Turkish Cargo is today transporting a Ukrainian Sich-2-30 earth observation satellite from Ukraine to the US ahead of its launch.
The Ukrainian built satellite will be transported from Ukraine to Miami with a connecting flight in Istanbul.
The satellite, which has been developed as part of the National Targeted Scientific and Technical Space Program of Ukraine, will blast off at the launch area at the Kennedy Space Center in January 2022.
The satellite was dismantled into multiple components and placed carefully on two separate pallets together with the supplies in order to avoid any damage during the shipment.
The cargo was was loaded last in/first out.
