Cripes, don't we have any DHN spotters on here? That's been where all the action is in the last two weeks.  Sad

I hope to get over to DHN sometime in the next couple of shifts. There are 5 or so ATA 738s too.

Glad you started this, though I think it should be retitled along the lines of where all the defunct airlines planes are going.

738s and 752s of TZ's are going to LCQ, DC-10s to MZJ and 753s to VCV. I am not sure where the L-1011s are?

Who exactly flies these planes? Are they former Aloha pilots or pilots from Boeing or the leasing companies?

In my history with two BKs, the leasing companies normally hire pilots from the affected airline to fly the aircraft to their new temporary homes

Interesting that they'd be allowed to file the flight plan using their defunct carrier...you'd think they'd be using "Boeing Nxxxxx" as the tail number under these instances.

No reason not to-the AQ certificate is still active.

There is a PEMCO facility there. I am sure it's checks, etc for the lessor. They work on DC-9s, 737s of all series and A-319s at least. I am sure they do much more.

It appears small from the air, but apparently they can get 6 737s in the hanger. I guess it's relative, but it doesn't even look that big.

- I drive through Dothan a couple times a year. I didn't even know there was an airport in that town. Nice little city though, everyone has been friendly when I stop in there.

Aloha still exists. They just ceased operations, but the certificate is still there. Defunct carriers don't disappear when they cease operations. The company does stay around for a while. Sometimes the operating certificate is one of the most valuable assets that the airline holds.



If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

Contract pilots fly these aircraft for the owner or leasing companies. The airline probably has nothing to do with the ferry flights.  old

Most of the 752s are actually going to VQQ. N514AT & N517AT are the only two 752s that are going to LCQ. The 738s are about split between LCQ/DHN. Both L1011s are in VCV.



ATA - an honestly different airline.

Looks like the Babcock and Brown aircraft (N518, 519, 520, 522AT) will become freighters as VQQ is primarily where Precision Conversions does their 752 cargo conversions with FlightStar Aircraft Services. 514 is owned by Macquarie Bank and 517 by VX Capital.

ILFC has long term lease return agreements with PEMCO and TIMCO hence the DHN and LCQ locations.

All 3 "airworthy"L-1011-500s are in VCV. 164 had a fresh C check, but never entered service. 163 had headed to VCV to swap APUs with 164 before the shutdown. 162 was retired in February, but remains intact.

All DC-10-30s were leased from VX Capital and 701, 702, 705 are all in MZJ. I am not sure what will happen to 706 as it was stuck in LEJ needing an engine before the shutdown. It was supposed to get one and head home, but I have no idea about that now.



35 years of American Trans Air/ATA Airlines, 1973-2008. A great little airline that will not be soon forgotten.

All TZ aircraft has now been returned to their owners. The sole exception is DC-10 N706TZ that still sits in LEJ and is planned to be ferried to MZJ via BGR on Apr 30. That will be the last TZ/AMT flight ....

Just heard on the 6pm News (KHON) that the last AQ 737-700 at HNL (the Wyland Plane) will be leaving HNL at 8pm tonight. They said that the leasing company that owns the plane flew in their own pilots.

That's strange. They just moved it to the AQ cargo ramp from the taxiway yesterday and it wasn't in the hangar nor parked in front of the hangar when I left work a couple of hours ago. All the other 73Gs were in the hangar for a couple of days before leaving. I'll have to look when I go to work tomorrow morning.

I can vouch for the 3 L-1011's being here, they just were all put into the corner of the ramp adjacent to the Victorville Aerospace hanger. Also all 4 753's have been here for almost 2 weeks now, I was able to catch all 4 of them landing here but was not able to snap photos as I forgot my camera while transiting between my house and ATC school. It's sad indeed and I am not sure what is going to happen to the 753's as they have all been completely taped up and the 3 L-1011's just keep getting "played with".
