N544UP (cn AT-544) An interesting Metro (Expediter) of Ameriflight pulls up into its parking space next to a Kitty Hawk Convair on the cargo ramp. I find it interesting in that the brown cheatline appears to be in UPS brown, and the registration ends with UP, leading one to believe in some sort of UPS connection somewhere in its past, although I can find no evidence of such. Spring 1998
