There is a Danish Airline named "Star" (a subsidary of Maersk) that operates UPS aircraft within Europe. UPS airplanes are routinely transferred to and from Europe to support that operation. Planes operated by Star for UPS have included the 727-100QF, the 757-200PF, and the A300F4-622R.
UPS airplanes that operate into and out of Europe on scheduled flights are flown by regular UPS flight crews.
The registration number is changed each time a plane is flown to or from Europe operation.

How funny, this nightshift I worked this flight on its CGN-KEF leg and I thought: "A 727, how cool!". It's not that I see a B727 every week. And now it's even a thread on Airliners!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

This plane was previously used on the route CGN-WAW and operated by UPS. Starair doesn´t operate any 727 anymore since springtime, their current planes are 757s leased from UPS.
N941UP is probably going to Roswell, NM for storage and eventualy disposal (as other UPS 727s).
Currently there is N944UP flying the WAW route, operated by UPS.

I live in New Hampshire but I am always interested in what comes through Bangor (BGR) Maine. Flights like this apparently tech-stop there...especially short-legged narrow-body aircraft like this, but also many of the troop carriers such as World DC-10s and MD-11s, Omni DC-10s, Am Trans, Miami Air and so many others. Many charters from/to the UK to/from Florida stop at BGR in both directions...most often the 757s, but any aircraft that might otherwise have the legs if not for strong headwinds.

I wish I lived close enough to BGR to make day-trips up there, but alas I'm just too far away.
