MAN - ANC (possibly you will have to go via JFK or somewhere in that region if you are carrying a full load of freight).

MAN - MEM (Memphis)
MAN - LGE (Liege)
MAN - OST (Ostend)
MAN - LUX (Luxembourg Findel)

All these would be places you could fly carrying freight. Not sure on many in russia but all these I have flown successfully!

Thanks Dave  Big thumbs up

Thanks LHRman, Is there any "schedule" to cargo flying, as in Passenger, or is it simply a case of "making it up" on FS2002.

You could try flying one of the real world cargo flights from MAN, such as the CX Cargo, Dragonair, Air Hong Kong, China Airlines Cargo and Cargolux. Incidently are Polar planning a return?

Cargo Flying is great! I mostly do Commercial but Cargo is starting to come up on my list. I do realistic flight like my next cargo flight takes off from MIA at 11:30pm to DEN in 747-200F. But it is great. what about MAN-MIA or MAN-Kiev MAN-ANC (Thats Long) MAN-NRT?
Cargo flights dont always takeoff at night just matters where the hub is. Many or most cargo flights take off at night because they had all the packages they need for sure. Also you dont have to worrie about hiting turbulance or making sharp turns in cruise since there are no pax.
