Does anybody know (or know somewhere where i could find out) the history of Air Atlanta Icelandic's 747 TF-ATZ?

Its previous operator for example; the colours make it look like it could be an ex-CX machine, or am i missing something  Nuts

Here's a picture (a very nice one) of the aircraft in J'burg:

This a/c is a 747-236B(SCD), cn 24088, and the -36 number indicates that it was originally ordered by BA. Can't really tell if it had another owner between BA and Air Atlanta. Info gathered from http://www.aerotransport.org/

Hope this helps!

Merry Christmas,

It's registration is still active and according to Air Atlanta's website, it's still in service.

Delivered as G-BDXP "City of Salisbury" to BA on February 24, 1988. Boeing's construction number was 24088, line number was 697.

Looks like it was sold to Snapdragon Ltd on July 25, 2001; who leased it to Air Atlanta Icelandic, who parked it at HKG on October 3, 2001. It was ferried to Luxembourg on December 9, 2001, and put into service.

You can download spreadsheets on most any type of commercial aircraft at http://www.airlinerlist.com, which is where I got the majority of the above info.

Hope it helps.

It was converted to a freighter by HAECO in Hong Kong, which perhaps explains the paint. When I saw it get rolled out of HAECO I also thought that it must be going on lease to CX, but apparently not. It now flies for Malaysian along with TF-ATX, which is in the same scheme. A third freighter is on the way.
