N612UP delivery flight UPS/5X9105 towards Louisville (KSDF) at September 6th, see:
https://flightaware.com/live/flight/...921Z/KPAE/KSDF

N612UP, awaiting line up, KPAE, September 6th 2018. How ironic, Look for the registation of the landing FedEx Caravan.



Very nice shot !, uploaded by Jennifer Schuld at twitter, see : https://twitter.com/JenSchuld/status...82730082140160

Probably not. I don't think they orders 747-8F. Only UPS has already order the 747-8F.

Right! They already have. They do have more 777F on orders. I think they are doing just fine.

The second 747-8/BBJ completion has been confirmed by AMAC and will be ready in Q2 2020, see pdf page 3/8 : https://www.amacaerospace.com/wp-con...urbishment.pdf

The 747-8i was inducted in AMAC’s Basel completion center in February for the 20-month project, the company’s second 747-8i completion, and will feature “a unique design,” said AMAC CEO Kadri Muhiddin at EBACE 2018. Company engineers will install an overhead Aeroloft in the widebody for the undisclosed repeat customer.
