Back in the Air—Tracking the Antonov An-22’s First Commercial Flight in Over 7 Years

Image

This weekend the world’s largest turboprop aircraft, the Antonov An-22, returns to commercial service after sitting on the ground for 7 years. The An-22 has been chartered by DB Schenker’s subsidiary Karpeles Flight Services to carry a single 28-tonne piece of cargo from Zurich to Abu Dhabi. We have included a photo tour of the An-22 and the schedule for this weekend’s flights below. As with all cargo operations, the posted schedule is subject to change.

In addition to the 28-tonne cargo, a much smaller cargo of 10 GoPro cameras will be recording the flight for Air-Clips.com. The video from all flights this weekend should be available 2-3 weeks after the flights.

More details and pictures of the refurbishment here.
