Taipei Taoyuan: 24-30 Jun 2017

Unusually for TPE, pride of place goes to a biz this week. Sovereign N95TE was in an out on 28-JUN. And if that’s making you think ‘that’s not special’ it’s because there was little else about. ROYAL FLIGHT Boeing 767-300ER VP-BLC was in and out on 24-Jun but has been here before. There were a … Continue reading »

Taipei Taoyuan: 17-23 Jun 2017

Little to comment on really. The most interesting visitor was VP-BLG a ROYAL FLIGHT Boeing 767-300ER but it’s been in before (and like before, I missed it!). For a while I thought we were going to get all of the AIR CANADA Boeing 777-9s in one after the other but the sequence of first visits … Continue reading »

Taipei Taoyuan: 10-16 Jun 2017

First up is a grateful thank you to those awfully nice schedulers at AIR CANADA who sent us a different Triple-Seven every day this week; much appreciated! Staying with Canada, SKYSERVICE Learjet 45 C-GEJD was a nice visitor at the end of the week. The only other biz of note was Gulfstream G550 N881WR. EMIRATES … Continue reading »

Taipei Taoyuan: 03-09 June 2017

Big news this week was the start of an AIR CANADA service from Vancouver. First one was on 9-JUN using Boeing 787-9 C-FRSR (and on a personal note friends and neighbours, that puppy was well received indeed!). [ACA11] has an ETA of 14:15 and [ACA12] departs at 15:55 and I believe it’s a daily flight. … Continue reading »

Taipei Taoyuan: 27-May – 02-Jun 2017

The highlight for me this week was the balloon in Taoyuan City that was the subject of my last post. It was just as well I saw that as over here at TPE it a bit slow. We did have one very nice biz but, unfortunately for me, it was Seletar based Gulfstream G150 VH-PFV. … Continue reading »

Taipei Taoyuan: 20-26 May

Quite a bit to talk about this week, so let’s get right into it… SCOOT Boeing 787-8 9V-OFH made a first visit on 20-May and also returned later on the same day. We had the last of the Antonov AN-124 visits on 21-May with UR-82027 arriving (this time from (KRW) not (DAC)) and departing the … Continue reading »

China Airlines A350 B-18907

CHINA AIRLINES have taken delivery of their 6th A350. B-18907 (msn 105) arrived at Taoyuan this afternoon (25-May). Here’s a photo of her at Toulouse just before departure. And no, Keith, the wheelbarrow isn’t for my salary; it’s not big enough! Smiley, Taoyuan, 25-May-2017.

Bits and pieces: 21-May-2017

CHINA AIRLINES Boeing 737s B-18605 (130/28404) and B-18606 (132/28405) are currently WFU at TPE. ‘605 is all white, and ‘606 is also white but has the remnants of the CAL colour-scheme on its nose. There was also another CAL Boeing 737-800 in bare metal here last week, but I think that was one being repainted … Continue reading »

Taipei Taoyuan: 14-19 May 2017.

The ANTONOV AIRLINES’ An-124s dominated proceedings this week, with UR-28029 returning again and UR-82027 also turning up. All have come from Dhaka and departed to Turkmenbashi. I’m told there will be one more flight next week. After a period of absence, JC INTERNATIONAL returned again with pretty much a daily service (there wasn’t one on … Continue reading »

Taipei Taoyuan: 6-12 May 2017

Well, take a look at this puppy… From the sublime to the ridiculous is a phrase that springs to mind this week. Last week’s star visitor to the island was JA007F the dinky little Japanese Cirrus Design SR-22 which was over at TSA. This week (as you’ve just seen) it was a slightly more substantial … Continue reading »

Taipei Taoyuan: 29-Apr – 5-May 2017

Not too much doubt about the star visitors this week: STARFLYER A320 JA08MC was in an out on 3-May and JA05MC was in and out on 5-May. Actually, if Maltese Falcon 7X 9H-FCB which arrived from Haneda on 1-May had been a frame rather than paint, it might have taken pride of place. But it … Continue reading »

Taipei Taoyuan: 23-28 Apr

Some highlights from Taoyuan. There was a strange one on 25-Apr. Something with a hex of C02971 was in and out over lunchtime. That hex equates to C-FPSA but my big database of aeroplanes tells me that reg used to belong to a Dornier 228 that was sold in Indonesia in 2014. This hex was … Continue reading »

Taipei Taoyuan: 18-22 Apr

A brief round-up of the goings-on at TPE this week. Only two things of note. EVA AIRWAYS A333 B-16308 ferried to Hong Kong on 19-APR in full VIM AIRLINES colours but still as B-16308. And as mentioned elsewhere, JC Airlines have started service to TPE. Interesting Visitors 18/4 XU-997 A320 JC Airlines: (20:27/21:48) from (REP) … Continue reading »

Taipei Songshan: 18-22 April.

What’s that? Sick and tired at the thought of yet another ‘kin election? Well, here’s some Songshan biz from last week to take your mind of of things. 18/4 B-8128 G450: (-/dep) B-95995 BE4X: (arr/-) B-96999 GL6T: (arr/-) N899CH GL6T: (arr/-) 19/4 Qatari GLF6 A7-CGA departed (having arrived on 13-Apr).

JC International Airlines Start Service to Taiwan.

Recent Cambodian start-up JC INTERNATIONAL AIRLINES (QD/JJC) have started services from Cambodia to Taiwan. Currently the airline is operating a couple of ex-AIR BERLIN A320s which were delivered in March 2017. XU-998 (msn 7224) kicked things of on 17-Apr with a service to Taichung from Siam Reap and a departure to Phnom Penh. She was … Continue reading »
