First, the Remark reads "N24837 Operated by BA's Cargo"
Is this bird actually flown by BA? Or is it flown by Atlas on BA's behalf?
or does this bird having nothing to do whatsoever wit BA?
Does anybody know if this aircaft flies with BA (world Cargo) and if so, where does it fly?

Secondly, there is a UA 744 in the background outside the HAECO hangers.
Is that the 747 discussed in this topic: http://www.airliners.net/discussions/general_aviation/read.main/990907/
If so does anybody have any idea what is happening to it?

Regards,
A^A MD-11

N24837 along with the other 2 Atlas Air B747-300's N354MC and N355MC are leased and operated by Polar Air Cargo. From my understanding the aircraft will receive some form of the Polar scheme during the first half of this year.

The United has finally left (or at least out of sight!) after just over a week sat on the ground outside HAECO.
