It seems that N828BA has been used for flight testing a durability upgrade for the GEnx-2B/P engine. For that purpose the aircraft was ferried to Boeing’s rapid modification centre in San Antonio in Feb/March of this year. The test are completed and the engine has been removed mid March.

The first factory new upgraded engines are scheduled for mid 2018.

See following article :
https://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/ge-completes-tests-on-genx-2b-upgrades-for-747-8-446969/

Highlights :

- four core engine improvements
- 1) the fuel nozzles
- 2) the second generation of the twin-annular, pre-swirl (TAPS II) combustor
- 3) the first stage rotorblades of the high-pressure turbine.
- 4) the first stage nozzles of the high pressure turbine

The improvements will increase time on wing for the engine.

L/N 1547, N610UP was ferried to Portland (KPDX) for paint at May 01th, see :
https://flightaware.com/live/flight/BOE535/history/20180501/2230Z/KPAE/KPDX

N610UP delivery was original scheduled for 07/15/2018 but the aircraft will probably be delivered ahead of schedule due the present capacity restraints at UPS.

VQ-BSK I think is still for sale, AFAIK no one purchased it yet.
A4O-HMS is a replacement for A4O-OMN as a air transporter for The Sultan of Oman.

I had read that BSK would go to Oman...
Any predictions for the HMS to be ready and delivered? He's been riding the interior since 12/2012.

Thank you.

And according to both FR24 and FlightAware, it ferried from BFI>SKF over three months ago on March 11th! Interesting!

N612UP is the 8th 748F for UPS in a row, and the next 748F to leave the factory will again be for UPS, before a single freighter will be built for Air Bridge Cargo inbetween. Never before have so many 747s been built for a single operator without a break inbetween. The last 748F not for UPS (also for Air Bridge) has been delivered almost one year ago.

What? In the middle of a serious economical crisis the Turkish autocrat acquires such a decent new jet? The A340 isn´t enough of a trumpet?
However, it´ll remain to look good if it will get a repaint in the A340 style.

There's a sort of alliance in the brewing, between Qatar (who desperately needs friends) and Turkey, whose president is not above accepting a token of gratitude on a scale like this.

The second 747-8/BBJ completion has been confirmed by AMAC and will be ready in Q2 2020, see pdf page 3/8 : https://www.amacaerospace.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/amac_bro_2018-05_completion-and-refurbishment.pdf

The 747-8i was inducted in AMAC’s Basel completion center in February for the 20-month project, the company’s second 747-8i completion, and will feature “a unique design,” said AMAC CEO Kadri Muhiddin at EBACE 2018. Company engineers will install an overhead Aeroloft in the widebody for the undisclosed repeat customer.
