UPS Bringing 747-8 to Oshkosh
July 1, 2021 – UPS is bringing one of its “Queens of the Skies” to EAA AirVenture Oshkosh this month when its new Boeing 747-8F arrives at Wittman Regional Airport on July 27.
The 747-8F will touch down in Oshkosh mid-morning on Tuesday, July 27, and be open for viewing that afternoon, as well as all day on Wednesday, July 28, and Thursday morning, July 29. The aircraft will depart Oshkosh prior to the July 29 afternoon air show and the arrival of the U.S. Air Force Special Operations Command aircraft.
The UPS 747-8F also fits well with the Salute to Humanitarian Aviation that is part of this year’s fly-in. UPS has delivered more than 400 million COVID-19 vaccines and 30 million tons of personal protective equipment used by health care workers during the pandemic.
The 747-8F has a hinged nose section that flips up to allow extra large or extra long shipments to be loaded and unloaded. This feature will allow for acceptance and transport of large cargo and freight shipments.
