Wood you believe........

Palm trees from California, for a golf course under construction. The trees were transhipped in FCO, destination..........DXB. Evidently the local palms were the "wrong type."
IIRC there were three separate flights of 40t. each.

Flew a DC-3 charter from Dallas to Houston to carry a 727 radome from Houston to New Orleans. In that day the -3 was the only airplane available with a cargo door large enough to take it. It weighed maybe 10 kilos.

Had a similar one. Front section of an airbus engine cowl from Atlanta to Minneapolis. If I recall correctly, it was only 1500 lb, including the crate, which isn't much of a load for a Herc.
