70 airport operators from across Australia and New Zealand have come together to promote the Inaugural Airport Safety Week. The Australian Airport Association has produced a video to promote the importance of airport safety. The video gets the message across in a fun way and presents the concept that everyone can be involved with airport safety.
On 26/8/14 an Antonov 124 visted Adelaide to deliver 84 tonnes of mining equipment. It arrived around 3.30pm and deprted the next day at 6.50am. On arrival both ends of the plane were opened up and a ramp had to be assembled from the front to offload some of the cargo.
5DME have heard that many people arrived the next day to see the huge aircraft depart however, a mistake in the departure time by main stream media left everyone disappointed.
Just so those who went to take a look don’t miss out, here is a short video that the 5DME.NET crew shot when the aircraft arrived…. These are truly huge machines and one cannot fail to be impressed when up close!
NOTE: This is unedited video and does have a few repo knocks. You can see the completed version in the next episode of AVIATION NOW.
