Volga-Dnepr Airlines has delivered two hydrant dispensers for aircraft refueling from Ankona in Italy to Nairobi, Kenya, onboard one of its IL-76TD-90VD freighters. Hydrant dispensers are mobile stations designed for aircraft refueling and each piece of equipment weighs some five tonnes and is over seven metres in length.

The loading operation was assisted by aircraft winches as the fuel hydrants were driven onto the aircraft under their own power. The delivery was on behalf of UK charter specialists, Chartersphere, a long-term partner of Volga-Dnepr.
