LUX-related B747s Empty
PostSubject: LUX-related B747s   LUX-related B747s EmptyFri May 02, 2014 4:53 pm

Recently there were claims about low forum's activity. To come over this, I dived into my archives searching some pics of LUX-related B747s for a compilation we hadn't here so far. Of course, this collection is still very incomplete, but maybe we can fill the gaps together with the time?

To start with a B747-200F in Cargolux' first basic bare metal B747 livery, being diverted to CGN one day in 1984 due to bad weather at LUX:

LUX-related B747s J4b747cvlxecvpg01xpkhu



Followed by this nowadays more common B747-400F in the newer and revised basic grey livery, climbing out of LUX in 2008:

LUX-related B747s J4b747cv3400lxkcvst03uwjbl



More exciting might be this B747-400F of Air Atlanta, operating for some time on behalf of Cargolux in 2007:

LUX-related B747s J4b747abd2azqtfamosg06vkz0



After a short leasing period, Luxair returned this B747SP to South African Airways in 1981, seen here approaching FRA's northern runway in the early morning sun, still showing basic Luxair livery:

LUX-related B747s J4b747salgzsspasl01inkv3



This China Cargo Airlines B747-400F is departing from LUX in 2008, heading east:

LUX-related B747s J4b747cckb2425st0327kzt



Regular visitor to LUX is China Airlines Cargo with B747-400F, seen here in 2007 (note also regular ACR AN-26 left behind in the background):

LUX-related B747s J4b747ci2cgo400b18705cgkub



In those days in 2002, CAL's B747s were still painted in more colours than just white, leaving a lot of rubber exactly at the runway's threshold:

LUX-related B747s J4b747icl4xiclpl01u5jqo



A LUX-departing B747-200F of Tradewinds Cargo is still showing basic Atlas Air Livery in 2007:

LUX-related B747s J4b747ikgtin508mcst04xtkcc



Jett8 Airlines' B747-200F were regular vistors in 2007:

LUX-related B747s J4b747j89vjeasg04n8jvq



For many years, MK Airlines' B747-200F could frequently be seen at LUX, as here in 2007 departing eastbound:

LUX-related B747s J4b747mka9gmkpst033iuqb



MK's one and only silver machine approaching from the other direction in the evening:

LUX-related B747s J4b747mkaslv9gmklsl03f4ub7



The year 2007 also presented this MK B747 still in basic Polar Air Cargo livery:

LUX-related B747s J4b747po1ntgmkeasg04y2ux9



Air Bridge Cargo B747-200Fs were as well a common sight at LUX, not only in that year:

LUX-related B747s J4b747vda200vpbibsl03kte19



In 2008, Yangtze River Express began scheduled services to LUX, using B747-400F:

LUX-related B747s J4b747yanb2431sg010ddbm


Further additions would be highly appreciated...

Good stuff, diddi, thank you - I knew I could count on you  cheers 

Just found two other LX-registered B747s, operating pax charters for Lionair in 1988 and taken at CGN, first one with Caribbean titles:

LUX-related B747s J4b747carlxfcvsg01nlk0g



The other one had Orionair titles, otherwise looking very much the same:

LUX-related B747s J4b747orilxgcvsg011wu97


There are definitely some more - I remember at least a stored private B747SP and an ex-Air National B747 I took a few years ago at LUX, but presently can't find the slides...  Embarassed

Well I certainly can't compete with your treasures. This is the oldest one I've found. Everything else is the same old we have nowadays.

Keep on posting! Unfortunately I was born too late to contribute with retro pics!
Diddi - the Air National 747 at FRA is LX-GAL and not SAL Wink
Ialso saw an Alitalia behind the Air Atlanta with Nigeria titles - a common visitor?

Should have been no common visitor but a maintenance visitor at Cargolux.

Thanks for the valuable additions - they make quite an impressive picture collection. Some liveries like Corsair etc. are still missing though. Who can help?

Here are six more:

VP-BIA on  what was on one of her first visits to LUX. She was said to leave on this day to the Far East, so we hoped for a long take-off run. Instead she was doing an empty ferry-flight to OST
leaving us with this result:

LUX-related B747s Nylm


The AZ 747F in front of the CV maintenance hangars must have been N409MC, here at FRA:

LUX-related B747s 5wg8


An overview on a very wet day in July, 1987

LUX-related B747s 252xf


And very much LUX related was Focus Air with ist two 747Fs, here the series -300

LUX-related B747s Ysu3m


M499MC in July 2003

LUX-related B747s E8rt


And finally, the Panalpina 747 N492MC in July 2002:

LUX-related B747s 0ebq
