Rare Aircraft 2018

Tue Jan 02, 2018 4:38 pm

I couldn't find an active thread so I'll start a new one for 2018.

This is a place for discussion, questions and tips about flying rarer aircraft which can be difficult to log. I'll start of by saying Australia is a good place to log the Fokker 70/100. Both majors have inhouse subsidiaries which operate the F100 on the west coast. And VA subcontract some regional flying out of BNE on the east coast with F70/F100 operator Alliance.

I also have a question. I'm planning a trip to europe in Nov/Dec 2018 primarily the Nordic countries. Of particular interest is the BAe ATP. Wikipedia suggests that Nextjet still flies the type and their website confirms this. My question is assuming the information on their website is current which routes do they typically operate? and if so are there any plans to retire the type in 2018?

Also I'm looking to log a Boeing 757-300. Does anyone know which European routes Icelandair typically sends their example on? Looking at the schedules their 757's seem to appear as either 75W or 75T with many more of the former. Am I correct in assuming the 75T is a -300 or is it another -200 subtype?

I am a technology dinosaur with a poor internet connection, so take what I offer with a large pinch of NaCl.

This is the most recent schedule for ATP SE-MEX, showing 2N551/2N554 & 2N592/2N593, plus 2N591, 2N557, 2N57 all within the last 7 days

Likewise SE-MAK

Out of the five aircraft listed, these were the only two ATPs I could find recently active, which might be a related to their winter schedule and lack of daylight. Also I cannot guess the future schedule, but armed with those links, you can at least make your own analysis.

2. What was I saying again?

If the 753 on Icelandair doesn’t work out you may also try Condor or Thomas Cook UK and their 753’s.

Looking forward to my Yak-42 flight in March... :D
