Heavy duty for Volga Dnepr

VOLGA-DNEPR Airlines has transported two Amdac Carmichael mobile fire fighting trucks from the UK to Kandahar in Afghanistan.
The 30 tonne cargo was carried from East Midlands Airport to Afghanistan’s second largest city located in the south of the country. Volga-Dnepr operated the IL-76TD-90VD freighter flight on behalf of freight forwarding customer, Transact International, which specialises in organising military and humanitarian aid shipments. 
Georgy Sokolov, Regional Sales Manager, Volga-Dnepr UK, said: “The payload required a detailed engineering study as the fire engines’ dimensions called for extremely precise loading into the cargo hold of the IL-76TD-90VD.”
