Footage has emerged of the world's largest jumbo jet landing at Robin Hood Airport Doncaster Sheffield, UK.

The video, filmed on Wednesday, shows the AN-225 Mryia (Dream) - the only one ever built - landing on the runway.

According to the filmer, the Antonov An-225 is a huge cargo aircraft, designed by the Soviet Union’s Antonov Design Bureau in the 1980s.


He later wrote online: "It is the longest and heaviest airplane ever built with a maximum take-off weight of 640 tonnes. It also has the largest wingspan of any aircraft in operational service."
