Looking back: A300-600 P-to-F conversion

I hope you enjoy this as much as I did!
(Michael Carter - Editor: Aero Pacific Flightlines)

The next generation of narrowbody passenger-to-freighter conversions has been a major focus for us lately, as conversion houses launch P-to-F programs for the Airbus A320/321 and Boeing 737NG Families, and the day of the 737 Classic draws to a close.

But there has also been a resurgence of interest in widebody freighters lately, and on the conversion side of things, development of the A330 P-to-F is underway at EFW, As with the new narrowbody conversions, the arrival of the A330 conversion program means the end of the line for the A300-600 P-to-F.

That day is not quite upon us yet, and there are still a few A300-600s in Dresden, either in, or awaiting conversion for Chinese all-cargo carrier Uni-Top.

So we thought it appropriate to salute the freighter that has for many years been the workhorse of the express industry, offer this video for your weekend viewing pleasure.
