Freight DogsFinally a forum for those midnight prowler types who utilise the unglamorous parts of airports that many of us never get to see. Freight Dogs is for pilots and crew who operate mostly without SLF.
Just to let you know that Manston has lost one of its fixtures in the form of the B747 N801KH (formally S2 - ADT ). The aircraft lifted off shortly after 1300hrs making the short, gear down, ferry flight to a small airport just outside Bremen in Germany.
It was also noticed that MK continue to remove bits and bobs from the old AFX cargo aircraft formally G - GAFX parked on the "Wasp" at Manston.
hmm Interesting, do we know which airport this is and what the purpose of the movement was? Scrapping/Storage/Refurbishment? The only ones I know of in that area are Lemwerder XLW (Maintenance & MRO facilities) or Cuxhaven Nordholz (ex-Military but developing freight airport).
Nice photographs of the aircraft arriving in Germany....I take it that the runway was wet hence the "spray cloud" in front of 3 & 4 engines....It also looks like a flock of birds trying to get out of the way of the mincing machines! Sorry about the paperwork but all it says is keep your hands off...... I guess the new owners will carry out a costing exercise to see whether or not the old lady will fly again....it could be she is worth more in pieces....
