More pictures of Polet Aviakompania (Polet Airlines) Antonov AN-124 RA-82077 at Rockhampton Airport Last Week
During the week we've received many contributions of photos of the Polet Aviakompania (Polet Airlines) Antonov AN-124, RA-82077, that was at Rockhampton Airport Last Week. Thanks to Don W, who managed to arrive just an the Antonov was extending its front cargo ramp.
We also thank Gordon C, who was lucky enough receive some photos from the other side of the fence - looking into the giant freighter after the first Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) Boeing AH-64D Apache was loaded - as well as a having a close up look at the M-230 E1 30mm gun, which is mounted beneath the front of the Apache.
The Antonov was fully loaded and the nose lowered by the early afternoon. This last picture was taken at about 4pm.
RA-82077 departed early Monday morning as POT4657 to Paya Lebar Airforce Base in Singapore.
