West Caribbean MD-80

Tue Oct 10, 2006 6:26 am

I was wandering what happened with the 2 MD-80 of WCA, are they still in Colombia? o do they find new Homes?

I check at the airfleets.net site, an they show YH as an active airline, I'm sure that they were shut down after the crash over Venezuela.

I always thought YH only had 2 MD-80s, one of those being HK-4374X, which crashed in Venezuela.

At least one of them is still parked inside that same hangar here in MDE, according to fellow user 757MDE who flew recently out of the airport and managed to see the airplane inside it.

Both MD-80s must be still at MDE together with one ATR42. Two ATR42 are at SAT and one flies with Halcyon-Air.

Quoting SOUTHAMERICA (Reply 3):

Indeed. The one I saw was painted with the blue-red the scheme and was inside the hangar (which now spots an "on sale" mark) while on taxi to Runway 36 via Hotel while preparing to take off to BOG as MM8425 on HK-444
3-X (Fokker 100).

A also saw an ATR at Olaya Herrera some weeks ago, I think it was VP-XXX (ex Aces one), it was without engines and all gray. I came back a few days after I had seen it and it wasn't there.
