Ethiopian 737-800 At Washington Last Night

Sat Apr 14, 2012 12:54 am

Straight from the factory fuel stop BFI-IAD-CDG-ADD. Not sure of the registration number, but it was sparkling, even at night.

You saw ET-APK (c/n 40964), planespotters said it began its delivery flight on April 12. Wish I was there at Dulles to see it. Cheers

Quoting 757ops (Reply 2):

Maybe they only sent two pilots to BFI and stopped in IAD to top off and change crew.

Indeed, part of a busy delivery schedule for 2012. Additionally, ET should get:

- 3x 738
- 2x 777F
- 4x 787
- 5x Q400
