United Parcel Service (UPS) Airlines has received the first of 13 converted Boeing MD-11 freighters it agreed to buy in 1999. Boeing is managing the acquisition of the ex-airline aircraft, which are being converted by Singapore Technologies Aerospace. The first aircraft, an ex-VASP example, was converted by ST Aero's subsidiary, SASCO in Singapore. Two more MD-11Fs are to be delivered to UPS later this month.
