November 1 - A Volga-Dnepr Airlines IL-76TD-90VD freighter has delivered diesel generators weighing over 35 tonnes from East Midlands Airport in the UK to Bagram, Afghanistan.

The oversized power generators, designed and manufactured by Dale Power Solutions, were placed in special shipping containers and rolled into the cargo cabin directly from the airside tarmac using a wheeled loading system designed by Volga-Dnepr that eliminates the need for third-party loading equipment.

The flight to Afghanistan was operated for Transact International, a company providing specialist logistics solutions for military and humanitarian cargo. Transact has previously worked with Volga-Dnepr to transport fire fighting trucks, weighing 30 tonnes.
