Philip Dziundzia, 29, captured the moment the biggest and heaviest plane in the world, Antonov An-225 Mriya, passed over his and his friends heads.

 

Filmed near Hostomel airport, Ukraine, the friends captured the plane passing by on the 23rd of April.

 

The An-225 became involved in the COVID-19 pandemic relief effort, conducting flights to deliver medical supplies.

 

Philip said: “Together with my friends, we woke up early in the morning to drive to the airport.

 

“The plane had a long period of maintenance and didn’t fly, so we were happy to see it in the air again.

 

“Of course I was stunned and amazed to see this huge machine in the air and so close above my head.

 

“It’s actually hard to realize and believe such a big machine can so easily fly.”
