If it looks massive, that's because it is. The above picture shared by the airport on Instagram shows a 6-foot-1-inch employee underneath it. (You'll need to zoom in.) 

It's a strategic airlift jet aircraft that's about 226 feet long with a 240 foot wingspan. In comparison, a Boeing 757 -- which is typically used for commercial flights -- is 155 feet long with a wingspan of 124 feet. 

According to Aerospace Technology, it was designed by the Antonov ASTC in Kiev, Ukraine. 

The aircraft is designed for long-range delivery and air dropping heavy and large-size cargo like machines, equipment and troops.
