763ER For HMY?

Mon Jun 02, 2003 11:52 pm

An all-white ex-Vietnam 767-300ER has entered the paint booth at Goodrich/PAE. Could this be the first real long-haul aircraft for HMY?

Wow... with the entry of a B772ER and one addition soon I would have expected VN to return some B767 when their leases expire. Do you by any chance know the registration of this ex-VN aircraft?

Thanks Clickhapppy. This plane was not painted into the new scheme probably because the lease was to expire. I flew on her twice before.

Clickhappy, what makes you think this is destined for HMY?

I dumped at the gybe mark in strong winds when I looked up at a Porter Q400 on finals. Can't stop spotting.

Neil - I don't know  Smile I keep hearing rumors that HMY is planning on buying/leasing 2 767-300's for Asian Ops and I am trying to connect the dots.

There seems to be a glut of new build 763's available, 1 ex-Lequois machine, 2 Hawaiian's, and this all white bird.
