A former Soviet military cargo aircraft, the Antonov 225 is the world’s biggest plane. It causes a sensation wherever it lands.
A cargo plane has crashed near the city of Abidjan in Ivory Coast, killing four and injuring six. Moldovans and French nationals were on board.
The German aircraft was hijacked by Palestinian militants in 1977 and taken to Somalia. The plane, which is a reminder of the so-called "German Autumn," will now be put on display at a museum in Friedrichshafen.
Journalist Grit Hofmann took a ride on the world’s largest aircraft: the Antonov 225. She broadcast her adventures live on the Periscope app. What does her multimedia project involve? And why was she the only woman allowed on board?
