The info in that link is basicaly all I know, I did a search on the database and could not find another thread about it....

Any ideas when it will begin to be modified and when will it fly?

Thanks in advance!

Out of memory, I think it is being modified now from 3 ex-passenger 744s, and should receive certification by end of 2005. I hope someone who has more info could clarify this, but that was what I remembered.

The 2nd airframe was just traded in to Boeing, its a CI 747-409 circa 1989, 90. IIRC first aircraft was to fly end of 06
