Giant An-225 carries 139 tonne heat exchanger

The unique Antonov AN-225 - the world’s largest aircraft transports heat exchanger weighing 139 tonnes from Germany to Canada The unique Antonov AN-225 - the world’s largest aircraft - has once again proven its vital role in air transportation, with the carriage of a huge heat exchanger weighing 139 tonnes from Germany to Canada. The equipment which, with its specially-constructed load cradle and associated handling equipment weighed a total of 147 tonnes, was much too heavy for any other aircraft. The load was flown from Leipzig to Edmonton via Keflavik (Iceland) and Goose Bay: a total distance of 8,400 km. The charterer was the Karpeles Flight Services GmbH charter arm of DB Schenker.
