Hello All-
Anyone know a good resource which shows ALL aircraft types currently operated by UPS?
And before you say the UPS website, it only includes large body aircraft.

Thanks for the help

The message you were about to post is too short and probably not of any higher value to the topic at hand. You should think long and hard before posting a message in this forum and make it detailed and a valuable addition to the topic discussed

UPS only operate wide-bodied aircraft, so your reference regarding the UPS website is probably the most accurate source. So, this link is taken from the Press Release section.

http://www.pressroom.ups.com/mediaki...05,1278,00.html?mkname=upsairlines

On the other hand, could you be referring to other smaller carriers contracted to operate on behalf of UPS?

Bingo,
Specifically a small twin engine turbo prop.
Guess it is a contract carrier.
Any ideas?

Well, it's not twin-engined, but it's certainly small - this Grand Caravan gets contracted by UPS for feeder routes:

I don't think UPS directly operates any other aircraft besides the ones I listed in reply 3.

Don't like to admit it but you've stumped me altogether.

Is it painted in corporate colours? If so, then perhaps is a corporate aircraft used by company officials when travlling on business? But what it actually is, I've got no idea.

I've had a look at previous threads regarding the UPS fleet as a sort of double-check, and no such aircraft has ever been mentioned before as far as I could tell.

 sorry

I have not personally seen it but I have been told by the airport manager that it operates at that airport 2x daily.

As far as I know, we don't operate these anymore. They were not owned by UPS, just painted in the colors.

Look at the registration on the picture. N570UP, currently a B747-400.

UPS corporate does not own any aircraft for corporate use.

What airport?

Ameriflight does a lot of UPS feed. They fly Lancers, Navajos, 402s, 99s, 1900s, Metros, and Brasilias (maybe more). AFAIK they're all in faded/peeling ameriflight colors, but the Metro we used to get in PDX had part of a very faded UPS logo on the rudder panel.

Getting close, but from what I have heard they are still operating there today, 2x a day.

Thanks for all the help people.

The 757 and the DC8 aren't wide-bodied, both operated by UPS.

From Flightaware....

UPS 1384 arrives from Louisville every morning between 430 and 530.

UPS 1383 departs to Louisville every night between 2200 and 2300.

It is not always a 747, before mid August it was always at A300-6. Now it seems to alternate between 741,742,A306, and DC87. I am no expert and do not have a good guess as to why it alternates, or why such a large aircraft between the two cities. Increased capacity during the holidays? Does FEDEX and UPS do some sort of interline transfer with some packages to serve more cities? Just seems like a large aircraft between the two hubs.
