Not as endangered as the A380. The 747-800 will likely continue to fly as a freighter for the next 20 years plus.

It is interesting that when you search by aircraft type to see what’s in the air now the 747-400 is 10th on the list and you can add 37 more 747-8 to that number. I am sure most are freighter but a few are still scheduled passenger flights. I think the 747 will be flying for many years to come.

I wish journalism would research it's findings before posting them, or at least not include certain criteria if the are unsure. Yes it's a small point but Volga-Dnepr does not own nor fly the AN-225

Yes, it is a small point - but the article refers to the AN-124, not the AN-225 as you mentioned. Volga-Dnepr operates a fleet of 12 Antonov-124-100 aircraft. :)

The article has been edited..yes Volga operates only the 124-100, but earlier it had, and thankful I saved it, "Moscow-based Air Bridge Cargo (ABC) has 17 747Fs -- four 747-400Fs and 13 newer 747-8Fs. As part of the Volga-Dnepr Group -- known for its massive Ukrainian AN-124 and AN-225 ex-military airlifters -- ABC's 747s are flying 15 hours a day."
