I wonder if a BAe 146 with gravel kit would do the job.
Nice short runway performance, high wing...
The Embraer KC-390 would maybe be nice too, as stated by a friend above.
Embraer needs to make it civilian!
It is operated by Antonov Airlines, a subsidiary company of Antonov Design Bureau (the manufacturer)... they use it for charter operations, transporting oversized loads. Hope this helps!Jump to post
Judging by these pics of the crash site, it was NOT the Blue Panorama 734 , but the Global Air 732. Check out the vertical stabilizer livery: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/1/19/XA-UHZ_%286908943182%29.jpg/800px-XA-UHZ_%286908943182%29.jpg https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia...Jump to post
Probably because they're officially known and certified as ERJ'S :lol: Look at the certificates or type rating documents for the Embraers and you'll see why. Even fleet websites display them as ERJ's. Certified... yes Known... no, not since early 2000s. The certification type remains actually as ER...Jump to post

Nice to see Wamos Air leasing a 747 to Lufthansa for the high season.

Actually you'd be surprised, quite a few ATR's ferry through South America, the usual routing to cross the Atlantic is Praia, Cape Verde to Fortaleza, Brazil. Exactely. I'm a planespotter here in Fortaleza and many Caribbean ATRs have tech stopped here, on delivery flight. Always arriving from RAI ...Jump to post
It has been a while since the last 747-400 BCF was even converted. Asiana had a B747-400 Combi converted to full freighter last year, if I remember correctely. At Bedek in Israel. Yeah, surely the work was easier - the cargo door and half of cargo space were already there - but still is something. ...Jump to post
Not sure if already mentioned here, but Norwegian Argentina's sole B737-800 is going back to Europe after being delivered in Argentina.
People are speculating that Norwegian ARG will use A320neo instead. Weird to see the jet going back to Europe right after being delivered.
EC-MDS is the Jumbo picked for LATAM's operations. It is now sporting a different Wamos Air livery, a grey livery identical to the one used on the A330 EC-MTT. Seems to be a special livery celebrating their 15 years of operations. However, an Argentinian (or Chilean, can't remember now) aviation blo...Jump to post
All A320-100s are scrapped/stored/preserved as far as I know. None flying. 747-100: I think Iran Air Force still have them flying. Ex-TWA birds. Boeing 707: I think there are none in civilian pax/cargo operations. They only fly now as military (tankers and cargo ops). BAC 1-11: Is there any of these...Jump to post
Not sure if i'm a fan of the livery. At least it's colorful and not boring like some hideous stuff we've seen lately.
However... looks totally out of place when the airline is named Air ITALY.
Air Georgia is operating two 747-200 freighters. TransAviaExport, from Belarus, is operating a single Boeing 747-300 freighter. About 10 747SP are active as of 2018. There's a cargo carrier in Iran operating a 747-200F... and I think Iran Air still have their 742 freighter EP-ICD active. Iran Air Fo...Jump to post
SFP started with a request from Gol, to operate the B737-800 on short runways here in Brazil, specially Santos Dumont airport in Rio.Jump to post
Not sure if an AT46, even as a ferry flight, is able to do RAI-NAT nonstop It is. Not sure if they use auxiliary tanks but it's not the first ATR delivery passing from Cape Verde to Brazil nonstop. I've photographed a few ATRs here in FOR arriving from Europe on delivery flight. NAT and REC are als...Jump to post
I'm assuming it could make it to the US sometime tomorrow. Probably gonna overnight somewhere for crew rest or swap in the Caribbean or Paramaibo? (not sure how Part 91 works on aircraft deliveries). From Las Palmas, might go to Sal Island, Natal and Cayenne before heading somewhere in the Caribbea...Jump to post
Silver Airways... and almost no silver used on the livery... LOLJump to post
Any recent news about them? Is the whole fleet still grounded? Filed for bankruptcy. It will be the first Dominican bankruptcy case to be adjudicated under a new law which allows for restructuring (as opposed to liquidation). Interesting... any news of the restructuring process? Sad to see them ris...Jump to post

Fixed that for you. This forum is made up of many hundreds of individuals who all have different artistic tastes. Some like more standard liveries, others like more unique ones. I, personally, hate this livery, but I don't think that anybody who likes it is empirically "wrong" or anything...Jump to post
Not sure about the interior, but TF-FII looks pristine from the outside. WiFi dome, Scimitar winglets and a fresh livery. Nice job, Icelandair! here's the bird here in Fortaleza, flying on behalf of TACV: https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4567/26565891829_ce0860f39d_c.jpg Eyjafjallajökull @ FOR by Leon...Jump to post
Congrats to Embraer and Wideroe! That's a great looking machine! I prefer the previous livery, this one looks too much like Turkmenistan, but anyway, still very nice. the E190-E2 indeed looks a bit shorter with this massive engine and bigger center fuel tank. However, the E195-E2 was stretched when ...Jump to post

There seem to be two variants, the more "swoopy" NG design and the straighter MAX design. AFAIK, the Split Scimitar Winglet is the one used in the 737NG. It's a retrofit for the Blended Winglet and is manufactured by Aviation Partners. The winglet used on the 737 MAX is the AT Winglet (AT...Jump to post
Meridiana is ceasing all operations in Brazil (Fortaleza and Recife) on April 25th, due to their restructuring as Air Italy and focus on new routes.

Whatever happened to the days of LAN being a premium carrier? A decade and a half ago, they were by far the best airline in South America with friendly people and an amazing product. Now they have arrogant staff and cheapen their offering with each passing year. Can't say about the rest but here in...Jump to post
The tail looks good because it's glossy on this MD-11 pic.
Don't hold your breath to see the rest of the aircraft, the only "livery" at all is just at the tail.
Can't they get some MD-11Fs from VCV or something?
If they need capacity, a 747 might also do the work.
The most similar replacement would be a 767-300F, I guess. However, I believe they might be difficult to get, specially due to Amazon Prime Air orders...
Compared to their current livery, this is awful.
Compared to Lufthansa's new livery, this is beautiful.
I hope they indeed finish the livery at KEF.
Icelandair's livery is very classy and elegant. This one looks cheap. Reminds me of an interim leased aircraft.
This livery is wonderful. Would be great to see the A321 and B737-900ER side by side.Jump to post
