DHL Aero Expreso (Panama City) is replacing its older Boeing 727-200 freighter fleet with recently-converted Boeing 757-200 freighters.

The first to be delivered was 757-27A HP-1810DAE (msn 29611) on August 4, 2010.

The second, ex-FAT 757-27A HP-1910DAE (msn 29607) arrived on September 22, 2010.  The conversion work was performed for Precision Conversions, LLC. This second 15 pallet Boeing 757-200PCF freighter was delivered to Aerolease Aviation, LLC. The Pratt & Whitney powered 757 represents the second of three 757-200PCFs to be converted for Aerolease under a multi-aircraft deal announced in April 2010. The freighter includes a weight upgrade option that can bring the total payload up to 80,000 pounds. HP-1910DAE was leased by Aerolease to DHL Aero Expreso.

The conversion was completed at Flightstar Aircraft Services in Jacksonville, Florida. Precision Conversions has re-delivered a total of 26, full fifteen pallet position 757-200PCF conversions to operators in Europe, North and South America, Africa, China, and India.
