Antonov_AN-225_UR-82060_(9144582918)Flashback Friday: Our one-stop, one-click recap of the past week on Avgeekery.com.

If your week blurred by so fast you couldn’t spend time at Avgeekery.com (we forgive you) here’s a quick way to catch up. We’ve compiled all of our stories and videos from the past week. They’re all just a click away. Enjoy.

One of a kind: The Antonov An-225 is the world’s largest aircraft.

The FAA is requiring repairs to some models of engines on the Boeing 787s.

An analysis of Southwest Airlines as it continues to negotiate with its pilots in the midst of phasing out its 737-300 models.

Russian pilots like to get buzzed … and we’re not talking about downing shots of vodka.

The A-10 Warthog was basically designed as a flying platform for one of the most bad-ass guns in the U.S. military.

Those who help maintain the C-5 Galaxy have nicknamed the huge transport FRED. Click and read to find out why.

It’s indeed a liberating experience to watch and listen to a B-24 Liberator fire up its four radial engines.

Giving credit where credit is due – the Russians developed an effective VTOL aircraft – the Yak-141 –  but its development was thwarted by the breakup of the Soviet Union.

American Airlines continues to phase out of the MD-80, the aircraft which was the company’s workhorse in the 1980s.

A great idea that we hope survives and thrives: JetSuiteX offers the sweet promise of private jet services for the price of commercial flying.
