Wow...the pics of TUL and BFM...I sure hope that a tornado now doesn't come thru either place, or ATL or any place else where airlines are parking large blocks of their fleets. The last thing needed right now is to have 300+ airplanes wiped out in a single stroke on top of everything else going on!!


TUL is AA's heavy maintenance base, so they usually have numerous planes parked there waiting their turns in the maintenance hangars. However, the number of planes stored there right now is unprecedented. Considering that AA's biggest hub, DFW is on the southern fringe of "tornado alley", AA probably is well-insured against such risk.

BFM has a major MRO subcontractor who does work for AA and others. This is also home to Airbuses' A22X & A32X FAL's. Being on Mobile Bay and just a few miles from the Gulf of Mexico, tornados are less prevalent, but of course, hurricanes can be a problem. However, they get enough warning before a hurricane to move the jets to higher ground.


I realize most of that, and of course AA is insured for hull losses from something such as a weather event along with every other airline; that's basically mandatory. My point, which I guess I didn't really express, was...besides the impact to the airline for when business recovers after this pandemic dies down (lack of aircraft), can you imagine the impact to the insurance industry if ~300 or more aircraft were wiped out in one shot? Economies and the financial system are already under severe stress...such an underwriting loss would not be a good addition.

Not sure either. That is sometimes where good threads go to die.

Further to my last report on the situation at GLA/EGPF, Jet2 aircraft have now started parking up. I could see at least three 738's on stand with engine covers on during my Sunday evening visit, and the BA Airbus collection has increased to ten strong. I understand there have been additional Jet2 additions since then including a 738 parked in-between the two Virgin aircraft.

Two of the three A346's being stored at Prestwick have today arrived at Bournemouth. I presume the third (G-VWIN) will follow suit shortly ?

Does anyone know where any of the Canadian airlines are posting their fleets? A year ago there was a few WS MAX in YKW but they don't have much more room. Is WS utilizing some of the runways at YYC for their fleet? When Canada 3000 went under there was a couple of their jets parked at YWG so are they storing some again?

There's nothing worth seeing in Billund. Just the usual gaggle of DAT MD-80s lying around and ATRs stored on the south side. AFAIK, Sun Air always put their aircraft in the hangar when they aren't in use. There was a Nordica ATR and a pair of DAT A321s parked up on the remote stands, but that isn't unusual.

D-AILR (with the old livery) was damaged at FRA last summer. So the image is likely taken at FRA. The vertical stabiliser leading edge wasn't missing last October, so the photo must be more recent than that. https://www.aerotelegraph.com/nach-koll ... r-am-boden

Dutch public broadcaster NOS has published a video of all the parked planes at AMS, the video is not really spectacular because it just looks like any other day since most planes are parked at the gates (just not in use).

But it gives you a bit of an impression. You can see a few Queens and their Dreamliner daughters standing next to each other though.

The link PANAMsterdam provided for AMS doesn't work for me either, same video but maybe this one works better?

'Planes parked at gates and on platforms. Later this week more planes will be grounded. At the moment still too much traffic to close large parts of the airport as was planned.'

A friend of mine, an engineer at British Airways Maintenance Glasgow (BAMG) told me that they would be 'powering' up each stored aircraft including engine runs roughly every two weeks, and explained the parking distance between each aircraft has to take this into account as well.
