I received this off of the NCAC-L list, and thought some of you might
want to lend a hand...It's a bit hard to read, but basically a Russian
An-124 Condor cargo plane crashed into a five-story apartment building
in the city of Irkutsk-2 back in early-December. You can read the rest
of what's happened since. The An-124 is the second largest cargo plane
in the world (the biggest being the An-225 Cossack; third largest is the
U.S. C-5 Galaxy).
