As I was heading into work on Tuesday, I heard an unusual sound in the sky. Of course I looked up and saw this.
Development of the Condor started in the 1980's by the Antonov Design Bureau in the the Ukranian SSR (now the Ukraine). The An-124 is the largest military transport in the world.

I didn't really feel like doing much today. There wasn't a ton of traffic on the river and it was snowing. That didn't stop me from catching the Queen.
Every so often when I pass the St. Clair Power Plant during my travels to hunt down ships, I will pass one of the switcher engines at the St. Clair Power plant. Generally they are not in a position where I can catch them.
Technically, this is the second appearance of this ship but the first was a glimpse of her bow, so I'm not sure it really counts.
The next ship is new to this blog.
Shortly after the newest Algoma Equinox class boats passed by, I was greeted by the oldest of that class.
Back in 2013, we saw the introduction of the Algoma Equinox. She was the lead ship of an 8 ship class of ships that were to be built in China for the Algoma Central corporation. I was able to catch that ship as she worked her way up the lakes on her first cargo run.

Since I went to two different places, I figured I would grab two different pictures of the skyline.
I was up at the Troy office today and prior to leaving I took a look at Marine Traffic to see if there was anything passing while I'd be passing Detroit. It turns out that there was.
