"The professionalism of the Antonov airline's technical team is a guarantee of safe and efficient transportation of this delicate and unique cargo," said Sergey Belozerov, specialist in the company's commercial department. “For loading and unloading, together with an onboard crane, an external crane was used, as well as other special equipment developed and manufactured by specialists of Antonov State Enterprise.
