Last night I drove past Boeing and the paint hanger 45-01 was open. They are getting ready to move LN1526 Atlas Air out. It no longer has a blue rudder. The entire plane is white as was indicated on the paint schedule. Should roll out today.

Indeed - The Boeing ACT shows it going to Atlas and the paint schedule showed white as the color. I waited forever for them to roll it out and they didn't before I had to get some sleep.

They are probably going to use it for US Army charter flights. They said in press release that they would use in in ACMI services.

Quote:
Based on the improved airfreight environment and customer demand, Atlas Air Worldwide has agreed to acquire a new 747-8 freighter from Boeing with delivery scheduled for November 2015. Prior to its expected placement in longer-term ACMI (aircraft, crew, maintenance and insurance) service, the company intends to deploy the aircraft in profitable charter operations, taking advantage of the aircraft's superior fuel efficiency, range, capacity and loading capabilities.

So it apparently won't be until 2023 when the new Air Force One Boeing 747-8 becomes operational:

Air Force One, a Cherished Perk Awaiting an Upgrade



By PETER BAKER
OCT. 18, 2015


Quote:
The Defense Department hopes to sign an initial contract with Boeing in the coming weeks to begin the long process of assembling a new presidential aircraft capable of ferrying the Commander-in-Chief around the world with the capacity to run a war from midair if necessary. Built on the frame of a Boeing 747-8, it will be bigger, more powerful, able to fly farther and vastly more advanced technologically than the current customized Boeing 747-200B jumbo jet.

Mr. Obama himself will not benefit from the trade-in. By some estimates, the new plane may not be available until 2023, when Hillary Rodham Clinton or Donald J. Trump or whoever beats them may be close to finishing up a second term. And it will not be cheap. The Air Force has asked for $102 million in the coming fiscal year and $3 billion over the next five years, not counting any further cost.

“It’s way overdue,” said Joseph W. Hagin, a White House deputy chief of staff under President George W. Bush who initiated plans for a new plane only to see them shelved when the nation’s finances grew precarious. “You can hang new engines on it, you can cram all sorts of new technology on it, but it’s still a very old airplane.”
Quote:
The Air Force selected Boeing as the maker of the next plane earlier this year. The 747-8 that will serve as the frame is 250 feet long with a range of nearly 7,800 miles and 66,500 pounds of engine thrust. Once modified, it will be capable of midair refueling, hardened against the electromagnetic pulse of a nuclear explosion and almost certainly equipped with defenses to deflect heat-seeking missiles.

This sort of project has a way of ballooning in cost. A project to build a new Marine One helicopter got so out of control that Mr. Obama’s administration canceled it after taking office and a new contract has now been issued.

“We hope that doesn’t happen with the plane, that they’ve learned their lesson,” said Thomas A. Schatz, the president of Citizens Against Government Waste, a group that criticized the Marine One project.

As it is, given the reported $180,000-an-hour flying cost, presidents are often criticized for using Air Force One for their political or personal purposes. But so far, members of both parties seem to be going along with plans for a new plane. After all, no one knows which side will have the White House when it becomes available for use.

Engines of the B747-8i. Sounds like the 747-400 Engines.

Transaero Airlines will stop. Probably the removal of the airline.

This scenario reminds me to the demise of Ansett Australia. Back then Ansett was the second largest airline behind Qantas.

Looks like, if I time it right, I may be able to see the inaugural flight of Korean Air's B747-8 to San Francisco this coming Sunday. How many B747-8s are now with KE so that I can monitor which aircraft it will deploy to SFO?

What is currently the longest non-stop route served by Boeing 747-8i?

Just a wild guess, I think it's LH's FRA-LAX.

I just read somewhere that Aeroflot will be getting 4 of Transaero's 747. I just hope it's the four 747-8
