This new one is about NESA's new plane.  NESA gave its old Fairchild to an airplane museum and bought a new Airbus" Guppy" for the transport of rocket parts.

These rocket parts are made in the former Fokker factories in Amsterdam and are then transported to Schiphol airport from where the Airbus brings them
to the former Dutch colony of Suriname where the NESA launchbase is supposed to be.

Because the earth rotation is faster there than at the ESA launch base, Nesa gains every launch a few free kilograms more.
