I'm trying to help someone out. They're looking to move a 24,000# about 20' big from SC to Alaska. What charter outfits fly something big enough and has capacity?
I suggested atlas, but evidently they don't have capacity till after Jan 1 and it needs to go now.

Try Lynden Air Cargo (ANC) They fly oddball cargo all the time with their Hercs.

Kalitta Air, SkyLease Cargo, Western Global, Southern Air, National Airlines, Air21. All big jet adhoc operators. I'm sure there are others.

Maybe National or Lynden Air Cargo. There's also Centurion and SkyLease. I think those guys are still around.

Everts MD-80 is down south flying Adhoc. Give them a shout. NAC should be too, but I'm not sure of the door dimensions. Maybe even send a message to Packrat.

Everts Air Cargo...

Youíll not find a better owner to work for, who also, by the way will strap a DC-6 to his back to move cargo in -50 degree weather too.

If those are the correct dims you're going to have a problem in any narrow body. While normal pallets are 125x96 or 125x88 the curvature of the fuselage limits the height in a 727 or 737. Eighty wide and eighty high won't fit. Been a long time since I pushed pallets but it was something like 79x78 or 78x79 was the max in a single isle Boeing. Nines are even smaller.

And really everyone is going to be booked for peak season flying. FedEx and UPS suck up all the lift they can get in December.
