CO30/16JAN GRU-EWR Delayed 4 Hrs?

Thu Jan 18, 2007 5:10 am

I was aboard the above referenced flight. Can anyone shed any additional info on the delay other than it was mechanical? It was a 767-400 and I believe "Ship 53".

Thanks...

Thanks! I noticed there was a hi-lift under the elevator as we boarded. On a different note, it was great to see many DC-8's, & 707's at GRU.

Quoting TymnBalewne (Thread starter):
"Ship 53".

Is "Ship 53" N59053?

I thought CO was flying EWR-GRU with the 762. Was it upgraded for the season, was it just for the day or it's a permanent upgrade?

Probable BETA or Skymaster aircraft.

Yes to both...
The CO flight was replaced with a 764 and the first generation jets I saw were both Skymaster and Beta. Ahhh...such graceful airliners!!!
