Today Orka Morgan was flown to Tenerife, I assume from Amsterdam.
Morgan was found in the Dutch waddenzee in 2010, very weak, and too young to survive alone. The last one and a half year it regained strength and grew up in a Dolfinarium in The Netherlands.
In Tenerife it will have more personal space as the Dolfinarium in Harderwijk was designed for .... Dolphins, and not large Orkas.
Does anyone know what airline it transported, and how a transport like this takes place? Media reports that there was at least one person with the Orka at all time.

Kuzu Air Cargo, with an A310F.
I didn't see the Orka as i passed by but would imagine it being carried in some sort of tank construction. Having someone tend to the animal the entire way would be quite normal. We see it all the time with the transport of bigger animals.
I believe in coincidences. Coincidences happen every day. But I don't trust coincidences.

Quoting BrouAviation (Reply 11): What is your problem? It was a serious question. Not that Beluga (whats in a name) ever would be used for this kind of projects, but it was something I didn't know for sure and asked for confirmation.
I think he was trying to make a joke. Beluga whale in a Beluga plane lol
