FedEx 757 Now Easily Viewable In MEM

Fri May 25, 2007 7:29 am

As of the beginning of the week, FedEx's 757 has moved from near the maintenance hanger over to the overflow ramp along Swinnea Rd. This is on the E side of the field and very visible from the road. A great place to snaps some pics before it receives the FedEx livery or moves again. There is also a DC10 or MD10 in the same place, although there was an A300 their Tuesday.

Are FedEx taking any ex-Arkia birds? Only there is a 757 here at GYR which has had its Israeli registration removed. Seeing as FedEx have quite a bit of Mx done here, it might make sense, as I doubt Arkia would send a 757 all the way to GYR just for Mx!

So far the only ones I know of are the ex El Al RR ones. They will get some from US.

Here it is. I have been in MEM for a day now and was out at the airport taking pictures. This is the pictures of it in the new parking spot taken with permission from FX and from KMEM.

Doubtful because it is replacing a 727 on their USA domestic/North American flights.

Yes, but by way of Sun D'Or International Airlines service after it served with BA.
