Taipei Taoyuan round up – February 2019

The end may be in sight for A380 production, but it looks like its future in TPE is assured for some time to come. See the comments about EMIRATES in the News section. NOK AIR B737-800 HS-DBG was in and out in the very early hours of 9-Feb. Little else worthy of comment in, but … Continue reading »

Taipei Taoyuan round up – December 2018.

Short rations this time as I was away for a week or so. There’ll be even less next month as I’m going to be spending most of this month in Beijing (where I may even learn something about the Trent 1000 – see the note about 9V-OJG below). Anyway, onwards! Plenty of neos this month, … Continue reading »

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 »

China Airlines take delivery of their 1st A350
