Spotted this unmarked MD-11F (designation N256UP) taking off from Newark Airport in New Jersey. After doing some quick research I found out it now belongs to UPS and was apparently awaiting the new paint job.

Prior to this unmarked look the plane belonged to Varig (designation PP-VPK) as seen here -> [link] It was later flown to Singapore for the Freighter (F) conversion for use as a cargo aircraft.

Since I took this photo the plane looks like this -> [link]

I posted 2 more pics of this plane in my gallery.
This photo was taken in December 2006.

Thanks if you fave this.

Yep, spot on, UPS.
It's a shame the PAX configuration MD11 are slowly disappearing :/
With the recent Finnair service to New York replaced by the A330
KLM are still going strong, but not for much longer :(

ya those planes are aging and im thinking they are not as efficient as current models.
