Re: How many airlines operate 747F to ANC?

It's DHL, the fly up to 8 daily flights on ANC-CVG, mostly with 744's and 748's. Does Singapore Airlines still fly a 747F to ANC? Yes, they fly ANC-CVG a couple times a week with a B74F. Why so much capacity to/from CVG versus similar sized metros? I mean, I get ANC, as they're still a bit of a pol...

Re: Abandoned midwest-US cargo hubs

Kind of a tangent here, but what would an operation like Fedex's at MKE be called? Aside from daily DC10s to MEM, there is also a daily A300 or A310 from Appleton that goes on to IND or MEM. Also, there's a daily morning swarm of single engine Caravans to outstate WI and some MI locations.
