Why deliver it to India via ATL? The same a/c was photographed in IST on May 25th. I wonder how it ended up in ATL?

An airplane might disappoint any pilot but it'll never surprise a good one.

Perhaps ASA is looking at ordering some of the 500 series of the ATR-72? There's been rumors for several years now that they are looking to replace their current ATR-72 fleet. Now if a Dash 8 Q400 is seen @ ATL in the near future.....

Possibly new delivery. Note the letters 'KE at the nose wheel. Will be VT-DKE, I guess. As per the DGCA (Directorate General of Civil Aviation) register the last Air Deccan ATR 72-212A was registered as VT-DKD.

It would be going the wrong way if it were a delivery flight, since ATRs are built in France. Like I mentioned previously, it has been rumored that ASA is looking to replace their older 72s with either the newer ATR 72-212A or the Dash 8-Q400 (IMHO, if the rumors are true, it would make more sense to go for the ATR 72-212As since they are already an ATR operator). They cut their fleet slightly when they returned the ex-Mount Cook 72s last year. The oldest ATR-72s currently in their fleet were delivered back in May/June of 1993. The ex-Mount Cook ones were actually newer than the rest of the fleet, being built between 1995 & 1996

This aircraft departed ATL at 1730EDT this afternoon (15 June 06). I was lucky enough to get a shot early this morning. Here is a shot I posted on my website:

Any idea what happened to a new DN ATR aircraft which was damaged in a bad landing in BLR?

Going on this premise, one could assume it was here for a "look-see" visit ...

That's a long way to bring a turboprop for a "look-see" ...

What's the difference between this newer version and the older versions?

Main difference are the engines, which provide more thrust, consume less, and IIRC, also produce less noise.

I agree. When it departed yesterday, it departed in a northeasterly direction. Seeing Air Deccan in ATL was about as weird as seeing the Vega An24 here a couple of years ago.

Actually the new prop has 6 blades.



Exceptions confirm the rule.
