It's not every day you see a 275-foot-long plane carrying a 130-ton generator take to the skies.
A Ukrainian cargo jet named "Mriya" made a rare flight over the weekend, landing in Australia on Sunday to a sea of spectators waiting to get a good look at the world's largest plane.
The plane departed from Prague for this trip, picking up a massive generator. One official in charge of moving the generator told ABC Australia, "It is [130 tons] of solid steel, so there is only one aircraft in the world that can carry that cargo."
