GUWAHATI: The world largest Civilian transport aircraft ANTONOV (AN124) landed at Kolkata on Wednesday night carrying a 59,000 Kg payload for Baghjan-5 for the snubbing operation from Calgary, Canada.
The massive aircraft landed last night at Kolkata as both Guwahati and Dibrugarh airport runway cannot handle the Ukranian aircraft, which is used worldwide for its long haul cargo dropping.
According to the OIL sources, the aircraft was commissioned by Piston Well Service Inc of Canada which was hired by Alert Disaster Control, Singapore. The Alert has been commissioned by OIL for killing the Baghjan-5 well, which was burning since May 27 of this year.
