Boeing’s 20th 747-8 Delivery Wears Panalpina Livery
Purchase, New York-based Atlas will operate the new plane on behalf of Swiss freight company Panalpina, whose livery is painted on the new jet. It also marks the first time Panalpina has had its livery painted on an aircraft. A second 747-8F yet to be delivered will also wear the Panalpina livery.
The plane, registered N850GT, is the fourth 747-8F delivered to Atlas. Three earlier deliveries are on lease to Global Supply Systems, which hauls cargo on behalf of British Airways. Atlas has a total of nine 747-8Fs on order.
There are now 16 Boeing 747-8 Freighters in the sky. Three 747-8 Intercontinentals have been delivered to VIP customers and one 747-8 Intercontinental has entered airline service with Lufthansa.
