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...

According to my track number it's already in anchorage. Is this for people not getting their phones til after the 19th?

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?

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.
