Very good explanation, thank you. I always assumed it must be something like this. But I'm wondering, why don't these flight tracking apps just pull the aircraft type from the data they receive live? They get all that information like altitude, speed, sometimes even exact routes live from the trans...Jump to post
The online flight tracking sites get their advance flight information from ETMS. The ETMS gets its advance flight information from OAG. Remember that OAG uses IATA coding which does not necessarily match up with ICAO coding (used in flight plans). As an example, ERJ could be EMB-135, -140, or -145. ...Jump to post
Hawaiian's oldest, N475HA might have 60000 cycles. The 717 is a DC-9, so the 110000 cycle limit applies. Plenty of years left.
Delta has 91 717s.
Just got off of N490HA. There are no concrete plans in place to replace the 717s. In fact, it just got two more.Jump to post

Does anyone know what gates they used, they would have had upto 4 jets on the ground at the same time in 3/84. I am also wondering if they added any more cities? Nope, that was it: October 1983-September 1984. After that it was down to Washington and New York; Washington ended at the end of October.Jump to post

They did. I saw them at BWI.
Last weekend I flew, in AA, on the route Huntsville (AL) - Chicago (IL) - London (UK). Flights were AA3677 (HSV-ORD) and AA46 (ORD-LHR). While checking that on FR24, i saw that AA3677 is also ORD-HSV, while AA46 is also MSP-ORD. Also, it happens that DL101 is EZE-ATL and ATL-LAX in different planes...Jump to post
As for Vision Air B737s. They've got couple of ex Continental B737-500s (I don't think they used them on overseas flights). For the DOD project they had two B767-200s Vision Air Boeing 767-222 N769VA cn 21866/7 Vision Air Boeing 767-222ET N768VA cn 21869/11 How about N767VA msn 21870 which was in t...Jump to post
As for the two B767-200s, they were based at IAD and were doing charter work on behalf of DOD. They were flying mostly to Romania and Slovakia (Bucharest and Bratislava). Before them, North American was flying this project. After Vision Air, Omni Air took over and now they have two B767-300 birds b...Jump to post

Here in ILM we get 1 ATR-42/ 1 Caravan to and from GSO. If the WX is bad in GSO, they'll g to MEM. It's sad that there is nothing to fill the gap from ATR to the 757. FedEX should order 737-700F or maybe CR2 converted freighters to fill the gap. What say you guys? There is no gap. Cargo doesn't hav...Jump to post
Currently trying to reactivate its DOT certificate so that it can operate charters with a 767. It doesn't need certification to do the Grand Canyon charters, but I had read somewhere that it had lost the contract it had with the tour operator that was handling the Grand Canyon work (not verified).Jump to post

One of the downsides of having multiple "airlines" is going through these processes every time you want them to start service. It's not as simple as the brand on the side of the airplane, it's the actual aircarrier certificate that's is operating. So Norwegian Long Haul Airlines may now b...Jump to post

It appears Great Lakes has ended its PHX to PRC flight. So now they just fly to Page. PHX-PRC was there just to link the orphan PRC-LAX run with the rest of the system (through PGA to DEN). Half of the PRC service has upgraded to Brasilia, the other half is due in March. Meanwhile, the PRC Beech wi...Jump to post
I'm going to presume that you have AA 707-323 as well as 123's in your collection? I remember flying into ROC on them in 77 or 78 from CLE.

It was originally Airmark Aviation, which began operating in 1991 with 4 ex-Air Cal 737s. It operated under FAR125 flying sports teams, however the FAA determined that its flights were actually charters, and the airline was shut down. It acquired the necessary certificates in 1992 and resumed operat...Jump to post
