Is That A Thai A346 @ ORD?

Thu Oct 13, 2005 7:43 am

Notice in the photo near the 3 UPS planes there is a 4 holer sitting perpendicular to it. Notice the dark rear section. The livery looks to be that of Thai's new coloring. Any possible reason why this plane would be there? Thai doesn't serve ORD. Possible diversion?

That looks like a DC-8 of UPS in their new colour scheme.

Nope... that's UPS's new livery on the 767.

And is that a C-130 behind the UPS DC-8?

Oh, and not to get off subject, but if the full ORD expansion goes through and the new south runway gets built, this entire cargo area goes the way of the wrecking ball.....

And it doesn't have winglets, so no A346

Definitely a 5X DC-8-70. How can an A346 looks smaller than an A300F4-622R of UPS ?
