Found this from 2010.
http://www.flightglobal.com/news/art...ching-757-combi-conversion-348774/

The piece says that Air Transport Services Group (ATSG) subsidiary Cargo Aircraft Management were going to use three to replace its McDonnell Douglas DC-8 combis.
Don't know if it happen tho.
you don't get a second chance to make a first impression!

National Air Cargo is getting them but I don't know if they are going to operate them or not. They are being delivered but put into storage I think. It seems like it could be a very versatile aircraft if it is marketed to the right people.
Too lazy to work, too scared to steal!

Those aircraft were not converted by Precision but rather by Pemco.

To find at least some of the Precision converted freighters, go here and any with PCF in the type are what you are after: http://www.airliners.net/search/inde...e=version&nextpstart=200&nextpend=

The reason was Understanably an operator wanting to use a Freighter....especially an -PF or -PCF over an -SF but why spend to convert a B752 to a B752PCC......

Here is your answer:

http://www.precisionconversions.com/press-release_cam-combi-award.html

The 757 combi is designed to replace the DC-8-62 combi, since it can do essentially the exact same job but is much more modern and fuel efficient.

The market for combi operations is very limited, but there are other 757 combis being used for NATO and military purposes - very different missions from the PCF/PF/SF missions - plus a single one at Royal Nepal that was a factory product and not a conversion and is unrelated to these later developments.

True The RNA B752C was the only combi built till date......Now these combi conversions would be of interest to which operator.ATI was one.
