Re: COVID-19 Cargo Discussion Thread (Cargo Operators and Passenger Airlines Operating Cargo Only Flights)

Atlas has started LAX-ICN-KHN-ANC-LAX flights. Runs until at least October. Last time we had flights to a random Chinese airport it was masks for Covid. Can't find the CAM message to determine what it is, but possibly more Covid runs for them.

Re: Potentially groundbreaking aircraft prototype unveiled

Skimmed the article, not amused. Should we start placing bets? I say less than 5 are built and it's a failure.

Re: Atlas Air Cargo B747-LCF

Are the 5Y pilots who fly the BLCF regular 747-4/8 pilots or are they a dedicated sub-group ONLY flying the BLCF? I'm assuming these flights go senior pilots mostly? 74Gear on Instagram and YouTube used to fly the Dreamlifter. They're all 747-400/8 certified and a select few are trained on the LCF....

Re: Atlas B744, PVG, Aug-5-2020: triple engine pod strike

That shouldn't be possible unless the left strike deflected the wing enough to allow the #2 to strike. I need to see a video. That is a landing rougher than I have any experience with. I'm betting crew fatigue. Give the pilots a wizz quiz and a Covid19 test! I've read a bunch on how Covid19's reduc...

If you think of it that way. Aviation related deaths are part of the industry. Just like car crashes are part of the car industry. Can't turn a blind eye to it.

Re: Amazon Fleet Discussion - 2020

Atlas 767 starting early August HNL-OGG-KOA-RIV-HNL Highly unlikely. Two daily inter-island hops would be a poor use of a 767 especially when HNL already receives 2x daily nonstops. Outer island flights do appear to be starting soon based on jumpseat skeds though. Schedule seems to be RIV-OGG-KOA-R...

So N1409A, operating a GTI Amazon Air Flight 3743 from AUS-ILN on Friday afternoon, diverted to LIT and stayed there about 24 hours. It then flew (as GTI6743) to ILN Saturday afternoon, dropped its cargo, and immediately took off for MIA, presumably for a look-see by Atlas maint. Initially, I was t...

Re: Time for the airlines to restart advertising

Had the opportunity to fly both Delta and American this week. Delta is blowing American out of the water right now. Delta already requires masks at the gate and in flight. The gate agent checked everybody's seat to make sure there the middle seat was empty. First leg was a 737-800 and second was a M...

Re: Anchorage (ANC) become the world’s busiest airport in the midst of coronavirus

I've been flying in between Anchorage, Incheon, Shanghai, and Taipei City doing PPE runs and I believe it. As I'm typing this I'm looking at a fairly full ramp from my hotel in Anchorage. A few AN-124s have been through recently, the AN-225 was here yesterday. A lot of cargo is coming through.

Re: COVID-19 Cargo Discussion Thread (Cargo Operators and Passenger Airlines Operating Cargo Only Flights)

I, as a loadmaster, had the opportunity and honor to work a Project Airbridge flight on N702GT PVG-ANC, then onward to ORD. Airplane full of masks. Shanghainese were very compassionate and willing to do any and everything to help. I am eager to work the same flight again in a few days.

Re: Amazon Fleet Discussion - 2020

Airplane threw an indicator light to the pilots while in Baltimore. Issue was deferred, Atlas ICN fixes issue.

Also note, had the same crew ANC-ICN-PVG-ANC so crew also needed adequate rest in ICN.
