Longtail Aviation taking ex klm 747m after F conversion

Fri Mar 05, 2021 10:08 pm

I saw on airfleets.net that Longtail Aviation is taking one of the ex 747M of KLM after F conversion. I wonder why KLM did not do that themselves. They had a young one of 2002.
They could have used it for extra capacity and in the long run replace the old one still flying for Martinair.

This has been discussed for quite a while in the Air Cargo thread. This is undergoing a "light" freighter conversion, meaning the forward cabin isn't getting the full conversion treatment.

As for KLM: Likely they passed on this for Martinair because they didn't want to do it.
