Heavylift is the operator of the world's only flying Short Belfast. A second Belfast was being refurbished at
Southend Airportfor delivery to Australia. Both of these aircraft were operated by namesake company HeavyLift, a former UK-based major freight airline specialising in outsize cargo. During 2006 work was also underway at Bournemouth Airportto refurbish another ex-HeavyLift aircraft, the unique Conroy CL-44-0; however it has been reported on various aviation internet message boards that this aircraft will not now be delivered. A feature of the airline is that most of its aircraft are not registered in Australia, but in the Philippines. Although the main base is Brisbane, when not flying the aircraft are usually parked at Cairns Airport.
The company has plans in place to acquire one
McDonnell Douglas DC-10and a B747-200F wet leased from Kalitta may join the fleet for routes to Shanghaiand on to Europe. [http://www.heavyliftcargo.com/] [http://www.iasc.gov.au]
