Three of World’s Largest Planes Land in Edmonton
In June 2020, three of the world’s largest planes – two AN-100s and an AN-124 – landed at Edmonton International Airport in the same week to deliver goods and supplies.
Here is one of the planes coming in for a landing on runway 02 during a sunset.
We managed to capture one of the AN-100s landing at the airport, and later spotted it on the apron with another AN-100 already parked.
Below is a separate AN-100 which had landed at the YEG earlier the same week.
If you’re looking for a place to plane-spot at the Edmonton International Airport, head south on 31 Street East (JetSet Parking exit) and take a right just south of 24 Avenue East. From there you will head back towards the apron where you will be able to view airplanes from a hilltop. We’ve marked the location on the map here.
From the vantage point, we were able to see a Westjet plane with Disney’s Frozen-themed livery.
Happy plane spotting!
