The German army is transporting equipment back from its mission in Afghanistan through Leipzig/Halle Airport, starting on 18 May with two helicopters on board an Antonov Airlines 124 cargo plane. The aircraft were being unloaded by handler PortGround, a subsidiary of Mitteldeutsche Flughafen. The Ukrainian airline has had two 124-100s permanently stationed at Leipzig/Halle as part of the SALIS project (Strategic Airlift International Solution) since March 2006.
