Flying boat

[ September 2, 2014   //   ]


Volga-Dnepr has moved a 15-metre, 24-ton ‘Cigarette Marauder’ power boat from Doha to Nice on board one of its IL-76 freighter flights. The boat (the name is presumably a reference to its shape and not a suggestion that it will be used for trans-med smuggling operations) needed a special loading solution because of its length, weight and low ground clearance. The flight was operated on behalf of Volga-Dnepr’s longstanding charter partner Air Partner.
