Today UPS Flight 9131 flew Luxembourg to Bangor, Maine, and then on to Roswell, NM.

If this is a flight to a desert storage place, isn't that odd for such a new plane? UPS hasn't had 747-400s for that long. Is business so bad that this has to occur, or is it something else (actual cargo going from Luxembourg to New Mexico)?

I believe this is a ferry flight for a plane they bought from Cargoloux? Anyone got details for sure?

Neither, it's an ex-CV bird sold to UPS on its delivery flight straight to the paint shop.


I've got $h*t to do

So it most probably came through BGR sporting Cargolux livery.

Thanks for the info!

It could have been stripped of its titles by CV employees for all we know. I believe this is the 2nd of 4 total going to UPS?

That are all GE-powered birds, right?

Following excerpt from UPS website section on the 744F.

UPS has committed to purchasing a total of 14 747-400 freighters. Eight of them will be new aircraft and four will come from Cargolux; all 12 will have nose-cargo loading doors. The remaining two are former EVA Airlines 747-400 "combi" aircraft that do not have nose-cargo doors and will be converted to full freighter configuration.

Sad to see the Caroglux birds going away, hope their replacement the -800Fs come soon!

Isn't LX-ICV the 1st B747-400F that was built?

Why did they stop in Bangor? The plane should be able to make that flight non-stop, especially with no load.

customs reasons. It's a popular destination. I think its a waste, they should be able to fly onto their destination and take care of the customs paperwork and inspection there.
