VARs are used by HP, Oracle, IBM and loads of others so any VAR deal is a side deal.
You also can't sell into Middle East without a local bri.... VAR merchant and loads of other places make it really hard if you don't have a local agent (bribe agent).
Looking at his particular deal, it looks like the customer wanted it in before they could get the money signed off (via board meeting) so VAR stepped in to take the risk and maybe make sales look at little nice; this is more likely to be hitting bonus targets than actually pumping up the value of the company.
Freight planes have crashed before due to loading issues, where cargo is loaded in the incorrect manner and the flight crew sign off on the wrong configuration which is needed for setting the trim. Alternative is the load was not secured correctly cause a shift in weight.
What ever it was its likely a short and terrifying flight, expect to see this on Aircraft Investigates in a couple of years.
I still have it, £699 I remember bought for the wife who hated it, she loved the £80 kindle fire I bought her a few years later. It still works perfectly, long battery life, but there are ZERO apps that I can install from the AppStore so its effectually useless.
