Here's a fun one out of Brasil - SAVA flew for TNT (among a few other customers) back in the 1990's. They had 2 "leased" 703F's and 2 company liveried 721F's. One 707 was leased (or operated by) Skyjet. N707HT was leased from Int'l Air Leases.

Sorry did not realise you already had some flights for SAVA Cargo 707s.
Well, give it a few weeks, my friend. I have a lot of "catch up" to do with my own simulator and making some paints for my 98 plans, but I will be taking a crack at whatever paints for your late 90s cargo airlines I feel like I can handle.

“During the 1990's and early 2000's, a number of former Soviet aircraft were used by mostly unknown and anonymous operators to support the Russian shopping tourism to the U.A.E. In many cases, the cargo was carried together with the passengers in the aircraft's cabin simply loaded on the seats.” - Little blurb that I found in my internet research on these guys. This is a rather short but apt description of what Elf Air did as a company and the customers it catered to. Based out of UUBW in Moscow, they leased their aircraft to whoever needed the lift. PRAGMA Manufacturing, Sankuru Air Services, Kampuchea Airlines, Air Charter Service, Stolichniy Bank of Savings, The United Nations, and many more used Elf Air aircraft to get their customers or their freight to where they/it needed to go. Flightplans are semi-fictional and are based off of photos I found on the web. Some of the Il-76's are just spare FP's from several Avsim.su files I had lying around. Most of the paints are all done too and are on the way to the Google Drive - *Fleet's Ramp*. The Stolichniy Bank jet (RA-65099) is beyond my talent scope right now. It's up for grabs if anyone wants to paint it.
A little freight-runner airline from Canada. Little is known about this airline as well - other than, sadly, their safety record. FP's are semi-fictional and based on several online resources. (We really need a good G-159 AI model... )
Electra Aviation had several DC-10's - both in PAX and Cargo configurations. This set of FP's is for the freighter aircraft: SX-CVC/N331FV. Chartered by Air Charter Service, she was seen in MAN, ZRH, OST, BRU, & KWI. SHJ was also a hot spot for other ACS chartered aircraft so I based it there. On Sundays, I threw in a charter to NBO so the plane didn't eat up ramp space in SHJ for a day.
Paraphrasing RZJets: Pamir Air was the first private airline founded in Afghanistan. Charter operations commenced in May of 1995. In its early years, Pamir Air used Antonov An-12's on more domestic routes. A Boeing 707-320F was used for flights farther afoot. Operations were suspended because of the obvious political and social strife that arose around the early 2000's. (Flightplans are semi-fictional.)

This particular jet saw all sorts of nefarious activities until the Yugo AF pulled it over on its way into ZAG. Turns out it was smuggling arms out of Africa, against int'l rules set in place at the time. It was bought by the Afghani airline Balkh and re-reg'ed "YA-GAF" after a brief stint in the Yugo AF's "ownership." It was ferried to OST where it languished and was eventually scrapped in 2004.

Operated for the likes of Tristar Air Cargo, Khalifa Cargo(?), Race Cargo, & the Red Cross. In fact, one of the FP's below is off of Avsim, originally meant for the Tristar Air Cargo A300F. These air cargo companies leased aircraft or chartered them when necessary, hence why the schedules are a bit hairbrained. FP's are semi-representative.

jetstar: Thin paint on the tail. They never did anything with the lower blue though. It was just homage to BOAC's original 747-136 when it was retired. Its a pity is was not preserved. Then again, BA would not pay to upkeep the 707 at Cosford, which was scrapped.
