Does anyone know any info on this "new" MIA based cargo airline: ie whos, whats, wheres, hows, & whys.

The only thing I know is that the people running it are from Challange Air Cargo, and they are operating the 3 Challange Air DC10-40s. Something was mentioned that the sale of Challange to UPS didnt include the airlines certificate and the 3 10s.

Please advise

Thank you

Thats exactly the story. The 3 DC10-40Fs are now
used on an ACMI basis, like Gemini or Atlas. I believe
they are being used from Latin America to Miami at
present, as they are present at MIA most every day
at different parts of the field. UPS didnt want
the aircraft because of the incapability with their

UPS aquired the leases of all Challenge aircraft when they purchased Challenge. The 75's were then sent back to the lessor and now are with Icelandair. The lessor of the DC-10's wouldn't let UPS out of the contract. UPS used them with ex Challenge pilots for flights to Latin America until the lease was up. Now they are with Centurion.
