Videos: Boeing Freighters at Bangalore – AeroLogic 777F, Singapore Airlines Cargo 744F

Due to its lack of a port coupled with high value addition industry, Bangalore ships, as a percentage of industrial output, more cargo by air, than any other major Indian city.
Some weekend spotting videos of freighters at Bengaluru International Airport for your Monday enjoyment. The Boeing 777F of DHL and Lufthansa Cargo joint-venture Aerologic which features the huge and beautiful GE90-115B engines, and the Boeing 747-400F of Singapore Airlines Cargo, still the queen of the skies. This is an original 747 freighter, identified by the short upper deck. The Boeing Converted Freighters (BCF) will have the traditional stretched upper deck of the passenger aircraft. Observe the dust the outboard engines kick-up when throttled up.

Do keep in mind each of these planes can carry about 100 metric tonnes of payload cargo. Sorry for the shakes. I am still learning the art of videography using my Nikon D7000.
