This week Martinair will fly the last two B744 freighters to Arizona for s[Mod - lovely stuff]ping.

We will recreate this sad moment by performing these 's[Mod - lovely stuff]flights' from Amsterdam(EHAM) to Tuscon(KTUS).

All pilots are invited to fly along and say goodbye to the last B744 freighters in Martinair colors.

The more the merrier

 

BTW: KTUS is not the final destination

After a small break we depart from Tuscon (KTUS) to the final resting place for these birds at Pinal Airpark(KMZJ)

So if you can't make the long trip, join us from KTUS to KMZJ (ete 20 minutes.)

Uh,those 744's are(or were) going for storage,aren(weren)'t they ..

and even more,I believe they've been there

for a while already if I'm not mistaken.

Supposedly MP struck a deal with the lessor.

 

MP is now flying the ERF's KL cannot find work for,iirc,

and the 744BCF's are parked in Arizona desert until such time MP thinks

they can be operated again.

 

Also lots of talk about MP taking over KL's freightroutes altogether

after having been taken over by KL.

I.E Klm would handle the pax and MP would do the freight,

whilst possibly keeping the paxruns they do already.

 

cheers

The term s[Mod - lovely stuff]flight I used is not the correct term. The aircraft were leased by Martinair and will be returned to the owner/leasecompany. Martinair will start flying KLM cargo routes (and some Air France) with the ERF's owned by KLM.

If I'm not mistaken they will also start service to Nairobi with the B763 (pax) besides the other pax routes to the americas.
