“It is one of the biggest planes in the world,” said Veronika Ševčíková, spokesperson of the Bratislava airline, as quoted by the TASR newswire, adding that these planes do not land at the airport very often.
The most common cargo transported by the aircraft, nicknamed Jumbo Jet, are various automotive, aviation, air-conditioning and mobile phone components, Ševčíková added.
The Slovak Jumbo has a wingspan of 65 metres, is 71 metres long and 20 metres high and is powered by four General Eletric CF6-80 engines. It is one of the biggest aircraft which have landed at Bratislava airport, TASR wrote.
