Pacific Air Cargo's N703CK

Kalitta Air has painted N703CK (c/n 24226, l/n 809), a 747-412F, in the Pacific Air Cargo special livery, and is now doing the LAX-HNL run (CKS368/369).

24226 was originally delivered to Singapore Airlines in September 1990 as 9V-SMG. In July 2004, it was purchased by Air India as VT-AIE "Mamallpuram". In May 2007, Boeing Aircraft Holdings acquired 24226, and converted to a freighter, and six months later, sold to Aircastle, who leased it to Martinair Holland as PH-MPR. In November 2012, Aircastle leased this 747-412F to Air Atlanta Icelandic as TF-AMF. From January 2013 to October 2015, it was subleased to Saudi Arabian Airlines; and from October 2015 to November 2016, subleased to Air Bridge Cargo. It was returned to Aircastle, and stored at MCI. Jet Midwest purchased this airliner in February 2017 as N262JM, and sold it nine months later to Kalitta Air. It was re-registered as N703CK in February 2018.
