A TikTok video capturing the passage of a massive plane over Attiki Odos, crossing a bridge en route to "Eleftherios Venizelos" airport, has generated numerous comments and awe-inspiring reactions.
According to airport sources, the aircraft in question is an American C-5 Galaxy transporter, and it is reported that arrivals of this aircraft type are quite frequent at "El. Venizelos".
These particular aircraft land at "Eleftherios Venizelos" airport for various reasons, including refueling, technical purposes, and participation in NATO exercises, as stated by the same airport sources.
The officials at Athens International Airport highlighted that the bridge, on which the American carrier traversed, was constructed to meet all necessary specifications, enabling it to accommodate even Antonov aircraft.
The C-5 Galaxy, manufactured by Lockheed, is renowned as one of the largest military aircraft globally, reflecting its impressive size and capabilities.
