The Antonov An-124 Ruslan (NATO reporting name: Condor) was the largest aircraft ever mass produced (until production of the Airbus A380), and was, until the advent of the An-225 Mriya, the largest aircraft in production. During development it was known as the An-400 and An-40 in the West, and it flew for the first time in 1982. Over forty are currently in service (26 civilian models with airlines and 10 firm orders at August 2006)[1] in Russia, Ukraine, UAE and Libya. [Wikipedia]

Last time I checked, the cargo hold of an AN-124 is un-pressurized, I suppose this solved a number of design / maintenance issues, but I'm sure that's really inconvenient for the loadmaster. There is a ceiling mounted wench / crane that runs the center-line.

Of course there is a specially designed sub-zero temperature refrigerator for the storage of a case of quality vodka and assorted accouterments.
