Ruslan International, which manages and markets the combined Antonov An-124 fleets of its shareholders Antonov Airlines and Volga Dnepr Airlines has moved a 101-tonne oil platform component from Bergen (Norway) to Busan (Korea) on an An-124 flight. The load together with its two support frames and other loading equipment actually weighed 114 tonnes close to the aircraft’s capacity for the route. The offset centre of gravity also required special approval from the aircraft’s designers, Antonov Design Bureau.
