Interesting 747 catch on FR24

Sun Jun 09, 2019 9:49 pm

Hi guys,

Thought this was an interesting catch.

Theres a Kalitta 742 currently En-route from AMS to JFK.
I looked it up on Fr24 and the frame appears to have been taken out of storage at the company facility in Oscoda and performed a few patterns over northern Michigan before entering service. Its seen CVG, IAH, ZRH, AMS and now JFK later today.

Nice to see a nearly 50 year old vintage 747 flying.

Long live the queen!

Sorry to disappoint you but this isn't the original (747-132) N709CK. It is a ex. Korean Air 744BCF, bought by Kalitta and was reregistered this April. Have a look here:

Seems like it was at CVG for maintenance before

By the way: the original N709CK was scrapped in 2015. So, unfortunately no chance of flying again :(
