With the full Inmarsat-5 F1 team gathered in Baikonur, they headed to Yubileiny Airfield to meet the Antonov-124 that was delivering the Inmarsat-5 F1 spacecraft.  Just like commercial flights, the Antonov-124 can also experience weather delays, as was the case today due to rough weather over Canada and Iceland.  After touchdown the SC in its container was slowly and precisely maneuvered to the railcar for its journey to hall 92A-50 and arrived at approximately 00h30 on 12 Nov.
