The Antonov 124 left Auckland (New Zealand) on the 2nd June at 5.00 BST and after a stop in Indonesia and Azerbaijan, touched down at 8.00 BST. Five trucks and over 40 people including airport staff, shore crew and police were on hand to unload the hull. A crane will now transport the boat from the airport to the training camp in Alicante where she will be fitted, ready for test sailing.
