Instead, the data was stored on hundreds of hard drives that were flown to a central processing centres in Boston, US, and Bonn, Germany, to assemble the information. Prof Doeleman described the achievement as "an extraordinary scientific feat".

that putting a bunch of HDs on a plane is not really that impressive. Why, I could do it myself.Nothing was said anywhere about the drives being put on a plane.
