A big plane for a big job

[ July 15, 2014   //   ]

The unique Antonov AN-225 – the world’s largest aircraft – came into its own in moving a 139-tonne heat exchanger from Germany to Canada on 25 June. The equipment with its specially-constructed load cradle and associated handling equipment actually topped out at 147 tonnes, much too heavy for any other aircraft. The charterer was the Karpeles Flight Services charter arm of DB Schenker and the flight was arranged, managed and operated by Antonov Airlines.
