LONDON – According to Dmytro Antonov, a Captain for Antonov Airlines, the AN-225 Mriya has NOT been damaged during the attacks at Gostomel.
Dmytro posted on Facebook that “the Mriya is whole” following the attacks, with large planes now becoming available.
Such a revelation comes following unconfirmed reports that the Mriya had been destroyed during the Russian MI-8 Helicopter attack on the Antonov base.
The airport has been occupied, however, as mentioned in a previous post on AviationSource.
Of course, this information is yet to be verified by Antonov directly but seems to be good news in the right direction.
