2 of 3 former Jade Cargo's frame have been sold to SF Airlines. These frames after storage since 2011 aren't in good shape and will require a lot of work to make them airworthy again, but it's certainly good news.

L/N 1292, 747-430, A4O-OMN (ex. D-ARFO), Oman Royal Flight just received maintenance at Lufthansa Technik, Hamburg

Was this maintenance necessary because L/N 1466, 747-8H0, A4O-HMS is still at L3 Platform Integration at Waco, TX ? (VIP modification is delayed following identification of quality problems)



A4O-OMN, November 17th 2017, EDDH
