Due Saturday 22nd

Post by reaper493 » Wed Jun 19, 2019 9:17 am

With thanks to the WAVE on facebook, there is possibly an AN-124 due in this Saturday late morning.

No further details at this time.

yes I was told a few weeks ago that an AN-124 would be coming in instead of a C5 its bringing in a Sim as its to big for a C5, the C5 that came in before only bought in a smaller part to try before the main one arrives.

What!! the sim could not fit in a C5, I thought the C5 was about the same size as the AN-124!! I may sound a bit cynical, but with everybody at the Rwy 20 end it will land on 02!! as happened some years ago when a C5 came in.

AN -124 has payload 25 % higher than C5A and 10% more than C5B maybe that as something to do with it or why charter an AN-124 when a C5 will do the job availability permitting?

Which ever way it lands, it will be parking at the WAVE end to unload.

Wind favors 02 up until around 1030, then swings round to go directly across the runway.

If it was me, I'd land on 02, use the new 'under run' to run round and depart on 20.

Also, i think the cargo bay of the 124 is circa 20% larger than a C5.

The C5 has nothing to do with the SIM delivery. It was supporting US Army assets.
