Thai Airways looks like it is coming through with a 747-300. Not sure why, but should be nice to see.

Any info on that TG 747-300 flight? Maybe it's being retired or converted?

A 727-200F, N315NE, is scheduled to stopover here, it's been @ OAK for the past few days.

There was an Air New Zealand 744 flying from KOA to HNL as ANZ6083, anyone know if this was a charter? I'm guessing that the 744 will overnight @ HNL, since KOA lacks RON space.

It is a charter. We received it this morning. It originated in SYD and is a charter for some big Amway convention on the Kohala Coast. I have to go in later tonight to receive a TZ LAX flight for this same convention.

Both flights, including the NZ 744, will depart KOA on 12 Oct.

It seems that Miami Air Int'l has leased(?) a 757-200, N526NA from Ryan Int'l Air, though it's still in Ryan colors. It's here @ HNL as a team charter for New Mexico State University ... see blog.

Does anyone know if this is a one-off lease? Or is Miami Air leasing this jet long-term?

It left as ACA7061 with a destination of GRU, just like the other one. I missed getting a picture of it, but I did see it take off and it was a white fuselage with a blue tail.

A quick question. I read that when the Thunderbirds performed a couple of months ago that there aerobatic box affected the flight paths out of HNL. Anyone know how it affected the departures off of 8R and 8L. I know that they were scheduled to fly in front of Waikiki. Also did it affect the inbounds to HNL from the mainland as they normally fly over the top of Waikiki at about 8000 descending to 6000 feet on downwind for 8L.

Just curious how it was all handled.

AQ's leased 738 (PH-HZO) from Transavia is in HNL. The fuselage is still in Transavia colors, only with small AQ titles. The bird of paradise on the tail is a decal. If you look closely at the leading edge of the verticle stabalizer, you can see the blue and green hues of Transavia's colors.

Photo is on the rarebirds blog.

Shandong Airlines is taking delivery of B-5347 (737-75N[W]), due here midday.

Hainan Airlines is taking delivery of B-5337 (737-84P[W]), also due midday.

UPS has an MD-11 coming from ROS. Looks like a ferry flight to Singapore for freighter conversion.

Yes it is, although I don't have any information on its rotation through the system.

N748AL is being rotated around the Hawai‘i - West coast routes, except for the OGG-SMF run which will be done by PH-HZO. THe goal is to have every Hawai‘i & west coast destination see "Koholalele".

CA's B-5342 is here on its delivery flight as CCA58.



Side note ...
Anyone ever notice that none of the China-bound 737s passing through HNL has never had a reg# ending in 4? The kanji symbol for the number 4 is bad luck (death) for Chinese & Japanese. I know there are no 4th floors in buildings in Japan ... like there aren't 13th floors here in the US. China, I'm not sure. Just something to ponder upon ...

25 Bluewave 707 : Nope ... haven't seen it pop-up on flight tracking sites ... thought its still @ BFI yet.
26 RobK : It was due to leave Thursday but I've since found out that it's still at BFI. R
