The Ukrainian-built Antonov An-225 Mriya is available in Microsoft Flight Simulator as the fourth edition of the “famous flyers” series.
For those who don’t know, the one-of-a-kind Antonov An-225 Mriya was the world’s largest aircraft in terms of weight and wingspan. The Antonov An-225 Mriya was destroyed in 2022 during Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
The Ukrainian government, however, has announced plans to build a second Antonov An-225 Mriya, which is perhaps appropriate given that “Mriya” means “dream” or “inspiration” in Ukrainian.
Exactly one year since the original Antonov An-225 Mriya was destroyed, Microsoft Flight Simulator has announced that it will be giving proceeds from the sale of the in-game aircraft toward the effort to rebuild the Antonov An-225 Mriya. The in-game An-225 will feature six available liveries.
