N737KT is a regular visitor here but not so an A306 dressed in FDX clothes. Fed Ex routinely uses B752 and B763 equipment here while UPS has A306 and B752 daily visitors. But this year, with the tremendous increase in the amount of on-line shopping orders from Amazon, Zulily, Panasonic, and the many other companies that have massive warehouses about 15 miles east of RNO coupled with the huge increase in the number of holiday packages being mailed, along with the priority transport of the Covid vaccine, Fed Ex has added A306 equipment to its RNO routes. And both FDX and UPS significantly increased the number of daily flights. Now that Christmas is just one week away, there will be a gradual reduction in the number of flights by both carriers and visits by A306s in Fed Ex paint should also be ending soon.

I was with FedEx when they bought the Airbus 300 Freighters. Originally they want 767s but it was a five year wait at the time so they went with the Bus. My office was next to the engineer that head up the program and he and I would talk about issues with the 300F such as the door placement, the slope at the aft positions, and other things. I asked him why then FedEx was buying the plane. His reply was it was like buying a new Chrysler from Lee Iacocca, it wasn't the color you wanted and didn't have the options you wanted but he gave you such a deal on the price you could not pass it up.

Also the planes are named for employees children. There is a drawing of names submitted and that is how they get there names. The name stays on the plane until it is repainted. The child gets a photo of the them and their family with the plane and a certificate. It is a great tradition....
That's fun
