If Im not mistaken AI operate a single DC-8F for cargo operations, the aircraft is leased and does not wear the AI livery except for titles and its old. Considering they are gifting their three A300s to Ariana-Afghan Airlines, why didnt they think of retaining one and converting it to cargo confuiguration? especially since there is a conversion facility in India according to an Indian member here, wouldnt it work out for AI in every way? full livery, conversion at home, own much newer aircraft and no more lease payments, makes sense.
