Description:
The Antonov AN-225 Mriya (world's largest aircraft) carrying the Russian Space Shuttle Buran landing at the Paris Air show. Without a doubt, this is the heaviest touchdown in aviation history. I don't know what the total landing weight is, but the Mriya itself has a maximum take-off weight of over 1.3 million pounds, whilst a Boeing 747-400ERF, the next closest, has a MTOW of 910,000 pounds.

I just read the description again...I thought the plane with the next closest maximum take-off weight was the C5 Galaxy...

Apparently, this plane has found great success in the commercial cargo sector... in fact, it's so successful, they've pulled the second, uncompleted (work on it stopped around 1989) An-225 out of storage and have decided to finish building it... according to an article I read, the second one should just about be finished now.

#33, ...can't seem to find any updates as to whether the second one was ever officially completed.

The Buran is currently on display at the Auto & Technikmuseum in Speyer, Germany. It's more or less their new centerpiece exhibit.
