Samaritan's Purse N782SP

Samaritan's Purse DC-8-72CF, N782SP (c/n 46013, l/n 427), has made a stop at HNL this morning, as it arrived from Shah Amanat International Airport, Chittagong, Bangladesh [CGP] as NSP8. The Christian charity flew from Greensboro, NC [GSO] to CGP (via Shannon, Ireland [SNN]), to fly in relief supplies to Bangladesh to aid Rohingya refugees from Myanmar. N782SP is now on its way back to GSO.

46013 was originally built as a DC-8-62CF, delivered to Finnair in January 1969 as OH-LFR "Paavo Nurmi"; and re-registered as OH-LFT, three months later. In November 1981, it was acquired by the Armée de l'Air (French Air Force) as F-RAFG, and was modified to a DC-8-72CF in June 1982. In June 2005, it was acquired by Cargo Aircraft Management, and leased to its Air Transport International (ATI) subsidiary as N721CX. In March 2015, Samaritan's Purse bought this DC-8-72, and registered as N782SP.
