Unidentified Aircraft At NCE - Help Required

Mon Aug 16, 2004 7:01 pm

I was sitting on the beach behind Cap3000 watching arrivals and departures at Nice on Saturday afternoon, having my lunch (mmmm sushi !) and I saw a couple of aircraft I wasn't able to place.

1. A B737-300/700 in old Maersk colours (medium blue with dark blue stripes) but with no titles or logo. It can't have been a Maersk flight I don't think, because a Maersk aircraft in the new c/s had just landed, and this one was leaving. It departed NCE around 1515.

2. An incoming BAe146-200/Avro RJ85, mostly white, with an 'F' logo on the tail. Arrived NCE around 1445.

Anybody know who they might belong to ? Cheers..

The BAe146, maybe a Flightline a/c operating a sub for BA from MAN?

DBA are operating a former Maersk 735 OY-APK in basic colours with no titles etc. I believe they fly to NCE. They also operate 'APL in white colours with DBA titles.

Cheers

Could the Maersk one be OY-APK operating for Deutche BA?

Thanks all - those are exactly the planes I saw. I guess the Flightline one was the BA7915 in from MAN, and the ex-Maersk was the DI4608 going out to STR (late). Cheers !

As I was a passenger on DI4607 STR-NCE on saturday, I can tell you that DI4607/4608 was operated by D-ADBM. I have seen OY-APK landing as well (from T2), but this one was obviously operating the TXL-DUS-NCE flight - or was it MUC-NCE? I don't know, but the ex-Maersk aircraft never fly to STR at all, they seem to be based at MUC and DUS.

Thanks, Ndebele - that makes sense. DI4606 departs NCE 1430 for DUS, so that would make it exactly right. Thanks very much.
