Phucket Air

Mon Apr 07, 2003 2:16 pm

Recently reterned from the Philippines and noticed parked at Clark international airport a YS-11 painted in full Phucket air cls

Not sure of the req but I guess its one of the old Air Philippines aircraft.
Anyone have any info on how many more of these there getting.

Afay, it actually doesn't sound that funny in English taking into consideration, that it is correctly pronounced "poo-ket", and not "fu.kit"
