One of the world's biggest aircraft has landed at Doncaster's Robin Hood Airport.

The Antonov 124 is the largest military transport aircraft in the world and touched down at the airport earlier today.

For thirty years, it was the world's highest aircraft gross weight production cargo airplane and second heaviest operating cargo aircraft, behind the one-off Antonov An-225.

The Antonov An-225 has also landed at the airport and was filmed at Robin Hood Airport last November.

Only one AN-225 Mryia was ever built by the company Antonov, and the giant of the skies has made several visits to Robin Hood in recent years.
