1st A340-500 TAM In Full Cs , No Photo!

Fri Nov 09, 2007 9:19 am

http://www.skyliner-aviation.de/regdb.main?LC=nav4


PT-MSN was yesterday at GIG , painted in full JJ cs.


This is just an info i found on Skyliner-aviation , bringing an end about the fate of the ex AC 345 going to TAM or Air Comet.

Now , we know !!!!


Hope someone will provide a photo very soon.

Cool. Will look just as boring as every other TAM airplane with the same paintscheme. Don't know if a pic is really necessary...

< Yawn >


For what routes TAM needs the A345?

Looking forward seeing the first four-engine plane of TAM. I don't think their scheme is that boring, might be even quite nice on an A340.
Hopefully I'll be on it's first flight FRA-GRU on the 1st of December.  Smile

And she crossed right over SJO again, I picked her up on ACARS around 4-5am, it was C-GKOM this time.

Interesting routing.Westbound SIN-SAO would just be around 16014km, but due to heads probably too much to make it nonstop. Eastbound via HNL the route is at least 23825km (more if it was seen over SJO). So a tiny lack of range causes her to make an extra way of about 8000km or more than 9h.

With due respect, we knew it already, before Christofer, who was travelling, put it on Skyliner News.
It had been confirmed by people in SIN and HNL that Air Canada was ferrying the ac for TAM.

Can't wait to see it, will certainly look nice, a lot of white, but still a classic. Might actually move TAM to buy some new A340s.

Guys,

I have some pics during painting at GIG and I am trying to put in here the hole week and I don´t know what is happening but it is not working...the photos are at the office and will try to put again tomorrow.

Last Friday the second one arrived at GRU and I also got some pics as it arrived.

Pls wait until tomorrow to see if I can put some pics here in this new post as I was trying to put in another one. Maybe that post had a problem.

Cheers,

You can go to photobucket.com, get yourself an account, upload the pictures there, post them here with the link that says "IMG" at the beginning. It should work fine.

Not really. They could have stopped in Africa. Must have been something else.

Ok Photoshoppers, I have a challenge.

I think all the TAM livery needs is a sash a la El Al, but in red, gold/yellow and green around the fuselage, and slimmer, more elegant, from the base of the tail where the colours could naturally merge, dipping underneath the fuselage before it gets to the "TAM."

Really? Now that is good news. Todays' scheme is just awful.

The present livery of EL AlL is ugly. Too bad because TAM's original livery was more interesting to look at. Those serpentine lines might help some in TAM's case though so it's not as plain.

Richard,

I understand that you can not let us know about this however, sound like JJ is considering something that can move a lot of people from possibly FRA if frequences might not be available.

Am I on the right track or...............

By the way I will be on JJ8095 from MIA Wednesday the 21st.

Well, since JJ has ordered 77W, it would be dumb to order the 748i. They could order more 77W. It would be as simple as that. JJMNGR must be talking about the A380, since it should have commonalities with the already ordered A350.
