The BAC111, that is the type of aircraft this is, does not have a huge cargo capacity. It is essentially an executive jet and we were told that it could not possibly carry any weapons. It could not be used for weapons transfers.

This is essentially how the cargo was transferred from Burkina Faso to Liberia.
