Korean Air Cargo's HL7374

Our July edition of "HNL RareBirds Classic" takes us back to November 2004, and this Korean Air Cargo MD-11F. HL7374 (c/n 48410, l/n 495) was one of the Korean Air Cargo MD-11Fs that had seasonal twice-weekly cargo flights between ICN and HNL that operated for over a year.

HL7374 was delivered to KAL in May 1992 as passenger airliner, then converted to a freighter in August 1997. Pegasus Aviation bought this MD-11F in February 2005, then leased it to Varig LOG [LC/VLO] as PR-LGE in June 2005 for a four-year period. In January 2010, Pegasus leased 48410 to Avient Aviation [Z3/SMJ] (Zimbabwe) as Z-BVT, which has since been placed in storage at ZRH as of February 2013, as the airline ceased operations two months later.
