THE LAST ACTIVE MD11` s of Lufthansa Cargo - MD11 DEPARTURE during perfect light (4K)

  • Published on:  4/6/2021
  • Last week I was able to film a few Lufthansa Cargo MD11 Freighters at Frankfurt. As most of you probably already know 2021 is the last year of operations of the MD11 in the fleet of Lufthansa Cargo. The aging Triholer will be replaced with more modern Boeing 777` s which is quite sad in my opinion because the McDonnell Douglas Md11 is one of my favorite aircrafts. That` s why is was quite happy to see three different LH Cargo MD11` s within three hours at Frankfurt that day. I can` t imagine visiting Frankfurt Airport without seeing at least one MD11 in Lufthansa colours but that will be reality in 2022.

    I was quite lucky with the weather. After filming during dull weather almost the entire day the sun just showed up in the right moment and I was able to film the departure of this Lufthans Cargo MD11 on runway 18 during splendid weather. All LH Cargo aircrafts I filmed that day were already wearing the new Lufthansa coat which looks quite stunning on the Triholer in my opinion.

    Most of these aircrafts will end up in the fleet of UPS. Luckily they are still quite useful in the cargo market and that` s why most of the LH Cargo aircrafts will find a new home with other cargo companies like UPS, Fedex and Western Global.

    Thanks for watching, new videos every tuesday and friday.
