MK Airlines was formed in 1990 to provide cost effective and reliable air cargo capacity to the world cargo industry. MK operates a fleet of Boeing 747 and Douglas DC8 Freighter aircraft to destinations all around the world including many exotic locations. This program is a wonderful and unique opportunity to join the crew of a "mighty" DC8 as they ferry an aircraft from Manston to the United Arab Emirates in order to transport close to four dozen horses to Ireland. You will witness the entire aircraft operation with explanations from the crew as well as see the special requirements for transporting horses. It is followed by a flight on the B747 from Luxembourg to East Africa with stopovers in Bishkek and Dubai before returning to Manston with full presentations by the crew.
