  1. Matt, very nice aerial pictures, especially the photo of the two 747-8F's is PERFECT.

    Hi Matt,

    Now I also have to comment it. I follow this Blog now quite a bit and I really like it.
    I'm originally from Switzerland but lived in Vancouver for the last 1 and a half years.

    Keep the good work coming :-)

    Now I also have a question: Who will operate the Panalpina 748F?

    Greetings,

    Michael

  3. Matt, what are those weights called hanging off of the engine pylons? What purpose do they serve?

  5. The dummy engine weights keep the airplane from tipping back on the aft fuselage.
