An124 At Newcastle Today

Thu Oct 31, 2002 6:21 am

Today an Antonov Design Bureau An124 visited NCL. It arrived from PIK And departed to somewhere with freight. What I would like to know is where it flew to and what cargo it had onboard. Thanks  Big thumbs up

I heard that it left for Cape Town with a 60 ton (tonne?) crane on board.
How accurate this is, I don't know.
Can anybody else confirm or correct.

Saw it here in YQG (Windsor, Ontario, Canada) 6 days ago (Oct24), came in from HNL via ONT, left in a Westerly direction.

P.S. by PIK you mean Glasgow, right?

UR-82008 arrived at Ostend from Newcastle yesterday at 19.55 local time. Departed this morning (october 31) for Douala.

07:30 ADB5918 DOUALA

Don't know about the freight. Reason for the visit to Ostend was probably crew rest.

Je89_w, do they make any car parts in Hawaii?

Anyways, the stuff that the two 124's brought in from HNL was on regular wooden pallets, no more than 8' in height, and between 4'x4' and 6'x6' at base. Lifted by pretty small forklifts so it must be light. It was wrapped in plastic, and kind of looked like a bunch of relatively flat square things stacked on each other.  Confused
