Urgent rotor flies transatlantic

May 15 - Chapman Freeborn Airchartering and Volga-Dnepr Airlines have worked together to deliver a time-critical outsize rotor from Switzerland to Brazil onboard an IL-76TD-90VD aircraft.

The 28-tonne rotor was flown from Zurich to Salvador onboard the aircraft, which was chartered by Chapman Freeborn on behalf of a client in the oil and gas industry. The cargo was needed to keep a key oil facility open, with the plant facing closure until the replacement part could be delivered.

Chapman Freeborn's Sao Paulo office coordinated the operation, which required special exemptions to allow for Customs clearance during the weekend.

Assisted by Chapman Freeborn and Volga-Dnepr's loadmasters, the oversize equipment was loaded into the freighter using a 100-tonne capacity crane that had been hired in especially for the project.
