The geeks and passengers at the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport, Hyderabad were up for a delight on Sunday (Deceaeroplanesssas they witnessed the landing of 1 of the world’s biggest cargo airplanes, Airbus Beluga. A press release from the airport operator GMR told the whale-shaped Beluga landed here on Sunday night 4th December and took off on Monday 5th December.
The Airbus Beluga is known for its ability to transport oversized air cargo, it stated. Earlier, the world’s “biggest cargo aircraft” Antonov An-225 made its 1st landing here in May 2016.
The Hyderabad airport was chosen based on the infrastructure strength and technical parameters, the release added. The Airbus Beluga is making frequent landings in India and also landed at Kolkata Airport a few weeks earlier.
The Airbus Beluga became the world’s biggest cargo plane after the sole example of the then world’s biggest cargo plane Antonov-225 Mriya was destroyed amidst the ongoing Russia-Ukraine war.
While the Ukraine government has declared the plane to be a whale-shaped plane, till the time it happens, Airbus Beluga with a quirky whale-shaped hull stays the world’s biggest cargo plane. On the other hand, the Airbus A380 stays the world’s biggest passenger plane in the world.
