Stansted: Giant Boeing freighter ‘giants of the sky’ line up at airport

THREE of the UK’s biggest aircraft lined up together at Stansted Airport for this first time this month.

The three British Airways Boeing 747-8 freighters, which fly British goods around the world are the biggest aircraft on the UK register and serve destinations across the world including Hong Kong, Shanghai, Chicago, Delhi, Nairobi, Madrid and Johannesburg.

British Airways World Cargo took delivery of the first of three Boeing 747-8 Freighters late last year, but it’s the first time all three have been seen at Stansted together.
