Ok, that was the dumbest questions in history of the dumbest question when this girl asked whether Australians trust Ukrainian airline transport company.
So you're German and you know something and you can do something and you're completely shocked to find out other people can do the same and even better than you? Wait is this whole world just about, and there just for "you"? How arrogant! Well, hail Hitler bitch, but take your feminizm back home. Didn't see one women working in this transport. 😐 Where is this chick from? She never ate a pear 🍐? 😮😥😭
Dear, you know, just go back home you're embarrassing.

what a amazing ride

This is an awesome plane. I got to see it take off from San Diego one time.

Superb film! I saw this plane take off from Perth airport purely by luck but had no idea of the fascinating story behind the flight.

There are no generators in australia ?
Heavy airplane and heavy german accent! :-D
Marcos Mota
Good job on the Czechs if their generators are worth all the cost and logistics!
Harry Balls
No one in Perth can build a generator?
Shane Matthews
This aircraft was supposed to be the first of a series, although to date only the one example has been produced. Probably things in Europe will have to settle down before there's a market for more of them.
Martin Eriksson
Imagine building this thing from scratch now, the same specs but with fly-by-wire, modern flight control and the most efficient engines today. What a amazing machine it would be!

Best documentary ever on youtube.
Shared with retired fret pilot who appreciated ;-)

Interesting how the Captain pays his bills with US currency. Lots of $100s. Very impressive operation.

Blown away. The crew is received everywhere like movie stars. The low fuel efficiency is incredible, just like an old 18-wheeler, but it's the only one that can do the job.
Wasn't it going to be cheaper to build the generator on-site?
I've seen an AN-124 next to a C5. The 124 appeared to be a little bigger, the 225 dwarfs the 124. Mindboggling.
That generator weighs about 10,000 lbs more than a 747 -400 cargo can carry but the antonov can carry 2 of them with 35K lbs to spare.

This airplane works after EMP same before...
Artur Okrutniak
Documentary so good that I watched it twice!
Seth Samuel
Did not believe this massive machine was real until I saw it today on DW
Bobby Paluga
Excellent one of the best documentaries I’ve seen.

9. Chengdu J-20
China, for all its greatness, hasn't always made the best aircraft, but in 2011, they unveiled the J-20. Many consider this to be the first jet fighter from China that matches up to what Russia, the United States, and others can do, and for good reason.

8. Lockheed Martin F-35
The Lockheed Martin F-35 was built as the cheaper, yet still fully functional replacement to the F-22 Raptor. For a replacement, it truly lives up to the hype. The F-35 is one of the deadliest fighter jets on the planet. This is a multi-purpose fighter jet, and one that serves not just the Air Force, but the Marines who started using the F-35B in 2015.

7. F-15 Eagle
You'd think that after 30 years of service that a plane like the McDonnell Douglas F-15 Eagle would eventually be taken out of the lineup. But instead, the F-15 Eagle has proven time and time again that this craft is something to behold, and it deserves our respect.

6. Sukhoi Su-57
Russia has often been known for their masterful jet fighters, with their MiG's being both legendary and feared.But when it comes to modern fighters, they're pinning their hopes on the Sukhoi Su-57. Like a lot of jet fighters, this one was built from the ground up, in order to replace some "aging" models, including the MiG-20 and the Su-27 (which they are selling to China).

5. Eurofighter Typhoon
Even back in 1986, there was a desire to make jet fighters who could go beyond the visual range of combat as well as do what needed to be done in battle, and so the Eurofighter Typhoon was born.

4. Sukhoi Su-35
The Sukhoi Su-35 is another Russian Jet, built based off of the Su-25 model. Don't let its paint job fool you, this is a key part of the current Russian Air Force, and has been in use by the country since 2012. The Sukhoi Su-35 was built to be an air superiority fighter, one that can match many other jets from other countries.

3. MiG-31
The MiG's series of jet fighters are by and large the most recognizable jets that Russia has ever used, and their prowess in the Korean and Vietnam wars have made them a staple of air warfare. With the Mikoyan MiG-31BM we have the latest model of this esteemed line, but it also proves that jet design has come a long way since.

2. F-22 Raptor
In the USA, the F-22 Raptor is still widely considered one of the best fighter jets ever made. Created by Lockheed Martin, the F-22 Raptor is a fighter jet that is nearly invisible to all radar systems, which makes it incredibly valuable for both recon and precision strikes. It was built for true superiority, which means it has the range, maneuverability, and the weaponry to take to the skies and take out all opposition. It’s vast array of missiles also help!

1. GR5-Harrier Jump Jet
While all of these jets are incredible feats of engineering and power, did you know that there are many of these jets that you can actually buy? And one of the most unbelievable ones that you can get is the GR5-Harrier Jump Jet. This jet can get up to 731 miles per hour, and not just that, this isn't some defunct plane that someone decided not to use.
