Hi! I am looking for references on the Boeing 767-300 Freighter prototype, specifically high-quality photos, and most importantly, its registration, for a model project. The aircraft I am looking for was painted in the blue-red stripes Boeing house colours, and just a very low quality image of it ex...Jump to post
Because they decided to move forward with the A340 instead. Swissair wasn't very loyal to Boeing, other than being the launch customer for the 747-300. The Classic 747 is the only Boeing (if you don't count McDD) model Swissair has ever bought. Sabena was, for a long time, a Boeing customer since t...Jump to post
Hello... Planning a trip to SoCal and adjacent areas and would like to know if someone has information about the flight activities through the Star Wars Canyon. There was a crash there earlier this year and I am wondering if they are still using the area (assuming they stoped after the crash). Also,...Jump to post
Looks like the plan to relaunch WOW Air is moving forward.
The question remains, will they have enough market to support the operation?

So, the first aircraft to show the new livery will be what? The A320NEO or the A350?Jump to post
After the recent flops like Lufthansa and Aer Lingus, it is a pleasure to see such an elegant livery. The big SAS titles are such a classic touch.
Congratulations to the creative team and of course to SAS! Can't wait to see it in the flesh.
Wondering if the 76 drivers can chime in here: What are you guys doing at 7,000 feet and that far out? What systems are being used/initiated, etc... accidents are never just ONE item, they are always a series of events spurred by one. Just wondering if something could have triggered a mechanical di...Jump to post
Given the strange dip in airspeed as well as a shallow climb just before the nose dive. Is it possible to have selected too much speed brake as the autopilot was levelling off and the aeroplane pitched the nose up too high and the pilots didn't see it until it was too late, then they responded inco...Jump to post
And, a general "control failure" to cover for the rudder hardovers and the like. So the full list comes: 1- load shift 2- Pitch trim runaway, not handled in time 3- stall but it would have had to have been a deep stall (think Airfrance) to be unrecoverable. 4- loss of reliable airspeed cr...Jump to post
A bit of colour, by myself, and the result would have been much better (or less bad):
I agree with you. 787-9 is most likely to win. It's probably gonna be a small order anyway, 6 to 8 frames, no? plus another 8 or so A330s to cover the Americas, that's enough for AR's network. For new routes, the planes should be flying for a while first. In this case, they could (should) go with a...Jump to post
Back then, VP had no scheduled international network, just the occasional charter flights to Aruba. The international scene was dominated by Varig and Cruzeiro, so I would expect this flight being operated by either of them. Also, VASP never flew to MVD and they had a small fleet of B727-200s, so I ...Jump to post
Anything other than some minor aerodynamic tweaks and updated flight deck (like the one used by FedEx) would mean huge re-certification costs. New engines could mean new pylons, new integration with the existing wing, possible new wiring and control boxes, this assuming a change on the landing gear ...Jump to post
Don't see them flying anywhere else than the North American West Coast, due to distances and flight times involved. Maybe they add another destination in that macro-area, YVR/SEA, SJC, or MEX, the latter being a long-shot. On the other hand, I read that they will be evaluating the B787 and A350 for ...Jump to post
Also a Mercedes owner here.
Have a 2003 A160 with roughly 180K km on it. It runs on petrol and I am very pleased with the mileage and comfort. Great car all around.
My second car is also a classic, a 2001 Renault Twingo, which I am restoring.
Packs-off for a normal start, on the 767 too.Jump to post
RAF flights stop frequently in Brazilian airports on the way to/from the Falklands, since many years. I recall seeing a L1011 at GRU as early as the early 90's. Other frequent visited airports are REC, GIG and POA. Flights are/were operated by Tristars, Hercules, VC10s and even the new A330s already...Jump to post
Some quick facts, but more or less confirmed by various sources inside LATAM: 4 A350-900s will be transferred to QR on a dry-lease scheme. The original idea was to provide the planes as wet-lease, but differences between the Brazilian and Qatari aircrew regulations precluded this. No more A350s will...Jump to post

It is the general consensus around LATAM Brazil that the 77Ws will NOT receive the LATAM colours, as they will leave the fleet before they are in turn for that. But, who knows, perhaps we see one painted at least. IIRC, Austral (or Aerolineas) painted a MD80 with the new colours (current scheme) jus...Jump to post
Hi, As other threads in the past, I am creating this one to follow on the repaint process by LATAM (all countries) So lets kick start it with the current status: Chile A319 CC-CPE A320 - A321 CC-BEK, BEL B763 - B788 - B789 CC-BGK, BGA, BGL Argentina A320 LV-BRY B763 - Equador A319 HC-CPZ Peru A319 C...Jump to post
