Air Nauru's 737

Sun Apr 09, 2006 3:44 pm

If you dont know, the only air nauru aircraft, 737-400 RON was siezed by the Americans and has been sitting at MEL for the last few months.

About a month or so ago, i heard the thai government have helped them to fund the purchase of a new 737 as reported in the media.

Does anyone know what type this is, or is the media wrong, and they will get their existing a/c back?

thanks

I beleive its the Taiwan government - last I saw the original 737 (VH-RON) is still looking for a customer. The ex-im bank is accepting 'cash only' offers for it.
