A380 vs 747 vs Spruce Goose

I've always wondered how the 747 and the A380 look next to each other. Does a photograph with the two giants exist? Maybe a rendering with the two versus the Spruce Goose?

Would've been cool to see the C-5 in that graphic too, but still way cool.

^^^I wondered about that too. How would large military transports fit into that diagram?

the An-225 is the biggest military transport out there. The C-5 is slightly smaller while a c-130 would be completely dwarfed.

Thanks! I wasn't sure what the An-225 was exactly, but assumed it was Russian and possibly a transport.

It's a, now Ukrainian, Soviet transporter built for their space shuttle program. It has carried the only Buran built on its back. iirc there's a couple more An.225 airframes from the 80s that might be completed now that the profits are going ok. Tho that was before the current hike in oil-prices.

does the an-225 still hold the record for the greatest lifting capacity of any aircraft ever built, or has the A380 taken that title away?

Like Urb said, it does and it's still the largest airplane in the world by a long shot. I have heard the second AN-225 is only a few months away from test flights.

Can anyone confirm that???
