Thanks for this trip report and the excellent photos! I frequently visit Interlaken and know the area well so it was good to see the scenery from a different perspective. Coincidentally, Niesen is one of my favourite mountains, due to its perfect pyramid shape, so that photo made me smile :smile: Gl...Jump to post
I agree with S7 100%! The one that immediately springs to my mind is the recently replaced Cathay livery. Sometimes I looked at it and thought it was beautiful and elegant, sometimes it looked drab and awful. Think it depended on the aircraft type, weather (quite often drab and awful here in the UK)...Jump to post
Hi Virginblue, I flew on the inaugural PMI to SOU flight last year on the 717 and it was a great experience. Like you I was hoping for the 717 as I couldn't find any info on a/c type!

Hello all I stumbled across a couple of interesting reports this morning regarding a bullet being found lodged in the left wing of a LATAM Brasil 767 (PT-MSY). The aviation safety link has more info.

Hey! I played the trumpet for a while when I was at school and then changed to the Tenor Horn, with which I achieved grade 6.

Thoughts and hopes are with those on board.
Hi all, I have a very simple question which most probably has a very simple answer, so here goes... :scratchchin: I recently flew on board I-BIMA, an A319 of Alitalia. When I got home, I found that of the 22 AZ A319s, I-BIMA is the only one on the Italian register, (with the others being EI-IM...). ...Jump to post

I'm pretty sure I was the only English speaking person on a MRS-MAD IB flight earlier on this year.
I recently booked my honeymoon for next year, where I am scheduled to fly on a couple of Air Madagascar domestic flights. I foresee something similar happening here too!

Crabs. I have no idea why. All I know is I'm terrified of them, they look horrible, and I wish they would go extinct. It's very annoying because I find all other marine life fascinating.

Hi Knightsofmalta, We missed each other by one day! I flew out of MAN to SOU on the 2nd and spotted G-LGNT on the apron.

Hi Kas, I usually go to the park in between the M25 and the A3044 for 09L arrivals (51°28'40.0"N 0°30'01.5"W). It is very quiet and you're not right next to the road.

I think this will be very controversial, but my favourite Bond film is A View To A Kill, and I've never been able to put my finger on why!
