This film reveals the technological leaps forward that have enabled the world’s biggest cargo aircraft – the Antonov 124 – to be developed. The Antonov stands as tall as a 7-story building, and has a wingspan so massive, you could park 8 double decker busses end to end on its wings with room to spare. Its cavernous cargo bay can hold 50 family-sized cars. The aircraft has carried everything from battle tanks to other aircraft to every corner of the world. This film follows the Antonov team transport a huge train from Germany to India and explores how the aircraft was made possible through a series of six historic engineering breakthroughs. The film explores six landmark aeroplanes. Each features a major technological innovation that allowed engineers to build bigger and bigger cargo planes. Using high-end computer generated imagery that makes up 50% of the film, this film reveals the incredible stories behind these machines and the inventions that have enabled them to grow in size. Six ingenious leaps forward that enabled cargo planes to evolve …from BIG to BIGGER into the World’s BIGGEST."
