Something You Don't See Everyday

As I was heading into work on Tuesday, I heard an unusual sound in the sky.  Of course I looked up and saw this.
It was an An-124 Ruslan (or Condor in NATO parlance).  It was flying out of Detroit Metro but I'm not sure what it was carrying.  Anyway, it was a pretty impressive looking aircraft.

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.
