I do recall an incident ex ADL where 5000kgs of through cargo ex SYD to PER was reported as 500kg and a 727-276 took far to much runway to get airborne and flew like a brick.

So much for "automated" load control.

It's only as good as the fully trained hands at the gate (small port mentality here) and the vigilance of the loco and bag snatchers.

Yep - I'm a dinosaur.

Best all
