Re: Current Status Of L-188 G-FIZU, C/n 2014 - Ex KLM PH-LLG?

Update: G-FIZU has a new owner, Buffalo Airways! Conair sold it to Buffalo on September 1, 2016 and the aircraft is now registered as C-GIZU.
Any A.netters who know what the intentions for this aircraft will be?

RE: Malaysia Airlines B772 KUL-PEK Missing - Part 80

Why do an experiment on an airliner with pax and crew, jeopardizing them without consult, fully exposed to daily operations for everyone to notice when, indeed, things went wrong?

Current Status Of L-188 G-FIZU, C/n 2014 - Ex KLM PH-LLG?

Current Status Of L-188 G-FIZU, C/n 2014 - Ex KLM PH-LLG?

YVRLTN, thanks for sharing this very recent picture of the aircraft. The caption next to the picture mentions G-FIZU moved to Abbortsford in 2011. Then I was mistaken in thinking she was still operational in 2013. The final departure from Bournemouth must have taken place in 2011 but not published u...

Just Flight F-111 Aardvark For FSX Questions.

Rotating course and heading knobs on the HSI does not change the needle / bug position. Either with AP ON or OFF, the HSI does not respond (only mouse tool tips indicate t...
