  • [Video] I am FedEx: Classical dance from India

    I just don’t love dance but I respect dance. It allows someone to keep their body and mind free and fresh without focusing time on gym, diet and so on. When I go for dance class I really forget what the rest of the world is doing. It's just simply tap your feet and move your body as the music goes. Dance helps to make your mind fresh; after performing one feels so relaxed from deep inside...

  • Saying goodbye to the 727 aircraft

    Boeing-FedEx-727-intro.jpg For 35 years, Boeing 727 aircraft were a reliable workhorse for the world’s largest express transportation company. Now, the venerable 727 narrow-body freighter closes an enduring chapter in aviation history as FedEx becomes the last major carrier to retire the aircraft from service. The retirement is part of our aircraft modernization strategy.

    FedEx team member Al Hill was selected to jumpseat on the final revenue flight of a FedEx 727, on a route from Indianapolis to Memphis, and he shared some of his thoughts with us:

    ...People have often asked me about my "dream aircraft", and I always say it is the 727, because of its stature. Because of it, we accomplished so much. It really put Federal Express out there. I have some emotions that I didn’t think I would see the day when we wouldn’t fly them anymore...

    In 1973, I was looking for a job somewhere near the airport that was interesting and exciting. That’s when a friend of mine told me about this new company starting in Little Rock that was an airline for packages - not people. My friend sent a letter to Fred Smith to introduce me and I received a letter, along with an application for employment, from Mr. Smith, telling me that they were indeed thinking of expanding the operations to Memphis.

    On April 17, 1973, 14 French Dassault Falcon planes took off from Memphis International Airport and delivered 186 packages to 25 U.S. cities along the east coast. This first flight not only marked the beginning of FedEx Express but also the beginning of the express industry as a whole. Forty years on and just look how far we’ve come as a company.
