Boats fly with Volga Dnepr

February 28 - Volga Dnepr Airlines has shipped two cutter vessels from Aqaba, Jordan, to Dar es Salaam, Tanzania on board one of its AN124-100 freighters.

Each vessel weighed 14 tons (12.7 tonnes) and measured 14 m in length and four metres tall.
 
Due to the large size of the vessels, standard cranes were not suitable for the loading process. Instead, a rail system was engineered to safely place the boats into the AN124-100's cargo hold.
 
The Tanzania charter was on behalf of air charter broker Chapman Freeborn.
