Saw this airline running a B742 into John F. Kennedy Airport in New York from Leige, Belgium. Wondering if anybody has any info on them? Flight number is 941 and the go by the callsign “Cal”.

Using Torsten Hoff’s info, CAL Cargo Airlines has 2 747-200’s and ICL941 appears to arrive @ JFK around 2200 EDT and operates to JFK almost every Saturday (xxxxx6x).

Note the link to ICL941 is not a permalink.
