FAA Proposes Penalty Against National Air Cargo Group

The $77,000 penalty is for failing to comply with requirements for loading and securing heavy cargo, according to the agency.

The Federal Aviation Administration has proposed a $77,000 penalty against National Air Cargo Group Inc. for allegedly failing to comply with requirements for loading and securing heavy cargo. 

The agency said that, in 2013, National Air Cargo failed to comply with Federal Aviation Regulations while loading heavy military vehicles onto two Boeing 747 jetliners that the company operated. The jets were flown on seven flights while loaded with one or more Mine Resistant Ambush Protected Vehicles (MRAPs).

The improper restraining affected the operation of the aircraft when one of the 747s crashed after takeoff from Bagram Airfield in Afghanistan while loaded with five MRAPs, killing its crew of seven and destroying the aircraft, according to the FAA.
