Qatar Cargo gets its first 748F

Qatar Cargo has taken delivery of its first 748F A7-BGB. The aircraft was first flown back in January and was in effect a white tail, having been ordered then cancelled by Atlas Air as an option.

The need to break the blockade imposed by its neighbours, now running into its fifth month has sparked a search for almost any air freighter the country can find to help relieve the situation. A second 748F is expected shortly.
