An IL-76TD-90VD freighter owned by Volga-Dnepr Airlines delivered a 23-tonne generator rotor for power production from East Midlands Airport in the UK to Saint Johns, Canada. The single-piece shipment was loaded at East Midlands using the airline’s specialist loading equipment and a 50-tonne crane. In order to make the rotor secure for carriage, Volga-Dnepr worked with the shipper, Brush Electrical Machines (pictured), to design a suitable packing and stowage system because the existing skid under the rotor would not have been strong enough to resist the G-forces during the flight.
