This is a span loader for standard shipping containers. At slow air speed, the cost per ton / mile is potentially competitive to the cost for container ship.

There are no documents to reference because this configuration and operation have no antecedents.Aircraft - Very Heavy Lift at Very Low CostStephen FunckConcordlift@mac.com ConcordLift.com
