I was curious as to why UPS has not painted any of their 747s in to the new colors yet? Many of the much older aircraft such as DC-8s and 721s (which I'm sure have many more hours on the clock) have been repainted. As UPS operates so many 747s on their long haul high capacity cargo flights, I would find it hard to believe that they would be retiring the type. With all the relatively newer classics parked in the desert these days, it seems as if it would be easy for UPS to pick up some new aircraft with less cycles on them at bargain prices if that were the issue. I would appreciate it if anyone could fill me in on the subject.
