Taipei: 19-Nov-2016

Taoyuan. There’s something of a TRANSASIA AIRWAYS theme about this post, but first of all I must clear up any confusion caused by a typo in the last two movement reports. B-16307 was the A330 that ferried to IND on Friday 18-NOV; not B-16707 (which is of course a Boeing 777). Talking of Boeing 777’s, … Continue reading »
