Hi everyone,

HB-AFG (ATR 72-201 F) has been sitting on the apron at SXF for about 3 months now.
Does anyone know when it will be moved again? When will be its next flight?

Thanks in advance for a brief info on this.

Are you sure it is not flying at night? That is how cargo operators like Farnair and Westair operate. They leave the outstation in the evening timed so they can reach the hub so the the freight can get sorted and put back on the aircraft. The aircraft then fly back home to the outstation, in this case SXF where it arrives early in the morning 4-5 am in time for early delivery. The few times I have observed Farnair operations they tend to keep the same aircraft to the same routes. It nakes it easier for maintenance to plan ahead.

Thank you, Lars.
I am not sure whether it flies at night.
Just that every morning that I come by it sits at the very same position, GPU and belt loader stand right by it the same way they were the days before.
Makes me think it is rather inactive.

This makes me think it is actually active. Why would you keep two perfectly good pieces of equipment next to an aircraft that is long-term parked?

The light at the end of tunnel turn out to be a lighted sing saying NO EXIT

Its Mode-S ID was tracked this morning under the callsign of FAH8XF, and it is likely that we have it cruising the airways every night mon thru friday, only just under the cover of darkness...
