Remarks: After two days at the airport waiting for the departure of this giant, the AN finally leaves SCL at the worst time of the day, sorry about that. It was my first Antonov and this is the shot I wanted, with the gear still down. Come back soon please.
Remarks:My 400th Picture in Jetphotos.net! Possibly one of the highlights of 2009 arriving to CCS as VDA1208, after a long flight which included stopovers at Shannon, Gander and Orlando, carrying gas turbines for power generation. Dedicated to Orlando Suarez and Paul Longobardi, who joined me in this memorable spotting day.
