EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2019: Boeing Plaza - UPS Boeing 747

The Aero Experience continues our signature year-round coverage of EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2019, sponsored by Elite Aviation, with this look at a brand-new Boeing 747-8F flown by UPS. This latest freighter version of the venerable jumbo jet can transport over 300,000 pounds of cargo, 16% more than the 747-400, 4200 miles. UPS ordered additional 747-8F models in recent years to increase it fleet capacity with a proven design as on-line order delivery demands continue to increase. The Queen of the Skies continues to prove her worth in the cargo business, and she certainly made an impression at center stage in Boeing Plaza!
