I would have thought there would be at least 2 years worth of requirement for a 2nd AN225. The world needs cargo lift now, not just to supply/feed COVID-19 medical supplies, but the normal cargo world goes on. I appreciate the huge costs involved in getting the 2nd aircraft up and running, as well as Antonov finding enough crew to cover a 2nd aircraft, but I wonder if in the back of some of the wooden clad walls of the Design Bureau, the senior members are evaluating it.
