Flight plan is filed as N54AN (previous reg.). Was due to depart on a test flight 1hr ago so keep an eye on the flight trackers. Good luck!

Egad!
...I'm at a place that limits what websites can be viewed, apparently the flight trackers are no-nos.... so someone tell me, where's it going/coming from, and why??

Where is this one coming from, surely its not part of the 15 A330 order they placed?

This is cn 054, ex Aer Lingus, Air Algerie and Air Madrid. Was returned to lessors after Air Madrid shut down and was ferried to CWF. Short term solution I suppose before they start taking delivery of their own planes. Engines, per another thread, won't be matching.

Red is such a great colour on aircraft, makes them seem so alive and eager to fly  Smile

Interesting, thanks for the info.......wasnt SN supposedly interested in this airplane for expansion? There were rumors to that effect a couple of months ago since this early build A333 has everything in common with SN's A333s......all were originally intended for Air Inter.

What an unusual airplane to turn up at MSY!

...my first thought would be that it's ferrying to MSY for an intercontinental departure--- but CWF's runway is actually slightly longer

Well, it flew over from Lake Charles this morning; never landed but made a low approach for runway 10 and then back to CWF

Filed as two seperate flights but it was just one round trip flight from CWF
