Re: Bahrain plans to sink a B747

A 37.7 years old B747-236B, previously with BA as G-BDXN and MH 9M-MHJ. Stored in FJR since 2013. https://m.planespotters.net/airframe/Boeing/747/TF-AAA-Air-Atlanta-Icelandic/A0gjcdY0 I did not realize that BA had a 747 built that was NTU. Any others? It looks like Air Atlanta flew both G-BDXNs. ht...

Re: 767 Fleet/Subfleet Activity (2017)

That leaves only six A/C in the fleet with throttle-cable driven non-FADEC engines (Gulf Air -3P6ERs). Down from 45 airplanes about ten years ago.

Re: Delta MD-80s,How much longer

After the MD-80s get retired is there much demand for them on the second hand market or will they all be scrapped. I think Delta learned their lesson after letting some DC-9s go to Valujet. No more planes to a (future) competitor. I suspect that they go straight to the scrapyard, unless the MD-80F ...
