Who says pigs can’t fly?

By: | at 08:00 PM | Air Cargo  

One hundred and seventy-six pigs flew into Glasgow Prestwick this week, part of a shipment on board a Polar Air 747 freighter. They stopped over in Scotland en route from Ireland to the west coast of America where they will be used as breeding stock.

Freight Manager Paul Stonehouse said, “Yes, pigs do fly at Prestwick. From John Lennon’s Rolls Royce to horses, parrots, submersibles and REM’s stage gear, we handle an incredibly diverse range of freight.”
