Centurion / Sky Lease Cargo with Chinese Livery?

Mon Jul 02, 2018 8:34 am

Hi aviation enthusiasts,

some days ago a friend from HKG told me that one B747F of Centurion or SkyLeaseCargo is in all-white with big black Chinese characters on the side. He even showed me a small photo but was not sure if it was real or photoshopped. Did you see this aircraft flying? At Flightradar I even can see no operation at all.

Thanks a lot and have a great day.

All the best,

Tim

Since it's all-white with Chinese caracters, how does he know it's Centurion?

Well, of course aircraft registration must still be visible. But unfortunately not on that picture.
He heard from market that this is charter for Chinese forwarder operated by Centurion.

So far Centurion seems to operate only one 744F, N904AR.

Centurion ceased operations a the end of 2016; its certification has been suspended. N904AR was operated by Sky Lease, but has been parked since January.

Even where the picture was taken was not clear. But seems to be fake as nobody has any information about it.

The 2 pictures I have are not good quality, they would be more like a form of evidence.

I have given up on posting pictures on airliners.net. I have pictures of planes that are not in the database, but get rejected. I had recently a very nice picture of a plane, again not in the database. Got rejected. Light was soft, yes it was 6 am, it had other "flaws". Take it as it is, I am not going to create a fake picture by editing it.
