UPS (but not Boeing) revealed the delivery timeline for the order.
The mysterious Volga-Dnepr/AirBridgeCargo that was announced at the Paris and Farnborough air shows for up to 20 747-8Fs still hasn’t been firmed up. Only four are listed on the Boeing website this year.
Iran Air will order four 747-8s under the reported terms of the agreement with Boeing. The US government blessed the deal recently.
The first of three 747-8s for the presidential fleet is now scheduled for delivery in October 2017, it’s believed.
