The Antonov An-124 this week, flew from Accra, Ghana, to Mumbai, India, and back again.
The specialized freighter carried an oversized power generator which required urgent repairs.
An-124, which has a payload capacity of 150 tonnes, thus was more than enough to carry the 54-tonne generator.
However, fitting the 10.5m long, 3.89m wide, and 4.13m high item required experts to be onboard for loading and unloading. The flight flew from Accra to Mumbai and then back once the repairs were complete.
This was one of the memorable journeys of AN -124.
