Taoyuan International 30-Dec-2016 to 7-Jan-2017.

Taoyuan:
Not that much going on here really. There was one A350 delivery though! I’ve only reported the dates on which something happened.

I have to start with news of a couple of omissions from the last TPE report: ATALAS B747 N412MC arrived on 24-DEC and ANA pig JA55AN departed after maintenance on 29-DEC.

31st Dec
CHINA AIRLINES’ 4th A350-900 arrived this afternoon. It is of course B-18905 (msn 073) and has a hex of 899022 (which doesn’t seem to have been used before). And for those who are interested, I can assure you that she is just a capricious as her sisters. Never mind, just think of the overtime!

4th Jan 2017
GENERAL ELECTRIC’s pretty B747-400 N747GF air-tested this afternoon; departing at 13:55 and landing back at 15:20.

6th Jan
And having air-tested on the 4th, N747GF departed to VCV this afternoon at 13:46.

6th Jan
SKYMARK B738 JA73NC landed at 05:01 this morning. Two of the stored ex-TNA A320s left (details below).

And below is a round-up of all that…

Maintenance:
D-AHFT B738 TUIFly: (arr 01-NOV)
D-AHFV B738 TUIFly: (arr 14-OCT)
JA04KZ B744 NCA: (arr 24-DEC)

Taipei Songshan: 30-Dec-2016 to 7-Jan 2017.

Well, I’d like to say I’m back but the reality is that I’m not. As well as work, there have been other things going on to keep me busy, and tomorrow I’m off to Beijing for a week. When I return from there it’s the Lunar New Year party season (I’ve got 6 to go to so far; I’d forgotten how tough this job can be!). After that it’s the Lunar New Year break, and after that I’m enrolled in Mandarin evening school classes 3 times a week. So, the blog is probably going to take a backseat. Still, I’ll report what I can.

Songhshan:
Quite a lot of biz recorded below but the one that stands out is Falcon 900DX A6-RTS on the 6th.

I’ve recorded this elsewhere but for the sake of completeness , ex-TNA A321 N746QQ departed for the States on 7-JAN.

Anyway, here’s the biz.

Ex-FAR EASTERN AIR TRANSPORT Boeing 752 B-27013 and B-27015

I’ve had a couple of questions about 2 two ex-FAT Boeing 757s that are stored on the island; B-27013 (line/msn 835/29608) and B-27015 (line/msn 876/29609).

Both are stored on the RoC AIR FORCE air-base that is adjacent to Taouyan International Airport. B-27013 (the red one) is outside and B-27015 is in a hangar. B-27013 can be seen by looking over a wall on the perimeter and it can also be seen if you are travelling on the Taiwan High Speed Railway as the train passes by the base.

I’m reliably informed that neither will fly again as the cost of making them airworthy is more that the aircraft are worth. Presumably that means they will be scrapped here at some point.

TransAsia Airways aircraft fates

Below is the latest I have on the ex-TRANSASIA AIRWAYS Airbus fleet. I have to confess that I’m not sure what’s happened with the ATRs. As far as I know they are all still on the island. If anyone has any updates please let me know.

Taipei: 25-Dec-2016 to 29-Dec-2016

It’s very much a case of short rations for my last post of the year. I’ll start by wishing everyone a happy new year (prosperous or otherwise).

Taoyuan:
25th Dec
CATHAY PACIFIC A350-900 B-LRI made a first visit this morning (now, where’s that pesky B-LRH?). NIPPON CARGO Boeing 747-800F JA11KZ may well have been a first visit too; it was certainly the first time I’ve seen it! Staying with Boeing 747-800Fs, AIRBRIDGE CARGO’s VQ-BRH left this morning. Somewhat randomly, JAPAN AIRLINES Boeing 767-300ER JA620J arrived from Manila as [JAL8190] in the early hours.

26-Dec
Only thing of note today was JA620J departing back to Manila; this time as [JAL8191].

27-Dec
Former TRANSASIA AIRWAYS A330-300 B-22105 (msn 1157) has become OE-IEZ with a hex of 440915. It departed from here at lunchtime and has gone to Angeles City (CRK).

28-Dec
Little to report than the 1st service of my newest toy B-18903. It flew to Honkers and back as [CAL641/CAL642].

29-Dec
Nil points

Ex-CHINA AIRLINES Boeing 737-809 B-18601 has disappeared from sight. I don’t know if it has followed B-18607 and B-18608 across the pond or not. I don’t think it’s left as I’ve not seen anything on SBS, but I don’t know where it is! I also checked the FAA website and it has not been registered on USCAR yet.

Songhshan:
Before getting on to what few movements there were, there’s another “missing” aircraft to deal with. Airbus A321 N746QQ may have left here, but as with B-18601 above I haven’t noticed anything on SBS.

25th Dec
Pretty much nil points really. Some of the local biz were in and out; yawn!

26th Dec
Gulfstream G650 N706NR, which arrived on 23-Dec, left today.

27th Dec
Global 9H-VJW departed this morning (arrived 21-Dec) as did Legacy M-JCCA (arrived 24-Dec). Deer Jet Gulfstream G550 B-8108 arrived, departed, and arrived back again. Also in was Gulfstream G550 N319PP.

28-Dec
Global VP-CZJ arrrived. Gulfstream G200 N116FE which had been lurking in a hangar since 1-Dec left this morning.

29-Dec
Global VP-CZJ left, so did Gulfstream B-8101. Kaohsiung based Gulfstream G650 N629GD was in and out.

And that’s your lot for the year. See ya in 2017!

Taipei: 24-Dec-2016

Taoyuan.
Freighter movements don’t tend to feature much on the blog, but there were 2 worthy of comment today.

First up was AIRBRIDGE CARGO Boeing 747-800F VQ-BRH which arrived from SVO this evening. It’s since departed but I can’t recall seeing one in here before so I thought I’d mention it.

The second one is potentially more interesting. It was NIPPON CARGO Boeing 747-400F JA04KZ. It arrived as [NCA5241] and has stayed. The last time this sort of thing happened was when JA07KZ came here prior to be re-registered N407KZ. Watch this space!

Finally, it was a good day for CATHAY A350s today…

Taipei 21-Dec-2016

‘Tis the season for having dark thoughts about why multi-national companies are so obsessed with their year-end profit especially when their financial year runs til April. Airbus are doing all they can to ruin my Christmas by trying to deliver me 2 A350s by 31-DEC. We got one on the 23-DEC, and may get the next on 27-DEC. As much as enjoy doing my job, I’d much rather be done the pub at this time of year!

Whatever.

3 ex-TRANSASIA Aircraft left Songhsan today. One was the previously mentioned A320 D-AAAP (ex-B-22322). The other two are slightly more troublesome; they are A321s B-22615 and B-22616. They’ve become EI-FXS and EI-FXT but I don’t know for sure which one is which. There have been at least 5 others (LZ-AWH, 2-DLLA, 2-DLLB, 2-ISBA, and 2-ISBB) that have departed since the 21st and the 24th (which is when this post was written). I’ll report them later.

Taipei: 20-Dec-2016

‘Tis the season for the disposal of the former TRANSAISA AIRWAYS fleet. The first of their aircraft left here today. Airbus A320 B-22316 (msn 5055) has become D-AAAN (hex 3C442E) and ferried down to XSP from Songshan using its reg as a call-sign. Not wishing to get too far ahead of myself, but I can also report that B-22322 (msn 7356) has become D-AAAP and has also flown the coop and gone to XSP. With thanks to Skyliner for some of that.

“Tis also the season for forgetting to update the Songshan Movements (which is what I initially did with the movements for the 19th).

UPDATED WITH TSA’s movements.

‘Tis the season for winter maintenance with VIRGIN ATLANTIC B747 G-VAST arriving in Xiamen and KLM A330-200 PH-AOA departing from there today. For the sake of completeness (I did report its arrival after all), VIRGIN Boeing 747-400 G-VLIP departed from there on 17-DEC too.

Tis also the season for new aircraft. My newest toy, B-18903, will be leaving Toulouse at about 1700 local time this evening.

JIN AIR started using Boeing 777-200ERs on their morning service into here last week. HL7734 kicked things off on the 12th, there was a pig on the 13th but it’s been a triple ever since.

Reclusive Astra B-20001 made a brief appearance this evening. I have seen it before, but only once or twice. Not entirely sure, but I think it’s based at Taichung. Gulfstream G650 N711SW also arrived this evening. I thought this had been in recently, but my SBS logs tell me this is the first time I’ve picked it up since it became a G650. That did get the scorers attention, but further investigation showed that I’ve seen it at Changi.

Ex-China Airlines B737s B-18607 and B-18608

Two of the stored CHINA AIRLINES B737-800s left Taipei (TPE) on the evening of 16-DEC-2016. They both ferried to the States so my previous information that they were destined for the ROC AIR FORCE would seem to be wrong…

B-18607 (139/29104) has become N142MD with a hex of A0AB35
B-18608 (141/28406) has become N319CR with a hex of A36882
