New AI Plane To HKG

Fri Jan 25, 2002 12:10 am

today AI VT-EVI came to HKG the first time. This plane looked pretty new compare to the others.

Also, some other interesting planes at CLK today.

1. SAA 747SP
2. Swissair MD11 with blue belly?! how come?
3. UPS 757

The Swissair blue belly is what was supposed to be the Qualiflier symbol.

I haven't seen the new AI plane yet but the UPS B75F are fairly common - its just difficult to get the registration!

Does anyone have any news of "exotic" visitors in the coming weeks? I'm still very pixxed off about missing the RJ A340!

I saw the SAA 747SP and the SAA 747-200 parked almost nose to nose on Thursday. Strange. Am I seeing things because CX773 only mentioned the 747SP.

I was told that it was here today still, but I checked the website and there's no mention of any SA flight today (Apart from the CX/SA codeshare). Does anyone know if it is still here, and what the registration is/was?
