  1. I lived in Macau from 2009-2019 and often saw this 747SP here in Macau. It’s great you have this website to track her and other SPs. Long ago I flew on Pan American SPs. I am currently in Macau for a visit and staying in the quarantine across from the airport. There was an Iranian 747 Cargo jet here yesterday.

  2. BLK underwent a “C” check three months ago at Lake Charles. She has been hired out for charter to Post Malone during his recent tour. The aircraft is up for sale and one interested party has already inspected her.
