Say good bye to Warsaw MD guys....we even had a send off! Fire trucks, water cannons, the works!


Fast forward not even 6 months and here we are flying WAW again. Gotta love the forward thinking and in depth planning that went into drawing down the MD.

Just wait til summer, Iíll place even money on some new hires getting ANC MD again before this is all said and done.

Probably after displacing another 10-20 off the fleet so its understaffed like the whale.

You might be right about MD ANC; they seem to be having second thoughts about shrinking the MD domicile as fast as they did, but who knows, they might pull MDs out of there tomorrow?

However, as far as WAW is concerned we were never told the 74 would be ‘taking it over’. Rather that 74 AND MD would fly there. The ceremony was just to welcome a new ups aircraft type flying into Warszawa.
Supposedly even Sydney might show up on MD schedules every now and then..

I've gathered that the 74 ANC is in an interesting situation.

Anyone know if it's likely at all the 74 wouldn't be used for the ANC domicile in the future? Honestly I'd want ANC as a base, and the 747 is also a very intriguing piece of equipment. I'm shocked anc isn't desired much. I heard somewhere it's used more than even the worldport

I would say ANC 74 is about as sure a bet as they go for the future, not going anywhere for quite a while.

Then why did they make an entire video and press release about the MD11 leaving WAW?

ANC has SDF beat on volume including all air cargo carriers combined - but, not by much. As far as UPS is concerned, worldport crushes ANC in volume/operations.
