Spacepope wrote:Close. BDSF for Bedek converted models. They have delivered several -700s and are working on their -800 program. Boeing has delivered the first -800 BCF conversion and AEI, which is busy with -400s, MD-80 and CRJ-200 conversions is seemingly running way late with their -800 prototype, with the aircraft in conversion for over 10 months.
Here's last year's white paper with forecast of demand, feedstock and programs. http://www.iba.aero/wp-content/uploads/ ... g-2017.pdf
The AEI converted freighter accommodates eleven full height containers plus one AEP/AEH, a main deck payload of up to 52,000 lbs (23.5 tonnes) and has AEI's hydraulically-operated cargo door.
