Cargo Air Charter

Antonov AN-124 charter featured in Discovery Channel documentary

If you’re a fan of the Discovery Channel you may have seen one of Chapman Freeborn’s charters featured in the Mighty Planes documentary about the AN-124 aircraft – part of a series airing at the moment in several regions.

The film follows an AN-124 charter project we arranged with the international logistics service provider Logwin to fly an industrial rotor and associated equipment weighing a total of 97 tons from Düsseldorf to Santiago de Chile.

The entire charter flight from loading in Düsseldorf to unloading in Santiago de Chile was accompanied by a camera team making a series about aircraft in various areas of deployment. Viewers are given an insight in to the inner workings of aviation and will be able to experience how extraordinary airlift projects are executed.

The giant Antonov AN-124 was originally built to move Soviet military vehicles and equipment but it’s now in constant demand moving heavy and outsize commercial cargo around the world.
