Oops, not a 747-200F, its a former ANA/Nippon Cargo 747-SR81F.

O ohhhh, not the best time to start a new cargo airline. Just to let you know (and a little bit off-topic I have to admit): Air Cargo Germany hasn't made a single flight since they received their first B 747 in February 2009.

Surely not a good time for anyone anywhere. I though about ACG, too. Still no commercial flight of that one? Is it doing training flights still or is it parked? The second 744BCF is supposed to be deilvered soon.
As for the Elite freighter, I wonder what sense it makes to operate a "SR" freighter (btw, it seems to be the only SR-freighter in the world). That one must less capable than a 742F, even if it had been modified during the freighter conversion.

No, three other (ex-JAL) 747SRs were converted, too, and operated by Evergreen and Kalitta, but they aren't active any more.

Nothing's worse than flying the same reg twice!

Thanks

Its former ANA 747-SR81 JA8158, a short/mediumhaul aircraft built in 1982 which was converted to freighter and then operated by Nippon Cargo until 2006.

I'm sure that this plane soon will fly from Tehran.

Elite also had for some days two former Clickair A320. But they were delivered to Vertir Airlines and they operate now for Iran Air. Never had a SX-registration.

I can't imagine, with all the disused, unwanted 747 classics sitting around in deserts and on old airfields the world over, why they would pick an SR model. Freighters already have limited range, because more fo their MTOW gets dedicated to the payload. To get a model with even greater reduced range, even if it does mean a slightly beefier body structure, simply doesn't make a lick of sense to me. Why did they choose this aircraft?

I think they will be gone within a few months, just like that other Greece cargo airline back in 2006/2007:
