Elvis And The Two Sisters......

Fri Jan 04, 2002 9:26 am

On the news here in Sydney, two Erickson Skycranes are about to be sent over from the US to assist the one presently here (nicknamed elvis) in fighting the raging brushfires threatening the state of New South Wales.
The news said they were being transported here by an Antonov aircraft.

Does anyone know when they will arrive and which kind of Antonov it will be??

many thanks,

qforever.

The only airplanes, besides a C-5, that could carry two S-64s are the An-124 and An-225. I'd bet on the 124 though.
