Shipment to Russia (part 3)

Early in the morning of Tuesday 20 May, during a very specific time-slot, the ISL-shipment, consisting of the transport cases with CubeSats-in-their-QuadPack and related GSE, was granted access to air-side of the Czech airport.

Together with the shipment of another satellite (and its GSE), everything was loaded on the charter airplane which later that day departed to Ul’yanosvk, where it safely arrived during the night.

On Wednesday 21 May the whole shipment on board this chartered airplane was cleared by Russian Customs and departed to Orsk. There the shipment will be off-loaded and transported to Yasny launch base.
