An-26. Congolese refuelling

Recommended Posts

an-26 fuel capacity: 1,816 gallons

assuming 5 gallon bucket, that's 363.2 trips overall.

Video shows a total of 72 seconds. 12 seconds to walk up the stairs, assuming another 10 seconds before the bucket is empty plus another 6 to walk down with empty bucket. So 94 seconds total.


94 x 363.2 = 34,140 seconds for a full fillup.


or 569 minutes, or 9.48 hours. It could only be better assuming they weren't going from empty to full.
