In 2019 the An225’s smaller sister the AN-124 performed a spectacular take-off from Adelaide Airport in very strong crosswinds.
As the AN124, lifts off you can see the wind from the west push the aircraft off the centreline before the pilot kicks in rudder to counter the impact and get the aircraft back on track.
