25 / 02 / 2015
Cargolux has taken delivery of its 11th 747-8 freighter. The aircraft was named ‘City of Zhengzhou’ in honour of Cargolux’s partnership with its Chinese shareholder HNCA and its recently established Chinese hub in the Chinese city.Cargolux plans to increase its 747-8F flights between Luxembourg and Zhengzhou to multiple daily connections.On leaving Paine field airport in Washington, US, the freighter’s pilots decided to show off a little. Instead of offering the traditional wing wave (dipping each wing as a thank you to the airbase) at 2,000ft, they chose to do so immediately after take-off.
