The Antonov 225 returns as a “ghost” on flight trackers with a message for Putin


The end of last week was marked as the moment when it was confirmed that one of the most important planes in history, and also the largest in the world, had been destroyed in Ukraine amid the invasion Russian.

After several days of speculation about the true condition of the Antonov An-225 Mriya, given photos of its damaged hangar, a video made by a Russian broadcaster at Gostomel airport near the capital, Kyiv, showed that there was practically nothing left of the entire front half. of the giant airplane.

But even with confirmation that the plane is no longer airworthy, a log on online tracking platform FlightRadar24 on Friday March 11 sparked controversy on social media.

Several people took screenshots showing what would be the An-225 registration UR-82060, the only example of the model ever built, performing a perfectly circular trajectory around Kiev and, moreover, the identification of the flight is an insult to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

It has not yet been confirmed what would have been done to make this record appear on the tracking platform, however, it is suspected that someone may have entered the information into the database, as due to the state of the conflict in Ukraine, such a flight around Kiev, even if carried out by a drone giving a false signal from the large aircraft, would be difficult to achieve.

Despite the screenshots, the record has been deleted from the database and it is no longer possible to find the flight in the Antonov An-225 history.
