How many 742Fs does AF still have?. A second one should go to Cargo B as well.

F-GCBF was rolled out the hangar of HAECO a couple of weeks ago in a hybrid Ocean scheme (Like I-OCEU). They did not even bother painting the white again so the plane looks dirty and patchy. The windows are still there as well.

I assume the reg F-GCBF will remain as they have even painted "BF" on the tail.

F-GCBF is still sitting in Hong Kong so it may have officially have been delivered to Ocean but for some reason it has not entered service.

It seems there are some paperwork delay on the transfer from AF to VC AOC. French and Italian burocracy should be a big mess!
