Aeropostal's DC9-32 (YV-48C) Spotted At SJO!

Wed Dec 08, 2004 7:52 am

Guys I was checking some pics in and look what I found.
2 pics dated Nov 19, 2004 that show YV-48C parked outside a maintenance hangar in SJO. Could this be a future Aeropostal: Alas de Centroamerica aircraft or will it go to AeroHonduras? Any one has a clue? photo:

Luisde8cd: The plane looks to be undergoing some sort of maintence work, but as a coincidence the first group of pilots for Alas de Centroamerica and Aerohonduras started DC-9 training in Costa Rica!!

I copied the following from a Honduras aviation forum:
Nuevos pilotos de AERO-HONDURAS...

Los Capitanes Guido Venegas y Ulloa ya se encuentran en San Jose de Costa Rica tomando el curso de inducción del Grupo AERO-HONDURAS/ ALAS CENTROAMERICANAS/ AEROPOSTAL. Una vez terminado, viajaran probablemente al centro de simuladores de vuelo para DC-9 que tiene AEROMEXICO en el D. F.. Estos deberan a empezar a volar como a mediados de enero del 2005.

That's great news. Hope to see that bird flying soon.

By the way, does anybody can identify the aircraft in the back? [2nd. pic]
