N2052A part 2

I know that many of you get the email version of the blog and so don’t necessarily view the web version so won’t see updates or comments (tut, tut). So I thought I’d publish this update to an earlier post separately. Alan from Global Trek Aviation has told me that my unknown hex A1A735 is … Continue reading »

N2052A

A plea for help. I’ve had hex A1A735 with a call-sign of N2052A on my SBS recently. That hex does equate to N2052A so that bit makes sense. N2052A itself is currently a reserved registration. Looking on the FAA website, there was a Cessna 208 registered N2052A which was cancelled to China as B-9430 some … Continue reading »

Daily Air DHC-6 B-55575

Taking advantage of my sudden burst of enthusiasm for blogging, here’s a snippet that FR24 doesn’t seem to have picked up; I guess I’ll should tell them but I can’t find an obvious way of doing so on their website. DAILY AIR DHC-6 B-55575 is using a hex of 8990C5 which used to belong to … Continue reading »

Taipei 21-Dec-2016

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 … Continue reading »

No report from me today as one of my A350s is sick and I’m halfway through what will probably a 24 hour shift (and no, I’m not complaining; this is what I do!).
