The world’s largest plane took off from Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.
The Antonov 225 landed at MSP over the weekend. Operators of the aircraft postponed its take off until 9 p.m. Wednesday night.
"It's a Soviet aircraft that was actually meant to help launch space shuttles for the Soviet Union,” Pat Hogan, spokesman for the Metropolitan Airports Commission, said. “It’s used now to handle large pieces of cargo.”
The massive aircraft was in town to pick up air conditioning equipment. Its final destination is the Middle East.
The plane stops in the Twin Cities about four to five times a year and it’s a sight to see.
