  1. Wonder why Airbridge is storing VQ-BRH? If the -8F has better fuel economy, wouldn't it make sense to put this bird in service and store one of the -400F instead?

  2. Airbridge negotiated a delivery delay for RC604, due the present cargo market downturn. The aircraft is still fully owned by Boeing (see registration N769BA) and only part of the payment has to be provided by ABC.

  3. But what happened with LAN CC-BDM? Why it is stored at the tower apron?
