Out at work with John Brindley Transport Ltd

Founded in 1927 by John Brindley Snr, and now with fourth generation family working within the groups’ businesses, Leicestershire based John Brindley Transport has nearly 100 years of experience in logistics, storage, servicing and hire. The company operates a varied fleet and like its FASSI crane prides itself on its versatility and flexibility in changing environments.
The company was recently involved in this interesting job to lift and transport a Hawker Hunter aircraft. The job itself involved dismantling the aircraft at RAF Scampton and then transporting the fuselage on the back of their tractor unit with FASSI crane to RAF Leeming.
The FASSI F820RA was used at both the collection and delivery point to remove the wings; load both trucks and then once transported reassemble the plane in the hangar in the reverse procedure ready for flight. The wings were kept in an upright position on an accompanying vehicle with flatbed trailer. The FASSI is the perfect partner for this kind of work with a combination of a lifting capacity of 3,655Kg at 16.5m and ‘mm’ precise control of movement from the Scanreco remote control.
The plane is still flying today and is in use regularly by various military contractors for testing purposes.
