Hey guys.. I just got back from a pretty exhausting Thanksgiving trip (more details to follow later in a trip report). Anyway.. while we were on a quick taxi out of SEA, I was lucky I had my digital camera out and prepped and I happened to catch this bare metal 767 at the north end (cargo area) of the SEA ramp (Pictures taken out the window 16F on an AS MD-80). I can't seem to recognize this once green & yellow (?) bird. I was wondering if any of you can identify which carrier previously operated this a/c, and who is operating it now?

Thanks guys!
Steve

Well, to me it looks like a 767-200. Going off the tail, i'm thinking it is an ex-EVA Air bird:

Quoting Clickhappy (Reply 2):

That's what I was thinking. Given it's spot on the ramp, it's livery stripped off, and the fact that it looks to be hollow inside. So why haven't they plugged the windows yet?

Any idea who operated it before Airborne Express?

Thanks Royal!
Steve

Hi Steve

I checked in the most recent fleet guide. Its an American Reg on the tail. As Clickhappy says its an ABX Air. It could be an ex JA fleet.

Sorry, but I think you're all wrong!

I believe the aircraft in question here is the former EVA Air B762, N623EV, stripped of paint and as far as I can tell from the pic, it isn't yet in cargo configuration (windows still there and are yet to be plugged). N623EV is not for ABX, it's for Star Air in Denmark - and their official fleet list confirms this.

According to the trackers, N623EV arrived from Taipei on 25th at 1920 local and departed 26th at 1855 local to Tocumen in Panama, both times using rego as callsign. Why it departed to Panama I've absolutely no idea though.

The latest two ABX conversions have been N798AX and N799AX, both ex ANA, JA8251 and JA8252 respectively. If the above pictured aircraft was one of the latest ones for ABX then it would look like this :

N798AX flew TLV-BRU-ILN as 'ABX39' 19-20/11/05 looking like this:

N798AX

and N799AX was sitting at BRU yesterday, as the above photo states.

RobK is right,

This is a former EVA Air 767 and arrived just a few days ago, last sunday to be precise, at Porto Alegre (SBPA/POA) where it will be converted into freighter by VARIG Maintenance and Engineering. Here's a photo from it arriving at POA:

Stephan has photos here so I assume this one might find its way to the a.net database as well.

Cheers
