Ruslan’s ‘reelly’ urgent cargo

Ruslan International has moved 75 tonnes of urgent oil and gas industry coil-tubing equipment from London Stansted to Adelaide by AN-124.
The company, which manages 17 giant AN-124 freighter aircraft for its partners Antonov Airlines and Volga Dnepr Group, undertook the charter to support a drilling programme in the Coober Pedy Basin of South Australia.
The largest item in the consignment – a reel weighing 38 tonnes and measuring 3.95 m high – was too large to fit into any other aircraft type. The 17,000 km flight was completed in 58 hours, and involved stops in Baku, Karachi, Kuala Lumpur and Darwin.
All operations at origin and destination were overseen by specialist staff of charterer Airland Logistics, which has offices in Europe and Australia, as well as South Africa and Canada.
