Just a guess but I'd say it belongs to FedEx.


Damn, this website is getting worse daily.

Well, a brief search doesn't show any members of the executive board, board of directors, or executive officers having the initails "FT" so the simple answer is out.

But THAT is a helluva corperate aircraft!



Happy contrails - I support B747Skipper and Jetguy

Would Flying Tigers have a history that goes back far enough for this bird to be something FedEx acquired in that transaction? '89 would be aproximately the right time for it to have been re-registered. That would lead me to think it's a display bird. Why they pay to keep it on the books is beyond me. I agree, an awesome ship.

That's when it was re-registered. More than likely out of China.

It was probably put on the civil register in '48, after being surplused from the service. You would definitely win the cool one.
Cheers!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy
