(Closed) 747-8 Inauguration Event Presented by UPSVA @ KBFI - 72400ZAPR18

Server: Expert

Region: United States

Airport: KBFI

Time: 2400Z

NOTAM: In celebration of reaching the 1,500-hour landmark at UPS Virtual, the staff are retiring their old fleet of Boeing 747-400s and are inaugurating the newer, more efficient, more powerful Boeing 747-8. This event will be the official 747-8 delivery flight for UPS Virtual, during which as many as 12 new aircraft will be flown from the Boeing Factory to UPS Virtual’s WorldPort. Although the 747-8 does not have the UPS livery right now, we hope to see it added in the future. See you there!

The flight will take us over the Central United States, for a flight that will last approximately 3 and a half hours.
