Reached 300 pretty fast! This thread is getting up there! If we added the posts from "A 727 . . . " , we'd be at around 397 now!

Glad this thread makes you feel at home, Aloha73g!  Smile Many thanks to Bluewave707 for starting it!  Big thumbs up

I got a question for everyone who has participated in posting a reply to this thread...how many of you have Yahoo! Messenger or AOL? It would be really fun to be in a chat room at the same time and chatting with everyone...Let's hear what everyone has to say about this idea...I would gladly gather with everyone in a room to chat. Would be fun to see how many we could get from out of state to join us as well....Someone should organize this. AOL would be easiest to get a room going, but I am sure we could do it on Yahoo! as well. Unless, someone else knows of someplace else to organize a chat room....Please share your thoughts.

Yes, HNLFlyboy. That sounds like a great idea. But when is everyone available?

About that CI incident flying over the buildings... I wish I was there. It reminds me of another airport I miss, which is Kai Tak.

Was anybody shooting aircraft in 96 or 97?

If somebody was, did they capture in summer of 1996 Reeve 727-22C that was doing runs to Johnston Atoll?

In 1997 they where doing the same trips, except with Electra 78R.

In both cases on their return to Alaska at the end of the season the flew HNL-CDB.

Wow! I go out for a few hours to an industry briefing, and meeting, and ... a gob of posts! I am waiting to see my business grow like this thread. When that happens (soon!), I can plane spot WHEN I want and WHERE I want.


Okay, of those posts ... no one has mentioned the NZ A320 that we were waiting for. So ... did anyone go out to HNL to see it?


I'm glad we can make our fellow HNL spotters who are on the mainland for school, work, or whatever feel a little less homesick when you read this thread. Aloha73g, do you get to plane spot where you are going to school?


L-188, I have a photo of an RV Electra parked out by UPS, from back in 97? If you'd like a copy, email me, and I'll attach a photo to the reply. Did see the 721, but darn it, it was parked behind the hangar by ASH.


People let's stay on course here, and keep the posts to RARITIES, please.

I am at Santa Clara University....which is 'across the street' from SJC. I can see the planes after they've taken off and on approach. Its pretty much just WN 737s and a lot of AA plus DL, CO, NW, UA, F9 & TZ 737s and A320s. Cool, but nothing nearly as excting or beaiful as an AQ 737 or HA 763. Plus I miss all the widebodies. Im coming in this Friday (2-13-04) from SFO on DL 219 and leaving back to SFO on DL 314 on 2-16 (thanks Cristina for the Buddy Pass). So I'll get to see a few widbodies and ride on atleast 2.

Aloha!

Aloha guys!

I saw this thread a while back and thought it was cool to see all the island spotters talkin story... 300+ post later, it's still here! Congrats all!

Just had a quick question about the AN-124's that used to appear randomly at HNL... Have there been any visits from them within the last year or so? I've been away from home for just under a year now, kinda stuck with the Air Force at the moment  Smile

Also, has anyone aside from me been told to leave by AKAL for taking pics, specifically around Lagoon Drive??? I think AKAL's excuse to me was because I looked Arabic...even though I'm white. Go figure.

Je89, I think I've seen you before! Do you frequent Lagoon drive? I KNOW I saw a kid taking pics out there one morning... Excellent pics brah.

Ah well. Thanks for all the info in advance.  Smile

The last time I saw an Antonov jet at the South Ramp was back in January 2003. It was a Volga-Dnepr jet. Since then, other AN 124 visitors parked at Hickam AFB.

I wish I saw those old jets here in HNL. How about the "newer" HA DC-8s and L-1011s?

Scanning some old shots that were rejected in the past, will upload them soon. Some modern-day rarities in the pile include:
  • AA B767-200

  • HA DC-10

    Saw the Asia Pacific 722F (N86425) down on the SR. Got a photo, but the fence was in the way. There was an all-white CK 742F too. Also saw an Atlas 744F depart 8R.

    Did you know that the Mahalo Air Fokker 27 that was parked around Pacific Air Cargo's office was recently taken away? It was sitting there for the longest time (well, not as long as the HATS), and just last year, the nose gear collapsed. So it sat facing down for a few months before someone actually removed the whole plane from HNL.

    Of all the 3rd major inter-island airlines that came and went, Discovery Airways is not represented on this site. I tried to find pix of their BAe146s, but nope, there are others with the same name.

    Well, type in DebonAir, and you'll get a reasonable facsimile of what Discovery was in their short life in Hawaii. They had the same owners, and the same livery. The one advantage they had was, being in the main terminal @ Gate 23, which HA and AQ did not like.

    Was Discovery really in the overseas terminal? I thought they were in the commuter terminal. All news footage I remember always showed pax deplaning using stairs. What HA and AQ did not like was that Discovery was more than 25% foreign owned. That's why they went out of business in 6 months.

    Regarding the discussion on go arounds, I was on one a few years ago on a United 757 flying into IAD, listening to Channel 9. A few moments after the flaps were retracted and the engines powered back up, the captain got on the radio and said "United 1966 going around."

    I don't remember them, but I have been told that I flew on their YS-11. We were supposed to take the F-28 jet, but it was delayed so we took the YS-11 instead. My parents described it as a "weird prop". I know recently they still had a bag with a Mid Pacific luggage ID tag on it, as far as I know it's still on there.

    HA717,

    That's right! Mid-Pacific also operated out of the main terminal. I forgot about that. Anyone remember the YS-11 used for an artificial reef off of Waikiki?



    Mahalo was the only 3rd I-I major to operate out of the commuter terminal.

    Of course there was the commuter terminal on the DH side of HNL with Royal Hawaiian Air Service (C402s),

    After thinking about it, HA and AQ had exclusive use of the terminals they were in prior to the opening of the interisland terminal. HA was in the commuter terminal and AQ's old terminal was located where the makai pier is now.

    I guess some of you guys are a bit young to remember when AQ had 733s and 734s. They acquired (can't recall if bought or leased) four -300s and two -400s. The reg #s for the -300s were N301AL to N304AL in sequence; and for the -400s were N401AL and N402AL.

    They were supposed to be the next wave of AQ's fleet renewal program. Unfortunately, the CFM engines, although quiet and fuel efficient, were not designed for the extra short, high-frequency route that AQ had. That is the main reason why the 732 is the mainstay of the inter-island fleet.

    The -300/-400 series were still used in many AQ print and TV ads. Did anyone ever notice that the -300 was used to promote the mainland routes, before they could get aerial shots of the 73Gs? I don't know if they still run it. I have no TV. If you catch it, look for three things: 1) the cargo door on the port side; 2) the grey flap fairings; and 3) the N304AL reg#, you'll have to look fast or tape the commercial; those are the dead giveaways of the 2nd Gen 737s. I'm guessing that the 733 was one of the first 2nd Gen QCs.

    What AQ plans to next is open to speculation. Please do not add your 2¢ about it. This topic of "what's next for AQ's i-i fleet has been beaten to death. I wrote to Glenn Zander, and all he said was they are looking into options for replacing the 732, no specifics.

    On a personal note, I rode both the 733 [3x] and 734 [1x]. The first 733 flight was on both segments of a HNL-OGG-HNL flight back in 1989. This was when AQ had the yellow/orange stripe livery. The other two times were KOA-HNL segments. The 734 was on a flight from HNL to KOA, back in 1993. They are rather quiet inside, even behind the wings. What I remember the most, is the steeper than usual climb angles just after rotating off the runways, and the short take-off rolls. I miss AQ's 2nd Gen 737s.

    Back in '91 I passed through HNL in a DC-3 along with 2 other DC3s on our way to BKK,on a trans-pac ferry trip. Noticed a Carvair parked there(very rare). It took us 14.5 hours,OAK-HNL,our next leg (after a weekend of blissful R&R )to Tarawa took 15.5. I hope to return someday. This is a great thread. I may try to start one for JFK,and DTW !

    When Discovery Airways was operating in Hawaii, did they use BAe 146's specifically? I really don't know a lick about the 146, but it looks like a gas guzzler with 4 engines... Were the 146s any good for short service like the 732s and 717s?

    Bluewave,

    your not that old, I remember taking an AQ 733 from HNL-ITO operated as Flt. 40, first flight of the day to ITO, back in the 80's. I LOVED those planes, compared to the 732. Quiet, very smooth, and F was actually quite luxurious with a true bulkhead seperating it from Y, curtains and all. I would travel with my mom and sister to ITO to visit my aunt for the day. My mom ONLY flew F and often we were the only three pax in the F Class cabin. It was like having your own private jet. Big wide seats, nice recline, lots of leg room, a cold towel to refresh yourself before you left the gate and a little gift from AQ distributed by the f/a's as a thank you for flying with them. Ah, those were the days. I remember getting a mug once, some stationery, and a Christmas ornament as gifts. They were always marked "Exclusively produced for our First Class Guests". Yep, back in the day, in F you were a "guest". That's service, gone, but not forgotten.  Smile

    I was too young to remember if I flew on the 733 or the 734, but I knew I wasn't flying on the 732 w/ the funny looking engines. I knew about the 733, especially in the commercials, but the 734? That's a new.

    The BAe146 was the sole type for Discovery. It was one of the first true RJs, before RJs were fashionable, or the potential was seen. PSA was one of the first airlines on the mainland to use the BAe146 for their smaller capacity routes. Air Wisconsin (ZW), and Mesaba (XJ) are the main users currently. The engine is obviously smalle, and less powerful than what's on a CRJ or ERJ. Airlines in Europe also use this jet for their high-freq/short-haul routes. Avro stopped making the RJ85 series a couple of years ago.



    The rationale behind the AQ 733s and 734s were: 1) upgrade the aging 732 airframes [remember AQ241?]; 2) noise reduction [eventhough the HI Congressional delegation got an exemption for the Stage III regs for the US]; 3) increased capacity [there was a tourism boom going on when they got the -30s]; and 4) fuel efficiency.

    The -400s were intended for the HNL-OGG and HNL-KOA routes figuring they could haul more people to those other popular tourist destinations. Since those are the most frequent flight routes. The -300s were to be used for the other AQ routes.

    Again, this topic has been beaten to death on other threads. I do not want to start this discussion on this thread.



    DC3...

    I missed those DC-3s passing through HNL. I once saw a Royal Thai Air Force C-47 parked @ HNL in 1996. Genavco operates two DC-3s as freighters, down on the south ramp.

    The AQ 732 replacement has not been beaten to death like "NW to replace DC-9s." The last thread I remembered was the "AQ will replace B732s w/ BAe-146." I just wasn't aware that AQ did operate a B734 and that is why I mentioned it. Well, since this thread is bothering you soooo much with this 734 rarity, I'll change the subject.

    Does anyone remember Aloha Pacific DC-10?! I still haven't seen a decent photo of it on A.net.  Big thumbs up That's a little "blast from the past!"

    ANA had a 742 here today. Pretty rare considering that there are only 2 left in ANA's fleet. Plus, I saw an ANA 767 takeoff from 8L. Now that's rare. I thought it was a 757 when I saw it taxi onto 8L. You need special permission for any widebody to takeoff from 8L.

    Also, I saw a white DC-10 takeoff from the reef runway around 10:00, I guess. It did not look like an Omni DC-10. This one had a large marking on the front half of the fuselage and possibly a logo on the tail, not the #2 engine, like Omni.

    Ha763,

    I saw a DC-10 yesterday climbing off of Diamond Head with the same markings. I thought maybe it was a cargo run or something. It was passing around 2pm....anybody got a clue as to what a/c this is?

    and Bluewave you beat me to it....Kona's!!!!!!!!!
