Is this confirmed, not 333 as the first for JL? JAL Firing order as it stands (all for delivery in 2019): 321 - JA01XJ 333 - JA02XJ 343 - JA03XJ 352 - JA04XJ 370 - JA05XJ I believe 321 is #3 to enter FAL right now behind 319 & 312. Perhaps 313 also will go before it but unclear at this stage. T...Jump to post

Thanks for the information. Would be interesting if MSN 2 and 4 willfind a new owner. CX always seems to have a track record of picking up test frames. Who knows, perhaps they will want these. I'm sure they have been offered. Well... This is true with the A330 and B777, but most probably not the ca...Jump to post
That’s very cool. Hope it going to be used and not just ferried out for more storage or scrapping.Jump to post

Maybe it’s becuase there are no A350’s currently due for them? Last one was 205 and the next one is 259!Jump to post
Just taking advantage of crew overseas. They know if they start to fire those in the UK it will get ugly...
As for the 7 days, that’s disgusting. However it must have been in the contract.

I have posted a few videos on Twitter if you want to look: @simonstorvik I was expecting armageddon but looks like a normal wet and windy day in HKG to me. Edit : https://hk.news.appledaily.com/breaking/realtime/article/20180916/58687997 That's a bit more serious. :shock: Glad you updated your comm...Jump to post
Interesting, due to fly to Singapore on Wednesday--should be ok. The last big storm knocked out a lot of the windows of the skyscrapers and apartments across Hong Kong. Nope... Macau had a few buildings that had windows blown out but not across the city. For Hong Kong, no... in the 30 or so years I...Jump to post
As normal all focus on the storm near the US.... but yes this is a very stron and very large storm. Maximum gusts of 180kts.
Let's see what happens in the coming days. Right now it's due to pass just south of Hong Kong but I expect serious delays in southern Taiwan, Philippines and southern China.
Maybe he had a medical condition?Jump to post
Someone is in trouble .... no comments on this post?!?!?Jump to post
The bridge is damaged, not destroyed. As for the airport not all is underwear and it was only the storm surge so it should dry quick. As for water in the buildings..... that's not good!
No road or rail link.... that's also going to be a problem.
Note: This is an aviation forum. Please try to keep discussion related to aviation. Of course storm strength and track are part of that. We are talking about the effect the storm will have on aviation in Japan.... surely that's aviation related. I would expect serious delays in Osaka seeing the eye...Jump to post

They have already hauled freight out of DFW. First time I saw an aircraft with LED wingtip strobes was when I was driving past DFW's Runway 18R and I stopped and watched. Turns out it was a Cathay Airbus A340 landing. Now it seems LED lighting is standard on Airbus's Close, but no. What you saw was...Jump to post
Seems to have landed ok.Jump to post
