Two Spice Jet B738's In DEL [Possibility]

Tue May 03, 2005 5:37 pm

Yesterday a Few Buddy Pilots told me on duty that there were Two B738s Unpainted in White colours with N registration marks at Delhi.
Could these be the Aircraft belonging to Spice Jet getting set for the paint job.
Anyone aware.

The ATA jets have already been painted in 9W colors. They are VT-JGJ and VT-JGK

There's still a few ATA 738's that are 'unaccounted' for ...
Did any of your buddies happen to see the tail numbers? Are the aircraft winglet equipped?

Have heard that one plane may be F-GRNB, ex Euralair, as it was noted in DEL recently. Not sure of the other one.

Hope that helps

Side question.....

Is it true Photography of Passenger Aircraft is prohibited in India?
Then should not the A.Net Photo database be a void?

(Read the bit on the ban in Airliner World Magazine....who I trust less and less with each issue....)

Passengers travelling are now permitted to take photographs from inside the aircraft. There was no restriction on photography from areas outside the airport perimeter.
