Original Aircraft Skin / Aviationtag / Boeing 747-400 Lufthansa
The Boeing 747-400 sporting registration D-ABTE and manufacturer serial number (MSN) 24966 left the factory doors for Lufthansa in April 1991 and was christened “Sachsen-Anhalt”.
After 21 successful years, D-ABTE was retired on 6 August 2012, initially being parked in Michigan at Oscoda-Wurtsmith Airport until 29 May 2013. There, the US cargo airline Kalitta Air finally took ownership of the plane. With its new registration N769CK, the Boeing 747-400 no longer took to the air, but continued to belong to the airline until September 2021, which used it for spare parts.
