Cathay Pacific Airways on Monday took delivery of the first of six converted freighters in Xiamen, China.
The 747-400BCF is also the first conversion Boeing certified to the new U.S. Federal Aviation Authority Changed Product rule.
Cathay Pacific ordered this and five others in January 2004 with an option for six more. The modification was completed at Taikoo Aircraft Engineering in Xiamen in September. Boeing test pilots flew the plane starting in October.
