A huge crane was used to lift the machinery which was to be carried to North America for an international fair.
The aircraft had to be balanced in order to assure a smooth loading.
The huge machinery was first delicately brought on metallic tracks before being loaded inside the aircraft.
The steps leading to the cockpit were removed in order to give room to the cargo. The margin was only of about ten centimeters...
