New Kabo Air 747 On Delivery?

Thu Nov 22, 2007 8:26 pm

Hi all

Just happened to be listening to the HF Caribbean freqs earlier today and picked up QNK2115 routing from the US mainland towards the Bermuda VOR. The selcal given to New York would indicate the former Northwest 747 N636US, which coincidentally has been recently cancelled from the US register to Nigeria!

Does anyone have any info, like 5N- reg for example?

Thanks!

Thanks, yes I already saw that thread. I've now found out via a contact of mine that the reg is 5N-MAD.

5N-MAD? Strange registration for an english-speaking country I would say. Better than the Hellenic Imperial 747 registered SX-DIE, though.

Do you know wether the aircraft has been repainted in Kabo´s full livery? I´ve seen a picture of the aircraft in old NWA livery but with engines already blue.

According to my source, the plane delivered in Northwest's scheme with titles and logo painted out, but with Kabo coloured engines.
