It's 6 actually. VER, JBA, MRM, PPY, VAS and DAS

Who knew? Miracles DO happen! LOL. Good news. SSJ100 SN95086, XA-MRM will return to the fleet tomorrow. Wow, last flight was done in March 31st 2019. XA-DAS was stopped in April 2020. Wonder why it hasn't returned this last one. g77 C-check was just finalized. I also expected DAS to join the fleet ...Jump to post
I don't think CU-T1254 ever left HAV. There are pictures of her under the Cuban sun as late as October 2019. My understanding is that, after rotting away for years, it needs major work done on it to bring her back to an airworthy state before crossing the pond back to Russia for a major overhaul. I...Jump to post
CU-T1251 last flew in the end of January this year. I guess it is through some local maintenance - the Il-96's have disappeared for a time before also and suddenly returned to service. I have not seen any news or photos of CU-T1254 after she flew to Voronezh for maintenance about a year ago, so it ...Jump to post
Work on the AN158 fleet is probably being carried out but at a very slow pace. Only 1 IL96 in service CU-T1250. 1251 not flown for a good few months now and 1254 ????? No sign of the TU204 that went to Russia either. In the current climate, 1 wide body and a couple of ATRs is all they really need. H...Jump to post
Good to see some old, classic types keeping busy;
Rada Airlines IL62 EW-450TR
Transaviaexport B747-300 EW-465TQ
Geo-Sky B747-200s 4L-GEM/N/O
Plus the DC10s of Fedex and the numerous B727s,IL76s and the odd IL18!
So is YK-AZB the old Olympic 300 or the Mahan 600? I'm guessing 'ZB is the Ex Mahan A346, never seen it in real life, unlike the -300 'ZA which comes to the UAE on a very regular basis, makes me feel a bit small when it parks next to my A320 :lol: Only time will tell! Once COVID19 does the honourab...Jump to post
The contract for the 2 new ATRs has been cancelled.

No small fans in front of the pilots like many Russian aircraft?! Having riden in one as pax, I’d think pilots would like the fans during the interminable take-off roll. And that was at Moscow in April, heavens how you’d sweat that roll on a hot day. GF The pilots air vents are built into the cockp...Jump to post

Will the YAK also fly to Cairo or only to/from DAM?
It looks like the flight operated today.Jump to post
October stats have now been made available by the airport. Allowing for the loss of Thomas Cook I believe that a reduction of less than 2% over the same month last year is a pretty good return. https://i.ibb.co/zRTmXLj/Screenshot-468.png The charter figures are up, but I guess this was the last of ...Jump to post
British Airways have previously operated to the following long haul destinations from Manchester although not all of them at the same time. Some of these flights were direct or were an extension of the LGW flights, with those flights originating from LGW. Some of the destination's were inherited fr...Jump to post
BA did serve MCO from MAN in the late 80s early 90s using B747s originating at LGW. I seem to recall it was only once or twice a week and was only for a season or two. I also can remember the same for Batbados and Hong Kong both via LGW at around the same time. British Airways have previously opera...Jump to post

Cubana's fleet as of June 2019 is; 4 x IL96 (1 in service CU-T1250, 2 stored/maintenance 1251/4, 1 wfu ex Aeroflot machine) 4 x TU204 (3 stored, 1 recently flown to Russia for overhaul - CU-T1702) 6 x AN158 (all stored or undergoing maintenance) 1 x ATR42 1 x ATR72 which I think is leased from a Sou...Jump to post
Why are the Mahan B747-400's not flying? The old 300 series still operates every now and again but surely the 400 would be more economical to operate.Jump to post
The fleet is not old, it’s just not maintained properly. That’s why only 2 out of the 3 IL96s ( approx 13 years old) and one ATR are in service. The fleet of AN158s are well under 10 years old but they can’t keep them airworthy mainly because the back up is so poor and they fact they can’t simply ca...Jump to post
Look's like one of the old UTair Boeing 767-200 LN819 is grabbed by a Lebanese Startup carrier called FlyAman, which is spotted in IST wearing the airlines livery. This 767 is much more younger than the older -300 and -200 series, which is getting converted to freighters and have more demand than t...Jump to post

An-24 Is a very old and not at all VULNERABLE design, with plenty of flying hours below her wings.
