For those interested, American is doing a lot on social media tomorrow covering the event. I’ll be on the media flight and covering the events in Roswell almost live for AA. I also got the final sunset photos from the ramp today. So many people out there taking photos of the Maddog and saying goodby...Jump to post

Just wanted to give everyone (specifically for the spotters) some heads up for september 4. I'll be covering the media flight and had some public info for you guys that wasn't all put in one place, so I wanted to make sure it was shared. There will be 3 "final flights" from DFW. There will...Jump to post

Are there any more UA 777s in 9 abreast format? All the "Version 1" and "Version 2" 777s are still 3-3-3, and are certainly in service (I just flew in one a few days ago, an ex-CO "Version 2" bird). But once all of them are reconfigure, no, it'll be all 3-4-3 in Y. A s...Jump to post
Indeed OEB is heading to Tupelo where it will join 3 other ex-United 747s and an ex-TAP A330 coming soon. Not sure if anyone has plans to go visit, but UAM Aero (the company that is doing the recycling work) is holding an aviation day event June 15 and they are offering up close tours. I'll be there...Jump to post
Air Rarotonga in the Cook Islands (South Pacific) has a Saab340 LN39 that is 33 years old E5-EFS. Contour Airlines flying small operations around the United States has some Jetstream31 aircraft that are 30+, but those will be retired April 1. I just flew N310CN TUP-BNA and she was still an amazing r...Jump to post
I was lucky enough to go and visit the United 747s stored in Tupelo while working on a job for United. Had some special permission to use the drone (you can imagine all the paperwork I had to do...). Anyways enjoy the beautiful 747s and dramatic music.
The airplane had an engine fire and diverted to Omaha. They have replaced the engine and have been doing run ups on the runway and testing it since. Not sure why it is still there though.Jump to post
Here is a link to a drone video I made from the United 747s stored at Tupelo. Yes yes I had full permission from everyone and went through an intense process to get access with the drone. Im not the best with drone video, but thought the angles of the greatest plane ever made was worth sharing! http...Jump to post
N182UA has almost been 100% parted out and is on her last legs as we speak. Some doors to one of the 747s at TUP showed up in North Carolina and they seem to have the “goodbye” stickers”. Though not confirmed I believe that would have to be N118UA or N121UA (the last aircraft to have the globe on th...Jump to post
Having done drone photography around aircraft, this video is hard to watch. I was the photographer who did drone video for the recent United 747 event and it took hours of planning and calling to pull it off. This type of shot should be harder to take, in reality, it’s quite easy and that’s the sad ...Jump to post
I don’t have any photos of expansion. I’ve heard quite a few rumors from verified and unverified sources. I know Delta was thinking about bringing back MCO and was looking at BOS but haven’t heard much more. I know United just announced double daily to San Fran. If Norwegian stays afloat, I could se...Jump to post
Not sure if anyone saw, but United had the last goodbye down in Tupelo. I was one of the photographers hired to do the photography for the event. Lots of cool photos of the United 747. I believe N118UA, N117UA, N121UA, and N182UA call Tupelo home. For those who care, I got special permission to use ...Jump to post
Hi Anet folks, Does anyone know which airliners are currently stored at Tupelo regional airport currently? I know that United has N118UA, N117UA, and N121UA stored there and Virgin Atlantic has an A340-600 also stored there. I will be visiting and would love to know what I will be seeing. Thanks for...Jump to post
Wonder why Omaha-Miami was cancelled. The route seemed to be doing alright when I flew it. Interesting that Omaha just got a Philadelphia flight too that starts in a few weeks.Jump to post
]I remember the cabin on the Air New Zealand 767-300 had a walled off section of the cabin (between economy and buisness class) on the right side. I sat right behind it and it looked like your average bulkhead. The plane was old the wall of the cabin and the bulkhead had become separated just enouph...Jump to post
I wondering if their is a retirement date set on the Korean airlines 747-400s. As of right now, their are 3 left in passenger configurations all delivered in 1997 and 1998. Does anyone have a timetable on these birds? Any information would be helpful!
I wasn’t too sure what to title this topic, and I know Their is already a topic on the retiring of the Singapore A380s, but I thought I’d give it a shot anyway. Singapore is retiring their a380s (I believe 3 are stored right now) yet they still have multiple to be delivered. I find this interesting ...Jump to post
Hi All, Recently saw a KLM 747-400 at LAX registered PH-BFS. I watched it land Saturday, then fly out only to divert back to LAX after takeoff and it’s been on the stand ever since. Anyone know what’s up? Obviously is wasn’t an urgent emergency if it went all the way back to LAX. I remember hearing ...Jump to post
I see a Deta 747-451 on a sports charter from Buffalo to Los Angeles. I was wondering if anyone knew how long it would be in LAX and where it’s going from there! I have a helicopter tour over the airport tomorrow and was hoping to catch it.
Thanks so much for any info!
One that people don’t tend to think about, is San Francisco to Los Angeles. Less than an hour flight and 8-10 hours drive in good traffic. Also Kodiak to Anchorage. That’s an easy hour long Dash8-100 flight, but on the ferry that’s an overnight 10-12 hour trip!Jump to post
I’ve gotten away with it since I was 16. No one really cares. A bit of champagne never hurt anybody.Jump to post
From an AvGeek standpoint I love this. Boeing looking to open another production line as United looks into replacing their old 767s. The only way to replace a 767 is with the 767. I know the other thread on this is already open, but do you think this is reasonable for United even with the 787s they ...Jump to post
I’m just an enthusiast, so do correct me if I’m wrong... but could that stand for 737-MAX8?Jump to post
While emailing the Chief Line Check Pilot for Delta, I asked him when the last ever Delta 747 flight was. It is actually a football charter from FLL-BUF on New years eve. I cannot post the email that he sent, but I believe he is a pretty solid source. From there I expect her to be flown to a Delta b...Jump to post
Slowly but surely the Southwest 737-300 fleet have hit the boneyards. This leads me to ask the question, what will the fate of these birds be. I know that a few have been picked up (I think 6 correct me if I'm wrong) for firefighting duties. What is the hours and cycles on some of the younger birds?...Jump to post
Yesturday I flew into Cusco, Peru for the first time. One of the coolest airports in the world I do have do admit. We rolled up to the terminal like normal and I noticed none of the jetways were working, and looked like they hadn't been working in a while. So we de-boarded via air stairs at a termin...Jump to post
Hi! I recently encountered some 737 bodies on the train from Wichita (I assume correct me if I am wrong) to Seattle to bed fully manufactured. I got a drone video from above, but being an avgeek, I cannot just settle with that. I was wondering if anyone could help identify the exact planes. The cons...Jump to post
So I had a question about the status of Peruvian Airlines. I know they recently had a crash and being a sucker for older aircraft, I was looking into trying to fly them when I flew Lima-Cuzco. I wanted to see if I could catch a 737-200 for the first and likely last time in my life. Does anyone know ...Jump to post
