Nope, World Airways flies some military charters from ATL to FRA on N117WA.
This plane is built to withstand anything... except a bad pilot.

What about Okinawa? There's Kaneda, where a lot of US military personnel are stationed. I remember a post where someone said about World Airways doing military charters there.
