Volga-Dnepr Russian IL-76 Charter Cargo Airline plane flight originated in the Netherlands and stopped in Gander, Newfoundland on the way down.

Probably Dutch Govt cargo/med supply shipment.

The Ukraine Antonov 124s have been very busy flying stuff out of China. Interesting to see where this big plans are going. Even the big 225 is flying and it rarely goes anywhere. https://flightaware.com/live/aircrafttype/A124

I read on another site, that a Russian plane landed on Saturday bringing medical supplies from Holland to fight the virus.

Judging by how big this thing is, I'll bet it will have to use every inch of the runway to get off the ground.

Getting off the ground, it presumably would be quite a bit lighter than when it landed though, no?

A second Volga-Dnepr IL-76 freighter landed this morning, coming from Maastricht by way of Gander. The first IL-76 has returned to Maastricht.

This is a monster, but not the IL76 that landed yesterday which is quite a bit smaller

The plane pictured and listed is not the plane that landed on SXM after Irma. The Russian cargo plane that landed after Irma was an Antonov AN-124-100M. The runway at PJIA(Sxm) is neither long enough or wide enough to support either the landing or takeoff of the Antonov AN-225.

AN--124 has 4 motors, AN-225 has 6 motors........124 on steroids.

I didn’t remember a 6 motor job landing at SXM. I think it brought a water plant?

I don't understand why the biggest cargo aircraft in the world would be needed to bring ventilators to an Island with 67 confirmed cases ...12 which have recovered and 10 have passed away. even including the surrounding islands it would be a stretch....and how many intensive care rooms are there on SXM to deal with all,these ventilators. That size plane could supply NYC plus NJ....

I would assume it's a major supply restock flight....of everything.

Only an opinion....

I am amazed that those islands together have the resources, medical personnel and ICU beds (and actual need) to utilize a huge cargo plane full of ventilators....but I will defer to boots on the ground

It was not full of ventilators, but much needed medical supplies. The one with ventilators and beds was here prior.

You would not believe how big that Ruskie aircraft is....I flew in a C5 Galaxy rescue mission from BOS to Frankfort en-route to Bam, Iran and that plane is freaking HUGE,,,just drive the Expedition in the front and have plenty of room around it,,,,,we couldn't use the C5 to Bam so went with a C141 but most of our personal stuff (all) had to be shipped out days later

...and the Ruskie plane is bigger than the C5

This isn't the biggest cargo aircraft in the world. That would be the Antonov AN-225.

I have been doing some digging but I can't find any firm information yet. Based on the last Volga-Dnepr Airline flight that left SXM on 4/18/2020, right now I'm going to guess that it will leave early in the morning around 6 am on Wednesday 4/22/2020.

There is no departure listed in Flightaware, which suggests that no Flight Plan has been filed. I would expect the flight to leave very early on Wednesday. One of the two return flights left at 06:08, and the other at 08:08.
