Re: Boeing 787 Production/Delivery Thread - 2019

I'm seeing the first -10 for Vietnam Airlines as LN880, any idea on how long it will take until they roll it out? I would estimate that parts will arrive mid to late May, loading for final assembly either late May or early June and roll out somewhere around mid June Appreciate the info. Gonna try a...

First 737 fuselage moved by road since 2012. (Unsure if MAX or NG) https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Degzp3NVMAAAQgd.jpg Are they going to stick to road movements or is this one of? Is the movement due to increase in production rate? Secondly, I don't know if this is off topic but do different 737 lines ...

Re: Passenger denied boarding on WOW Air flight for not including middle name in reservation

The only airline that I am aware of where middle names are mandatory, as in guaranteed denied boarding, is Vietnam Airlines. Other than that their inclusion is often more cultural than anything else. Asian names for example often don’t have a ‘middle name’ but their full name is several words (in w...

Re: Hyakuri Planespotting tips.

Probably 3 step should be OK. But I think you'll need a car to get around the base as the light changes and to catch takeoffs/recoveries I guess having a car is better. I'll send in my application for International Driver Permit in a few days and I'll probably rent a car there. Do you remember how ...

Hyakuri wooden towers have been rebuilt. They are now metal, taller and better. I spent a full day in Hyakuri in 2014. The F-4s flew all day from morning to dusk. Morning go to the towers, you have to drive to the gate and call the phone number. The old lady used to come out and collect a fee and o...

Re: Vietnam Airlines studying A350-1000 and 777X for non stop flights to the US

I heard that when the Civil Aviation Administration of Vietnam get approve for the FAA Cat 1, they will start flying to US (with a possible refuel stop at Japan), even if they suffer losses in the first couple years.

Hey guys, I'm currently planning a short spotting trip at Tokyo during my 3-4 days layover there. The plan is probably spend 1 day (possibly 2) at Hyakuri and another one at Tokyo Heliport and either Haneda/Narita. It'll be a solo trip so I'll probably stick with public transport to save on the cost...
