FedEx Express ships 91K pounds of PPE to New Hampshire | MD-11F Spotting

Hi everyone!
Today, we got a surprise visit of a FedEx Express MD-11F to the Manchester-Boston Regional Airport!
Not only was this special to us, but this flight carried essential PPE so that the Medical teams here in NH can be kept safe from COVID-19.

I went to MHT to spot this special occasion, as we rarely get an MD-11F into MHT!

Wait a sec… it came from SHANGHAI??? That’s a long one

I forgot to mention it made a stop in Anchorage, AK before coming here.

It did come from Shanghai though

Ah that makes more sense, still a really cool flight tho

Anchorage makes me laugh. Without the freight it would never be nearly as busy of an airport. The location and long runways makes it a perfect stop over from aircraft coming from Asia to the U.S. and since the demand for freight between China, Japan, and Korea to the United States is so strong, it makes a lot of planes fly the routes. But that’s quite a long flight. Anchorage allows for airlines to save millions of dollars by allowing aircraft to stop in anchorage and refuel and not have to load significantly more fuel on board to make the entire journey.

Well with the taxiway being lower than the runway, it looks like it doesn’t have landing gears, but they are there

I kinda don’t see what’s funny 😂

It does save airlines a lot of money, allows connections that would otherwise never happen, it helped the first transpacific, and Europe to Asia flights get started

@Populeux_Music @Rilej_aviation Did we predict the future by doing sort of the same thing? Coincidence I THINK NOT
