KM Aviation was contracted for the airfreight from Liege, Belgium, to Johannesburg. The A 109E will be operated for offshore- and SAR missions in South Africa.

With the tailboom and M/R blades removed, the helicopter fitted carefully through the 747 cargo door with only some cm gaps. The success of this project was a perfect and flexible cooperation between the cargo agent CoastAir, Ethiopian Airlines and KM Aviation. Many thanks to all helping hands.
