THAI's First 744BCF Arrived In BKK

Sat Mar 31, 2012 11:24 pm

I came across this Thai aviation-centric website and found this. The aircraft is HS-TGJ (once adorned by the Royal Barge livery), and was converted to freighter in Xiamen.

Best,

Nice to see the FULL TG color scheme applied to the aircraft as opposed to the previous scheme applied on the Thai Cargo (Southern Air) Boeing 777-FZB N775SA...

I am a bit surprised they cose the oldest 744 in the fleet for conversion. Which will be the second one? TGK?

The 744 BCF (or BDSF?) is certainly nice looking in it full scheme. Btw HS-TGJ is the 777th 747 built.

TGJ is the second oldest 744 that TG has. The oldest, which is also converted to freighter, is TGH.

TGH has also been converted to a freighter (BCF)? I can't find any photos of this.

BDSF are the ones that been converted here in TLV by Bedek aviation. TG 744F was converted in XMN thus being BCF.
