Last week’s Dubai Airshow passed without any orders for full freighters, but that doesn’t mean freighters were absent. In fact, there were three converted freighters on static display that attracted significant attention.

The largest was the Boeing 777-300ERSF, converted by Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) as part of an order that was originally placed by GECAS. The lessor is now part of AerCap, of course, so it was AerCap that arranged the tours inside the vast cabin which ran a blue carpet almost over the full length of the aircraft. AerCap reported lots of interest from potential operators who wanted to see the aircraft in Dubai.
