First 744 For MASkargo

Sun Mar 12, 2006 2:57 am

I saw this was being discussed in the Aeromexico 777 thread so I thought I would break it out...

Nice, nice  cool  The livery looks clean and so do the lines on the plane, IMO it looks way better than the dirty 742F's  Smile

Is this an order conversion from pax 744?If they don't have too many more on order this could be a possible option for reducing the size of their 744 fleet.

Is this a leased plane from JADE or some others that ordered 744Fs last year or so? Or it an MASKargo order?

I remember seeing that plane just over a week ago at the flight line at Paine Field in Everett while there to see the new Boeing Future of Flight center. It was the only newly built 747 out there. Most of the planes were 777s with a single LAN 767.

But one thing confuses me. Why MASkargo with a K? Is the K significant in some language?
If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

The Malay word for the "Cargo" is spelt as "Kargo".

Nice pics of the 744F , didnt know they ordered or leased these 744F .

I noticed in the 2nd's pic's remarks by Royal . " I got 99 problems but killing it ain't one." <-- What does he means ?

maybe in reference to the song by Linkin Park and Jay-Z "I got 99 problems but a b*tch aint one"

just a guess...

but, i love the livery on that 744F
