    dunno, perhaps due to maintenance.. It looks like some kind of plant or something..

    Actually if the ramp has a slight slope its easy to push large aircraft, even the one the size of the An-124 with just several guys - the hard point is not getting it so fast that you can't stop it. Usually there will be someone off to the side by the MLG ready to throw a chock under a wheel should the aircraft start rolling too fast.

    Yeah, doesn't look like they're straining too much!

    Sure there isn't something pulling it from behind those trees? Looks like the blokes are only steering it..
