Remarks: Here's a weird one, used in the movie 'Air Force One'. Later painted with fake bullet holes in the tail! To confuse things even further this is the first N703CK, not to be confused with the later N703CK that was actually a freighter still flying in 2006.
Remarks: In 2006 this storied jumbo was flying freight for Kalitta. Past operators include Saudia, Nigeria, British, Air France and Garuda.
Remarks: The 'disassembly line' at Ardmore, Oklahoma claimed many ex-UA jumbos along with these SP's seen here.
Remarks: UA parked this plane at Victorville, California for a couple of years after 9/11.
Remarks: United parked this jumbo at Victorville right after 9/11. In 2005 it was still there!
Remarks: Launching off 24L nonstop to JFK. As of 2006 it was still plying the skies as a freighter for Kallitta.
Remarks: This old timer first flew in 1970 and was one of the first jumbos Polar Air Cargo used. It still wears its old United/Pan Am registration before wearing N853FT.
Remarks: Delivered to Singapore Airlines in 1979 and passed on to Olympic in 1985 until its retirement in 2001. Without a cargo door this gas guzzler is doomed.
Remarks: The old Athens airport was good for taking photos as long as the police didn't see you! This 747 ended up in Jakarta, Indonesia to be reduced to spares.
Remarks: This aircraft was known as 'The Whiskey Freighter' by the LAX rampers. Is that because of the registration or that pilots used to smuggle back liquor in the electronics compartment?
Remarks: Looking rather forlorn here at Mojave without engines this trijet did not seem to have a very bright future. Miami Air eventually picked it up and in 2006 it was flying as a freighter for Cargojet of Canada.
Remarks: As of 2006 in service with VARIG, in 2007 due to be converted to a freighter with UPS.
Remarks: This 747 has flown for nine different airlines since entering service in 1973. Its number came up in 2004 though when it entered the scrap yard at Marana, Arizona.
Remarks: As of 2006 this jumbo was cooling its heels at Stockholm after being grounded by the Swedish CAA.
Remarks: I was lucky to have this one take off on 25L since I only had my wimpy 135mm fixed lens.
