I searched the database of "special paint schemes" for Cathay Pacific, but I couldn't find any that match the two different tails in this picture:

Mostly Cathay Pacific, the third one in from the right is Air Bridge Cargo. The one at the far end of the line-up I have no idea about, I'm afraid.

The other scheme should be a new cargo airline, Star Air out of Macedonia. They recently
started B747F service



Cargo doesn't whine, moan, or complain

The ULS Cargo tail is a match to the mystery tail on the far left of the picture in question:

A red jellyfish-like symbol with sets of parallel lines at the top. Star Air is a gold sun.

Ok I admit I was wrong, very wrong. Looking at the pic closer it certainly does look like its a ULS cargo & not the Star Air.

Hey Mark! Thanks for trying...all input is appreciated.

I have never heard of ANY of the cargo airlines mentioned, so I most definitely have learned something from a.net today!
