Remarks: A Kalitta classic making a heavy early morning departure from 07L. I can think of only a few other planes that look better than a classic in this kind of light. N704CK (c/n 22299 as the reg was subsequently reused) overran runway 20 in Brussels & broke into several pieces after a rejected takeoff due to a bird strike but thankfully there were no fatalities. The aircraft was written off. This was originally delivered to China Airlines Cargo in 1980.
Remarks: Vision Air of Pakistan has taken delivery of this 32 years old aircraft to operate cargo flights, albeit in all white cs... It is seen here completing a flight from Kabul, Afghanistan. Ex JL JA8151, Southern Air N740SJ, JL JA8937, Orient Thai HS-ORB, MK Airlines G-MKJA. It was stored at MSE since June 2009. New reg to the DB
