Gebrüder Weiss puts second heavy load on AN-124
Last Friday (9 August), Zurich airport in Switzerland was the scene of an impressive heavy load project. The second largest cargo plane in the world, the Antonov 124, was loaded with a steel tank weighing 70.5 t in all. The more than 13 m long tank had been manufactured in Italy and had to be flown to Houston TX (USA), where it will go into action in a waste incineration plant. The project was planned and successfully executed by the transport and logistics provider Gebrüder Weiss. Two weeks before, a first identical tank had already been shipped the same way.
