I think this thread brings two of A-net's most hated things together in one rather unsightly edifice. What we have seen consistently throughout the history of the A380 and indeed of EK, is people with an axe to grind stating categorically - "they don't have the load factors for that" or &...Jump to post
This has to be a suicide? Semi daylight entering an airport and walking into an oncoming 737. Being that close to a 737 landing even if you are deaf you know it’s coming. I can’t believe anyone can accidentally walk into a jet that’s travelling around 100mph! Not sure why some “doubt he/she wasnt in...Jump to post
Looks like the pilot did a great job getting hee down in the field in mostly one piece. Hope there are no serious injuries! So far it's been reported that one was airlifted without life-threatening injuries. This is unconfirmed but I have seen reports that this was a repositioning flight and there ...Jump to post
Guess they were probably empty going so no need for the stop in Ireland, and maybe the addition of MIA was for repatriation?

Isn’t the point of update to the IL-114 meant as a Il18/20/22 replacement, for the Russian Military? Wes... Negative. A military-driven development is Il-112. Il-114 is supposed to be a magic wand to solve civilian transport problems: regional connectivity, all that. This link definitely has a mili...Jump to post

Gulf Air Here we go: 5735361 Right, but...the one odd thing I don't understand about this so-called retro livery is that the gold stripe is inaccurate! With that livery at that time, it was purple!!

So, for a stubborn member like me, this will be the Gulfstream VII.

This crash might spell the end of passenger flights on these antique warbirds. I am betting insurance premiums for the operators will skyrocket. Very sad picture.

Thank you for the vote of confidence. Glad you enjoy the pictures. I try to limited pictures to that of test flights, when they are painted, or first for a airline.

Minimal. The private jet market in China is not that large. And the Party doesn't want the rich people and companies to own these things anyway. It’s not that small either!

Why are guys debating which airline IAG place their MAX’s. they may have got such a good price that they can just lease them out to airlines in Asia and Africa that need them for a decent margin.

BritishB747 Just checked prices on BLL to BRU with Brussels Airlines. Only available is Flex and Fast at £290. Then you still have to get back to the UK. I have been looking on Kayak and SAS.

I'm not going to claim expertise on antique airplanes but I'm pretty sure the KC-135 and the 717 are very different planes.
I really hope the ATC guy gets a lot of help with this, he would be pretty cut up at a guess having spoke to Rich for so long...
