Air Holland Gone?

Mon May 13, 2002 5:34 pm

The from Britannia leased Air holland B752, G-BYAR, took off from Maastricht Aachen Airport. The plane stood parked for more than a month on the NNE side of the field. According rumors, which my brother in law heard from spotters overthere, the plane has been returned to Britannia. Has somebody updated news? Are there pictures of the take-off?

@ Air Orange,

what i make up of the forum.
the byar left maa as bal999 or something a few days ago.
but i have heard nothing about retouring the a/c to by.
i think the a/c needed his monthly check or something.

What Lj says could well be true.

I didn't get a clear view of it as it was nose-on to us, but I believe 'AR is parked up at MAN next to the MON DC10 and someone's spare A332  Wink/being sarcastic

So I drive a 4x4. So what?! Tax the a$$ off me for it...oh, you already have... :-(

Air Holland is in a strange situation. The B757 was indeed parked at Maastricht and went to Manchester a couple of days ago and is now parked there.
In the meanwhile, a lot of other airlines are flying for Air Holland at weekends. Air2000, Sabre are just a few. Highlight this weekend was the Airbus A330 of VG Airlines, which operated three flights for Air Holland.

Rumours say there are some problems with the Dutch Civil Aviation Authority to get aircraft registered. Air Holland is also supposed to lease a former Air France B767. This aircraft is now at CDG waiting for things to happen.
