FlightAware is showing that Flight 9011 came in from Iceland to Bangor, Maine yesterday (March 1) and overnighted there. This morning it will fly from Bangor to Memphis under the same flight number. I'm not sure if this is the first FedEx 757 or not, but I thought I'd share in any event.

Cool- first of many FedEx 757 flights to come. Wonder if it's already a 757F?

Well, FlightAware shows no evidence that this bird left Bangor. Maybe it's still there. If it is, maybe someone up there can grab a shot of it!!

A little out of topic but I was driving by Subic bay (Philippines) a few weeks ago and I was surprised to see out of nowhere a bunch of FX planes. It turns out it's their SE Asian hub. Why in a place in the middle of nowhere??

No, it actually belongs to the topic as we expect the 757 to be feeder to SIN, BKK and Japan. SFS is the so called Asia One Hub, which is a Top 5 Operation Hub within the FDX Network. In Peak Times they experience up to 190 Rotation per day.Subic Bay was or better is known as the former Clark AFB.With an excellent infra-structure,
lots of man power and pretty low costs, FDX moved in there in the early 90 tees, after the US Forces left. Today, SFS is the HUB for ASPAC Operations and everything from MD-11, A310, 727s and Caravan's (MNL and CEB Service) can be found here in the course of a shift. The Distribution Center is the latest to be found in logistic technology and is top notch or high end when it comes to Express Business. I understand that FDX partly owns the airport and has a long term commitment in that region.

I'm a bit hesitant to believe this is really a Fedex 757. Can anybody with Fedex confirm for me that you'll be receiving 757's? I was under the impression there were very few used 757's available on the market to begin with? I'm thinking perhaps this flight in BGR was another airline operating under contract for FX with a 757 maybe? I have seen this happen on Flightaware.com before with Kalita Air flights operating 747's for Fedex. Just curious.... If this really is a FX 757 than it's new to me!  Smile

Negative. We are talking to Boeing about another LRF for feeder capabilities.

Negative. It was a lease. We are leaving Subic Bay end of Q4, 2007, to open the Asia hub at CAN.

Subic Bay is the former US Navy base. UPS is using the former Clark AB as their hub. Like FXramper said, Fedex is moving their hub to CAN.

Which equipment are WE considering if WE are talking to Boeing? Hard to believe that none of the 87 757s
wouldnt come over here. FDX ASPAC in SIN is already talking about it too.

Negative here too. WE invested nearly 100 mill US$ in to SFS and SBIA, the owner and operator of SFS, is partly owned by the FDX ASPAC Group, which is part of the FDX Group. Another statement - quoted from FEDEX STAFF Bulletin:

FedEx Express, the world's largest express transportation company, has extended its lease for its Asia Pacific hub in Subic Bay, Philippines for three additional years to 2010 with an option to extend. FedEx also signed an option, which will permit FedEx to use land at the Diosdado Macapagal International Airport, formerly known as Clark Air Force
Base, to be used for future expansion in the Philippines if the Company chooses.

FedEx has maintained its Asia Pacific hub at Subic Bay since 1995. The Subic Bay facility is the largest air express hub in the region and represents one of the company's most important investments.

"Our outstanding performance across the region and exceptional results in China indicate that our current operations at Subic Bay may not be able to support our projected growth," said David L. Cunningham Jr., President of FedEx Express, Asia Pacific Division. "Therefore we have signed an agreement with Diosdado Macapagal International Airport that reserved land through 2008"

That is correct and my apologies. Clark AFB and Subic Bay are also known as the Subic Clark Corridor and I always mix them up. Howevever Diosdado Macapagal International Airport is now the correct name for Clark.

IAI/Bedek did do the DHL 757s. However, ST Mobile Aerospace has the contract to do the FedEx 757 conversions. See, e.g., http://www.atwonline.com/news/story.html?storyID=7650

An interesting note about this. IAI Bedek was a partner of ST Aero on the 757 conversion program after the restructured program (licensed from Boeing) was announced. IAI dropped our a few months before the the FedEx RFP, perhaps to focus on the 737 and 767 and not have the somewhat competing 757 as a distraction in their marketing.

Bad timing I'd say!
