The arrival of the world's third largest model of cargo aircraft remains scheduled for 11 a.m. today, Prince George Airport Authority spokeswoman Lindsay Cotter said Thursday.
A Russian-made Antonov-124 will touch down to pick up seven helicopters to fly to Angola where the choppers will be used to transport officials to outlying area's during the country's national election at the end of August.
The plane's arrival is expected to draw a large number of aviation enthusiasts and RCMP will be out controlling traffic on the Old Cariboo Highway and local roads.
The public is asked to park at the baseball diamonds off of Old Cariboo Highway to help lower congestion, Cotter said. She also urged people to carpool.
