Russian spectacle

[ April 28, 2014   //   ]

Heavy haulier Van der Vlist recently delivered spare parts to the largest telescope in Europe, in Zelenchukskaya, southern Russia. The three German-made items were collected from St Petersburg port and moved 2,500 km south. Because of their size; up to 6.6m long and 4.3m wide, they required a police escort for the full journey.
