I started looking at the daily pictures on the Skyline Photography web site and I started to wonder if an Airbus has ever landed at Boeings Paine Field. Since TLS is also a commercial airport Boeings must have landed there.

Just wondering?

I landed several times in a B737 in TLS! And we didnt get shot or banned or anything Big grin

And I guess Paine Field has seen Airbusses as well...

At least on of DJ´s E170s landed at Boeing Field on its way to Australia from Brazil.

Talking about SQ´s A340, what did Boeing do with them?

Considering there is a large 3rd party maintenance provider there I would suspect that a few Airbus products have had work done there. Just a hunch.

Maybe I've got this all wrong....but I recall that Boeing had taken the SQ 340's as a trade-in for 777's and then sold them off....recall seeing pics of the 340's, but don't remember if it was at Paine field....

Believe most of these went to HAM when they were returned to Boeing. PAE didn't see them.

For a long time, there were hardly ever any Airbus flights into Boeing Field, but sports team charters by then America West changed that. There was even a visit by the Beluga A300-600ST back in 1998 or '99.

But it wasnt easy to get a new B737 tire in TLS! A friend of mine had some trouble with a B737 tire in TLS and it took forever until a new one was brought from FRA, because - surprise - no B737 tires available in TLS Big grin

Air Toulouse with 737s was based at............TLS.

Air France made overhaul for Boeing 727 and 737 at Toulouse Montaudran.Yes it's not the airport where the Airbus factories are (TLS = Toulouse Blagnac) , but at the other part of the city.

Yes and it was promptly eaten by a 777 and craped out for parts.

Change that to "is a visitor" because G-BOAG is at the Museum of Flight.

No.. there is a law on the books that states Airbus aircraft are not allowed to land there.....!! Big grin

TLS is also a commercial airport served by a few airlines.......Boeing/Paine is really there just to support Boeing. I'm sure with a major repair station being there the answer is yes............. but just look at the photo data base... nearly all of the photos are Boeing aircraft being delivered. There are very few transiate aircraft

At least airliners...although PAE hosts at least one company that does major airframe checks for WN (and it's not Boeing...  Wink ).

Also, PAE and BFI are both very important GA fields, as is RNT...and you will find quite a few transient aircraft on the GA ramps at both fields.

Obviously they have at TLS, but how about XFW? XFW is pretty much the equivalent of PAE. Do PAE and XFW have any single scheduled flight?
A.net photo database at XFW seems to only show Airbuses there.



When I doubt... go running!

A ton of landings have been made by Airbus aircraft in BFI!
You can see them in the photo database.
There are some United Airlines, America West Airlines, AirTran Airways, and Frontier Airlines Airbus aircraft pictures in there!
Air Canada Jetz were there, charters and UPS planes are there too!
