Antonov spreads its wings

[ December 2, 2013   //   ]

A Volga-Dnepr Airlines’ An-124-100 ‘Ruslan’ freighter landed in the Russian city of Salekhard for the first time in late November, delivering a 26-tonne turbine for the local power plant.

The airline and its customer UTair Cargo JSC had to obtain special permission to land at Salekhard and the airport needed to conform to special requirements, including fire and safety precautions.
