I liked how the fork lift couldn't get up the ramp without a running start.
At the speed they were moving boxes, it will be Orthodox Christmas before they get the plane unloaded.
Even running the video at 2x dead fly's move faster than those guys.
That first forklift driver acted like he was afraid of driving
I'm sure the cargo was loaded in haste as well.
in the video all we got to see was the beginning of the learning curve for an unloading process with only a few labors to start unloading. None of whom are accustomed to seeing a plane loaded in such a manor.
Had this same load arrived at some country where the use of hand labor is a common occurrence once the process of unloading had begun it would have looked like a colony of carpenter ants had descended on it with hundreds of able bodied persons filing in and out in droves. Virtual bucket brigades may have been formed to hand off carton after carton. As more room inside the plane would be created pallets would be carried in loaded wrapped and transported out in a timely manor but first they had to go through a learning curve which to those of us who may have witnessed or been part of something of a similar circumstance we only see the amount of wasted time and manpower.
We used to receive 45 ft containers all the time at the company I was with in Q8 loaded wall to wall floor to ceiling front to back with cartons ranging from a couple kg. to 15 or 20 kg many not much larger that 200 mm cubed or as large as 400 mm cubed. We would have 40 to 50 guys start unloading sorting and palletizing the cartons then once the process had taken on a systematic rhythm I would estimate how long it might take to get the container emptied cut the time by 1/3 and tell the guys there would be a party if they hit my target time with everything properly sorted and palletized.
I gave lots of appreciation parties through the years over there.
