Hi, haven't posted here for a long while, but been lurking a bit  Smile.

I was very surprised and impressed to see an AN-22 fly over my house today, caught it a bit late thus could nay see the livery. Was headed South though. Any ideas who it was??
It didn't head east, which is why I was a bit confused...

The aircraft was an AN12 belonging to Air Sofia (Reg UN11012) delivering a new 737 Engine (not sure who for) and then taking the engine it replaced away. The flight was to/from Belgrade.

Cheers

The engine was for a JAT 737 which had an engine fire on departure a few days back.

Ahhh, interesting. Thanks.

So the JAT a/c stayed at LHR after the engine fire? Must have been damaged suffieciently in that case.

A twin is not permitted to take off on only one engine, even if it is empty where as a quad is permitted to operate a 3 engine ferry to get it back to home base for repairs.

What about a tri-jet ?

Not 100% sure on that, I'm sure a 2 engine ferry is possible on a tri as you would still have some power if you were extremely unlucky and lost another one on departure however for obvious reasons if that happend on a twin......

Although once when I was performing an engine start on a Balkan Tu-154, engine No. 2 would not start for some reason. We had already started the no.1, and carried on and started no.3. The Captain opens his window, and shouts "ahh it ok - we go on 2" and off they went. That flight was also full of passengers. Being a new Ramp Tramp at the time, I just thought that was a normal thing to happen as the Capt seemed fairly chilled about it - I now know it isn't !!. I hope they managed to get that no.2 started before they got to the end of the runway - after all they were departing HMS Leeds/Bradford !!.
