So, as Santa and his reindeer continue to deliver their packages, where do we find Aerotranscargo's roudy 747s for the final few hours before Christmas???
ER-BAJ: Out of the former British Territory HKG headed Westbound. Operated a LGG-NQZ-KHN-??? route.
ER-BAM: Roll Tide began Christmas early and has been on the ramp in NQZ for the past 24hrs.
ER-BBB: Resting in KHN with company...company, after operating LGG-NQZ-KHN.
ER-BBC: Frankfurt, Germany for the past 4 days.
ER-BBJ: The Upper Crust Society, Factory Made, Only Nose Loading 747 of the group matched BBB's routing and also flew LGG-NQZ-KHN. Both Upper Crust and BBB share the ramp at KHN currently.
ER-JAI: Slept through all of Peak @ CGK for MRO.
ER-BAC: The Paxargo, "Gun For Hire" of Terra Avia continues to sit in LOS awaiting the next call of a midnight run.
ER-BAG: The red headed step child rests in GYD. It flew an interesting route of GYD-TII-GYD. TII is Tarinkot Airport in Afghanistan.......
National Airlines 747-400
N756CA: Flew HKG-ANC. More than likely a free bird at this point and preparing to reposition.
Western Global 747-400
N344KD: Forty FO pulled a PHL-CAE-ORD-YHZ-ANC and is currently Westbound at 32,000ft and 520kts for ANC. More than likely all done with Peak when it broke for ORD. Prior to peak it flew ORD-YHZ-ANC-ICN-CSX-ANC-ORD lengths like clockwork.
N621UP: ANC-ICN, not a hard day
N845FD: Old 45 Slab Slides pulled a DXB-CDG-MEM and is currently Westbound over the Atlantic.
Is Aerotranscargo primarily hauling cargo from Europe and Asia to NQZ, or is it using NQZ as a stop for cargo traveling between Europe and Asia? Thanks in advance for any info.
I believe they are using it for the latter, sort of like the role ANC plays for US-Asia routes. CX747 will know more though.
