CI 747-200s Still Grounded?

Fri Jun 28, 2002 7:54 pm

What is going to happen to the China Airlines 747-200s? Are they going to be phased out, or are they going to be overhauled and re-enter service? I ask because one arrived in Hong Kong today from Taipei and has gone straight to HAECO. Will it reappear in China Airlines colours or not?

Well, CI has only 742F left, isn't it?

Yes that's right, they have 3 747-200Fs. They crashed their last passenger one.

It came hear ??, I would guess they are doing the checks outside of Taiwan because they don't trust their own people. According to our airfreight agent in LA the -200 Freighters will return to service in the next few weeks.

B-18752, B-18753, B-18755, B-18771 are the four remaining 742F's. B-18751 has gone to the states to be broken up.
