    Guys,
    If your phone just departed from Zhengzhou, China on UPS, it is on this plane, it is going to depart from Zhengzhou International Airport to Anchorage, Alaska.

    This is the only Anchorage bound flight scheduled form Zhengzhou as of now!
    Go to this link!

    It is Flight GTI8528 via Atlas Air!

    Just putting in my 2 cents...

    I'm guessing that this is it as this seems to be the only departure from Zhengzhou to Anchorage in a while and it is really close to the 5:15 time on UPS.

    Just thought I'd pass this on!

    My phone's on this flight too! But I have my doubts about this picture... I know you got it from flight aware but still - I wonder why they put the dreamliner into service for iPhones - normally it carries B787 fuselage parts. I can't imagine why Boeing would let it be used for UPS flights.

    Remember, the 5:15 departure on UPS.com was when the boxes were physically scanned, so the flight is going to depart soon...

    I'm seeing from multiple sources that 5Y-8258 departed at 5:10. How could they have scanned them after departure? Unless they had a portable scanner, scanned the pallet that our phones are on, came back to the office, and uploaded the scans into the system a little later?

    Wow.
    Doesn't surprise me that people can find this info though.

    Exactly - There is no way that the scanners are live on their system anyways. Right?

    That is a Boeing Dreamlifter. It is operated by Boeing to deliver 787 parts to assembly plants.

    It is most certainly not delivering iPhones.

    Is anything else in the post true?

    I note you said "phat" versus "fat".

    The latter goes to the Airbus 300-600ST: the Beluga.

    Airbus makes good aircraft, but bloody hell, if this doesn't look like a cross between an A300, Herman Munster, and a Conehead.

    BL.

    In the description it shows:

    Boeing 747-400

    I think it is the same as the one a pilot publish a photo in this site.
