N607UP / LN1542 for UPS rolled out of paint hangar
The first 747-8F for UPS rolled out of the paint hangar covered in brown paper. It was parked at the fuel dock while they moved a Air China 777 out of the 45-04 paint hangar. This evening it was moved into paint hangar 45-04 to complete painting.
This was a NTU frame that was originally scheduled to be delivered to Air Bridge Cargo. It has undergone re-work during the assembly process to add the FAA required fire suppression systems that are not installed on ABC's 748F's. The rudder was also removed and repainted in UPS Brown. This will be the 2nd frame delivered to UPS, as LN1543 will be delivered first later this summer.
