Went out to the airport today on a hunch something good was there. Well, I wasn't disappointed as I pulled up to find this beauty parked on the south cargo ramp. N620DL is Cappie's new Boeing 757 and here she is. Quite the looker I must say!!!

Photo of this is in the queue here I might add.

Hi all:

All KMIA spotters have your camera ready, since this beauty is coming down to MIA sometime Monday, and it is expected to do it´s first cargo flight for DHL Aero Expreso. It will eventually replace Capital´s B727 that is based in Miami for DHL Aero Expreso. First flight should be to PTY late at night and returning early in the a.m. Will take my camera to take some shots early tuesday.

Nice pic.

You see Capital Cargo International doing a number of lifts across the country with their fleet of 727's. Here at BNA, they do lift for ABX and DHL I believe. Daily visitors to say the least at BNA.

This was one of the older 757's in the Delta fleet. Delivered to Delta and everything back in 1988 I think.

No, this was an original DL ordered straight from Boeing...then sold and leased back (I believe), and they let the lease terminate without extending it.

Capital Cargo is a charter cargo airline who flies certain flights for DHL. They are owned by ABX Holdings, inc.

As mentioned above, they are owned by ABX Holdings. They don't actually fly for ABX, but rather for certain routes for DHL who happens to be ABX's largest customer as well.

I could have had the first shot on the net since I borrowed a decent digital camera the other day but kept putting it off and then waited for a day of clear blue sky around noon lol

I was expecting a new scheme, but I like it more than on the 727. The orange stripe on the nose goes down and looks kinda cool. Also the positioning of the titles looks kinda different to me

I would agree. The extra large font and titles are striking on the side and the overall look is quite nice for the 757!

Who is Cappy?

Cappy is a subsidiary of what used to be ABX Holdings, as is ATI and ABX Air.

Cappy, ATI and an aircraft management and leasing company were all owned by a company called Cargo Holdings. ABX just bought Cargo Holdings and renamed itself. Cargo Holdings had a few 762 and 752 conversions in the works, and ABX Air is the largest operator of 762Fs. The CHI 762s were to go to ATI, and the 752s to Cappy. ATI primarily flies DC8s.

Cappy and ATI operate primarily NOT for DHL (which ABX operates for), but rather for BAX/Schenker, a heavyweight delivery company that hubs at TOL. The two airlines have now opened a "neutral gateway" at TOL which allows freight forwarders to put stuff aboard their aircraft "neutrally" (i.e. treated equivalently to the BAX stuff that the aircraft is flying already to deliver). This is to make up in part for the demise of Kitty Hawk, which left some freight forwarders in the lurch who had used Kitty Hawk's non-integrated scheduled freight service.

True, though, that the Cappy bird will operate in charter service for the DHL contractor that runs from the US to South America.

I am thinking this is one of the airplanes that Leo sold to Pegasus to generate cash to give himself, my bad, the shareholders through added value in the form of dividents. The problem is the aircraft was sold to them during an era of premium leasing rates so when it was leased back to Delta it was a very high rate. When DL renegotiated lease rates in Ch. 11 Pegasus refused to negotiate to lower rates and thus the leases were rejected. Ironically Dick Cosi has his hands in the cookie jar here as he was formally of DHL and started Pegasus while there, as I understand it. Now this airplane is going to be flying DHL freight after being wrestled away from Delta. Smart play by Cosi and yet another shining example of what a moron Leo Mullin was/is.

Its a Precision Conversion, thus a 757 "PCF", but all these suffixes (SF, PCF, ACF) are nothing but marketing names anyway since it is an STC conversion and its still a 757-200.



35 years of American Trans Air/ATA Airlines, 1973-2008. A great little airline that will not be soon forgotten.

My pleasure! I think it may be an occasional sight here as the ground crews were practicing pulling the unloader up to it and working the aircraft while it was here. There are some days where we get two Capital Cargo flights a day so it's only logical to think there is a slim chance it may show up here from time to time. Other than that, I think it's probably going to be more rare to see here than anything else. If I was a betting man, I would say we will remain to be one of their 727 markets.

Of course, this bird is destined for the MIA - S.America markets without a doubt though.
