B737 Freighter

Mon Jan 10, 2005 7:37 pm

Among the B737 Freighters Available,some were Manufactured Combis,some Freighter options,some were later converted.
Thus we have the B732C,B732QC,B732F,B733F,B734F,C40A.
Among the B737-300F & B737-400F which would be better suited.

Boeing did not build any second generation 737-300/400's with main deck cargo capability. The aircrafts in service are all converted.

737-400s can also be converted to QCs or Fs, but there have been no customers to date. This is partly due to the higher residual value of used -400s and the larger number of -300s originally built. Which means in the current circumstances the better choice could be the 737-300C's. But I'm not too sure which one is more suitable with regard to technical efficiency.

Cargo carrying capacity:
737-300C 12200-19730 kgs
737-400C 18700-20000 kgs
737-700C 18800 kgs

The 737-700C/QC though not widely flown could also be a better option.

Is Blue Dart the only company that uses a 737 as a freighter or there are others? I have actually never seen a 737 freighter in real life. Interesting!!

Of course there are others. TNT is one of the largest operators of the 737-300F. There are a few more. I doubt Boeing ever manufactured any 737F variants. Those in service are all Quick Change/Convertibles.

Try doing a search on the Photo Search page.

Plenty of companies use or have used the 737 as a cargo aircraft. Here are some photos -

New build 2nd gen 737s were definately available with main deck cargo capablities as the 737-300QC's. LH got them straight from Boeing as did AQ.

Air NZ use to operate a B732 combi, before it was given to Freedom Air. Now AirWork operate it, mostly on charters for NZ. I have seen it several times at WLG at night time while on Freight flights. While operating for NZ is wore the All Blacks paint scheme.

Alaska will send N754AS in the summer to Boeing for full converstion to freight. Four more will be sent over the next 3 years for combi conversion. I will get the reg. when I have the chance. I'll have to ask around.

Ha763, your statement above could be partly correct. But as far as I know Boeing delivered few newly built second generation aircrafts to Pemco World Air Services to be converted to the freighter version.
So probably the LH/AQ aircraft you are refering to could have been from the aircraft conversion company.

This link will probably help http://freightersonline.com/plane.asp?a=11

I've tried doing a search to find if Boeing actually manufactured any second gen 737 cargo a/c, however I could'nt find any. Any info will be appreciated.

Cheers,
Olly

I wonder if Fedex will pick up the USair 737's after they go under ??? I have heard that the FAA & Boeing have problems with the floors of converted 737's & 727's. In the event of a cargo door opening in flight the floor cannot handle the G load. Fedex has been fighting the FAA on this for a few years now.

Has everyone forgotten about CHX. They have a good fleet of QC's and a B737-300F. They were brought as QC's although some were converted. The F was converted.

Kittyhawk cargo is suppose to get a few 737's converted for cargo use sometime soon. I think there suppose to be -300's, but I forget who they were getting them from. Anybody have anymore info on Kittyhawks 737's?
