Airborne 02.28.22: AN-225 Destroyed, AEA/SnF22 LIVE, Roscosmos Threat

Also: King FOI Course, AUVSI Changes Name, Dassault, Flightradar24 Takedown

In light of the many tragedies we are seeing arising out of the wanton destruction of Ukraine by Russia, it almost seems silly to note that a one-of-a-kind aviation treasure also appears to have been destroyed. While still not quite official, numerous reports strongly suggest that the world’s largest operational transport aircraft, the Antonov AN-225 ‘Mriya’ (‘Dream’ in Ukrainian), may have been destroyed in the Russian invasion. The massive six-engine transport was the only one of its kind, after insufficient money was allowed to finish an in-process second iteration nearly twenty years ago. The next few weeks are going to be intense for ANN as we prep for the LIVE webcasting that has been a part of the Aircraft Electronic Association for nearly a decade and a half, as well as the 2022 Sun ‘n Fun Aerospace Expo, a week later. AEA LIVE Coverage can be seen at Sun n Fun DAILY Coverage will be webcast from Comments made by the Russian head of the Russian space agency, Roscosmos, have hit a nerve when he pushed back on the public perception of US sanctions, essentially telling followers on social media in so many words: "You need us more than we need you." All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
