I pulled this off Dragon Air's web site under careers.

They are a large airline based in Hong Kong and are looking to start flying the B-747-4F. It good be a great way to get into there operations in the US on the ground floor.

Not to leave "Eagle Heaven" but any idea on pay?

Sorry I have no idea, only this could be a possible good op for someone looking for an international job. Once you send them the resume, they decide who they send aps to. Pay could come down to how much interest they get.
