When the Russian Antonov AN 225 “Mriya” came to Medford, Oregon to pick up two Sikorsky fire fighting helicopters to take over seas they received $1,000,000 to transport them!  While they are loading the helicopters, the Russia pilots (two crews), got a ride into town to buy cigarettes by the case and Levis jeans.
