The AN-225 is Lee Elliot's pet, but remember that air-shows are very often
done with minimum fuel and no load. Heuristically, a lift factor of 2.0 is
perhaps too high for a plain aileron. 1.2 - 1.5 would be normal, and with
drag to match. But I agree that as it is the aircraft seems on the sluggish
