Behind the Scenes – Loading an Antonov 124 with 800 CBM of PPE

May 19, 2020 | Urgent Response

This weekend saw another Antonov flight enroute to Canada from China via the Momentum Solutions team.

Momentum Solutions Urgent Response and Cargo Operations teams spent this weekend coordinating and overseeing the loading of another Antonov aircraft bound for Canada from Tianjin, China with personal protective equipment for the Canadian government. The Antonov 124 can carry up to 800 CBM and 85 tons.  In order to maximize the substantial cargo space available in the Antonov, the boxes are hand loaded by ground handling crews, a process which takes many hours and is often exhausting.  Special thanks to our team in TSN for capturing and sharing some of the behind the scenes photos and videos of all that is involved to load this big boy.
