Ex United J41 @ INV

I flew up to INV last Thursday and noticed there was an ex UA Jetstream 41 parked on a disused runway without any props (possibly engines - it was hard to tell from a distance).

Flying back yesterday I saw that it had been joined by a Jetstream J32 that was mostly white.

Does anybody know who owns these aircraft?

Also, there were two French Navy Hawkeyes operating - one tookoff at around 13:30 directly after another one landed - is this kind of operation normal for INV?

I wonder if Highland will use the J41 on the very popular CWL-VLY route that could do with a larger aircraft than the J31?

Unless highland change their agreement with the Welsh Assembly, then the operating aircraft will remain as a J31.
The Assembly fund for 18 seats only per flight. Even if a J41 did operate, it would be restricted to carrying 18 passengers.
I think This agreement is in place for at least another year or 2.

Recent surveys, and passenger figures has proved how popular the route is and that passengers are willing to pay more than the subsidised fare.

There have also been several articles criticising the subsidy saying it is over subsidised in comparision to other forms of transport.

Highland airways are not the most ambitious of airlines, they take regional subsidies and do nothing with them. Business wise, is a safe move. But potential wise is somewhat lacking. They could make a real success of this route, and quite a nice profit.

Quoting Vfw614 (Reply 4):

They have one from GLA/EDI to Filton/Plymouth I think for either the MoD or security services as well as some BAe ones from Warton that I think T3 have done in the past
