Is the real winner of biggest airplane. (Yes, thats the spaceshuttle mounted on its back on one of its more famous flights)

I agree.....about Passenger aircraft.

The aircraft you posted a photo of is:

The Antonov An-225 Mriya (Ukrainian: Антонов Ан-225 Мрія, Dream, NATO reporting name: 'Cossack') is a strategic airlift cargo aircraft, designed by the Antonov Design Bureau in the 1980s. It is the world's heaviest aircraft. The design, built in order to transport the Russian Buran orbiter, was an enlargement of the successful An-124 Ruslan

The orbiter on the photo is not the American shuttle but the Russian Buran

Because we don't speak Russian or......their sense of humour is very different and not possible for us to understand?

Both.
Anna tells me a joke about a bloke who has a horse in his bathroom and the Rabbi comes round and sees the horse. He says: "You've got a horse in your bathroom" to which the bloke replies:"What of it?"

She rolls up with laughter at this "joke", I just stand there with an uncomprehending look on my face.
She says: "You don't understand because you're British and no-one understands British humour so how can you understand Russian humour?"

So I ask her to tell me the joke in Russian. She fixes me a glare that would strip the paint from a Moscow park bench and says in that way that only Russian women can speak: "Fu on your jokes".

I know when to shut up... [whiteflag.gif]

Since the Russian and the American version are both the same size, it does not hinder any comparison of the picture [hi.gif]

At the risk of being accused of a cheap shot...

Look in the mirror and then tell me your wife hasn't got a sense of humour

Of course Russians have a sense of humour...but only they understand it because they're Russian.

Malcolm,
Please desist, I can only laugh so much and you have made me go over my monthly quota in one day.

Mark,
You should know better, wiz is always right.
The paint on the Russian Buran is a mini micron of an angstrom thinner therefore the comparison is inaccurate by 10 to the power of a minus followed by lots and lots of digits (also known as infinity and beyond).

I only posted the additional information because you forgot to mention the name of the largest aircraft in your original post!

That is all.......
