AN-225 at Night

On March 26, 2003 the one and only world's largest aircraft arrived
at Mesa's Williams Gateway Airport (IWA).  It stopped by to
drop off an oversized transformer built for SRP (Salt River Project).
The aircraft was unloaded during the day on March 27, before
departing for Houston, TX (IAH) in the evening.
