Here is a little info on the maiden voyages of 896 and 895..
Flight 896 left HKG on the 15th at 0940, local time,( gear up @ 0954 from
runway 13) weighing 847,400 lbs. Plane 8674 (N174UA) was used and it was
carrying 369,900 lbs. of fuel!!! It touched down at ORD @ 1058 and
blocked at the gate 1108 (local time) with a flight time of 14:06; it was
32 minutes early.. I don't recall the pax or cargo loads, but I do know
that the majority of the cargo system was empty and there were open
seats.
Flight 895 left ORD on the 16th at 3:48 (local) and was to be towed to
the end of runway 14R...I'm not certian if it actually was towed or
taxied under it's own power..( gear up @ 4:14 with 381,900 lbs of fuel)
Again, plane 8674 was used and this time it weighed 842,000 lbs. and had
384,500 lbs. of fuel..As I write this, it should be nearing touchdown so
I don't have final #'s..
The flight time was estimated at 15:03 and as far as cargo goes, there
was 226 bags and a little mail.. pax wise, not full.
Until it lands, this is all that I can tell you......
happy flying, jt
