The world’s largest plane — the Antanov An-225 Mriya — landed at Israel’s Ben-Gurion International Airport on Monday, delivering a cargo of American military “Oshkosh” trucks that were to be fitted with a pair of Iron Dome aerial defense batteries purchased by the US Army.

The one-of-a-kind aircraft — built in the 1980s by the Soviet Union — previously visited Israel in 2008.
