Re: KL 744 Phase out News and Discussion Thread

Also the three (3) 747-406ERF aircraft will soon find a new home, replacing aging (converted) 744F aircraft. (Cargolux, UPS, Kalitta, etc )
PH-MPS, the Martinair 747-412BCF is due for HMV in 2023 and will be less desirable.

Wasn't there some speculation in last year's cargo thread that the plane had a rear cargo door and could be converted to a full freighter? Though some people dismissed it as just advertising schemes. I don't rem...
