For airliners members eager to catch a glimpse of the world's largest
aircraft: Press release from Ford mentions that two Antonov AN 124
aircraft will be landing at Windsor Airport (Ontario, Canada) Tuesday,
April 22 at 7:45 AM, and again Wednesday, April 23.

Purpose of the landings are to deliver a new transfer machine used for
machining engine blocks at Ford's Windsor engine plant.

Humorous note: after mentioning the AN 124 is "the world's largest
aircraft," the press release goes on to say they are "the largest to
land at Windsor in the 69-year history of Windsor Airport." No, really?
