Share this article

The Antonov An-225, the largest cargo aircraft in the world, will begin a week-long flight schedule from its home base in Ukraine to South America this Thursday. The aircraft will load cargo at Leipzig/Halle before flying across the Atlantic and down the east coast of North America on its way to Iquique, Chile. From there the aircraft will make its way to Campinas to load new cargo and offload in Santiago.

Tracking the An-225

Because the An-225 lacks an ADS-B transponder, we track it using MLAT. This means that the aircraft must remain covered by multiple receivers in order for us to track it. During its journey, it may pass through areas without MLAT coverage more than once. Coverage of the An-225 at low altitudes may also be intermittent due to the limitations of MLAT tracking. We are working to add additional receivers in multiple areas in order to better track the An-225 and other MLAT-only aircraft.

There are multiple ways to track the An-225 on Flightradar24.

  • ✈️  Registration: UR-82060
  • ✈️ Type: A225
  • ✈️ Callsign: ADB{XXXX}, where {XXXX} is the flight number listed in the schedule above.
