German Aviation Thread

Tue Jun 20, 2006 3:00 pm

Are there any commercial airliners that have not been registered in Germany, yet ?
The only modern type I can think of is the 777 and 717 (which served with 4U for one season though) as well as the MD 90.
Of course there were also the Dassault Mercure and the Comet that have not been used by German airlines.
It will forever be a McDonnell Douglas MD 80 , Boeing MD 80 sounds so wrong

- Airbus A318, 340-500
- Boeing B767-400, 737-900
- Avro RJ70

Quoting Flying-Tiger (Reply 1):
Airbus A318

This is not correct. The A318's final assembly is in XFW and before delivery to the customer, and like with all the A32x assembled in Hamburg, the A318 gets a German test registration.

So yes, the A318 has been registered in Germany before, it's just that it hasn't operated revenue flights for German airlines so far.

Other airlines which so far have not been registered in Germany are mostly Russian built ones, at least not in West Germany, like the Yak-42 and the IL-86/96. Some Russian built Airliners did get registered in the re-unified Germany for the short time Interflug still operated, mostly with a D-AOB* or a D-FO** like registration format. There were a handful IL-62Ms that got German regs. One of those IL-62s even operated for the Luftwaffe for a short period of time as a transport.

One little known fact is that there were even a few Russian-built commercial aircraft registered in West Germany way before the fall of the Berlin Wall: General Air operated a few Yak-40 in the early 1970's and used them on domestic flights.

- Boeing 767-200?
- Boeing 737-600?
- Boeing 747-300?
- Fokker 70?
- and a lot of Boeing freighters (744F/762F/763F)

But I'm not sure about these few.

Must of these aircraft mentioned above are only sub-versions of aircraft families, while other versions of that family had been in use with German airlines.

Quoting Columba (Reply 5):

So we only have the

- Embraer 175/190/195
- Boeing 777

for the newer jets, the 717 belongs to the MD-80/90 family

Only the 777 than so far........


P.S.
Tridents never flew with a German reg. How about some Props ? L-188 never flew but is no in service with the German Navy as a MPA (P-3 Orion).

How about Dc 4, 5, 6, 7s ? I believe the Air Force used Dc 6 as VIP transport aircraft before they acquired the great 707 !
