwestern suburb of Kyiv.

Mriya, along with lighter aircraft housed in the hangar, was surrounded by burned-out and abandoned tanks and other heavy artillery, following Russia’s withdrawal from the airport.

Convoys of destroyed military vehicles also lined the tarmac outside the airport’s hangar.
