Chapman Freeborn and Antonov team up

Chapman Freeborn Airchartering and Antonov Airlines have transported two outsize drill rigs from Houston, USA to an iron ore mine in the Pilbara region of Western Australia.

The two Pit Viper 271 rotary rig towers each measured 17 m in length, and weighed 21 tons (19.1 tonnes).

The components were flown from Houston to Perth onboard an AN-124-100 aircraft, chartered by Chapman Freeborn's US team.

In Houston, the loading process required the use of the AN-124's ramp apparatus in addition to two cranes - brought in to safely manoeuvre the outsize parts.
