Ukrainian “Mriya” in Denmark: Life-size shadow of the world’s largest cargo plane appeared on Funen Island
A life-size shadow of the Ukrainian “Mriya” (Ukrainian for “dream”) appeared on the fields of Funen Island in Denmark. The project of the famous Ukrainian sculptor Nikita Zigura is dedicated to the anniversary of the Independence of Ukraine.
“This is a symbol of Ukraine’s victory, a symbol of the victory of life over death,” Nikita Zigura told Ukrainska Pravda. “We will rebuild everything. And the plane, of course, too.”
The 80-meter shadow of the largest plane in the world, the Ukrainian An-225, depicted on a wheat field in Denmark, is visible even from space.
Ukrainian Antonov An-225 Mriya was the world’s largest aircraft, having a length of 84m and a wingspan of 88m. It could carry up to 250 tons of cargo. The An-225 Mriya set 240 world records — a unique case in aviation. Russian missile attack on the Hostomel Airport near Kyiv destroyed Ukrainian Mriya on February 27, 2022.
