Here is a snapshot of 747-200 currently operating 5:13 pm EST. It is in preview of our upcoming analysis of cargo operators. We will attempt to understand the value of Boeing 747-200 and DC-10 freighters remaining in operation. We feel that MD-11 brings significant value in that segment , so we will consider that model although it is a more recent aircraft. The Boeing 777 Freighter is the newcomer and we will consider the prospects that it offers for the future. We notice that three airlines are involved in this listing:
Southern Air operates a fleet of up to 15 Boeing 747-200F. The airlines had built its fleet around the General Electric CF6 engines as part of its strategic plan , claiming that this engine model was the most efficient in that category, allowing to carry optimally 108 tons over 3,500 miles. Also operates 2 Boeing 777 Freighters.
Atlas Air operates a fleet of up to 18 Boeing 747 including 5 Boeing 747-200 and 1 Boeing 747-300 while the rest are -400 freighters.
Kalitta Air has 17 Boeing 747-200 complemented by 6 Boeing 747-400 operating.
