About TSO/UN there was in 2011 the information that they have ordered the B747-8I. Till today I didn‘t find any confermation about this. Maybe they are waiting for the confermation of the lovley aircraft.
Also spotted a photo on Airlines.net that there is the first B748-8F arrived for ABC Cargo in SVO:

In addition there is one question that I have about the airports: Since a while Kursk (URS/UUOK) is closed since a while for maintainance.. Does anybody know about the status of the airport when will be available for the flights?? I think that there where flights regular fro VKO/UUWW to URS!!!
I very much hope for the good discussion on this Russian Thread and look forward to any imputs and corrections!!
Thanks and cheers
