Antonov 124 visits Adelaide
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!
