The Giant An-124 Departs Tomorrow, Prepare For An Interesting Dynamic Display

21.09.2013, 19:00

We have just received new organization information about departure of the giant An-124-100 Ruslan transport aircraft. It is going to take off after the programme finishes; therefore you will be able to enjoy a unique dynamic display of its pre-flight preparation.

 “The Ruslan aircraft is going to take off yesterday after the programme ends. Therefore the dynamic displays of loading and off-loading of the airplane with Pandur II armoured transporter are going to be moved a bit. They are going to take place at 10:00-10:30 and 12:00-12:30. Today they were met with huge interest of the visitors, so we believe they will be met with it tomorrow as well,” Zbyněk Pavlačík, the chairman of the Jagello 2000 Association, which is the main organizer of the event, says.

“Only half an hour after the second dynamic display at Ruslan, at 13:00, it is necessary to vacate the area around it. The aircraft needs to start its pre-flight preparations; therefore it has to be moved, which is an interesting display by itself. We kindly ask everyone for cooperation with the organizers and to vacate the area around the airplane,” Pavlačík adds.

The Ruslan’s take off is preliminarily planned for 17:30. The area is going to be closed at 17:00 due to necessity of departure of static display vehicles, cleaning of the area, etc. The area is not lighted and many works are not possible to be done after it gets dark. “We greatly thank you for your visit and respecting the organizers’ instructions. It was not easy to get Ruslan to come to the event, we will be therefore glad if there are no problems with its departure. We believe that even the preparations of its departure will be attractive for you, because it is not possible to see them anywhere else,” Pavlačík notes.
