Taipei Songshan: 25-Jun to 01-Jul-2017

A few things to note this week. Sovereign N578AB (25th), Challenger D-AFAD (26th), King N350KF (30th and 1st), LAS VEGAS BBJ N887LS (1st), and G150 VH-PFV (1st). Little else to tear me away from watching the tennis  though.

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 Songshan: 18-24 Jun 2017

Slightly later than usual with the report this week. Those who worry about me slowing down in my dotage will be reassured to hear that alcohol rather than senility is to blame (although the end results are often confused with each other). There’s been a lot of runway changes recently and as I may have … 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 Songshan: 11-17 Jun 2017

Another steady week here. Nothing really brilliant but still a few things worth pointing out. Nicest of was probably UNIVERSAL ENTERTAINMENT’s A318 N777UE. Close second would be MINSHENG Lineage B-3219. There was another Lineage too: N966MS. As well as these, there were some nice smaller biz as well: Challengers N898DL and 9H-VFH; Global 9H-VJS; Gulfstreams … 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 Songshan: 04-10 June

I suspect no one saw the best visitor here this week: SR JET Legacy 500 B-3385 was in for an hour early on 9-JUN. Of the rest, HYUNDAI’s BBJ HL8290 was probably the star, but Cessna U206 Float Plane D-EBIW has to be a close second. There were a some unusual biz visitors too including … 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 Songshan: 28-May – 03-Jun 2017

Another week, another Frenchie. Another Gulfstream G650 too. The Frenchie was Falcon 900LX F-HRAY and the Gulfstream was N368GW. There were some other G650s too including B-88322 making a return from wherever it’s been hiding recently. The week was ended off quite nicely with VISTAJET MALTA Challenger 9H-VFH. One I’m not sure about was Embraer 145 … 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 Songshan: 21-27 May 2017

Sir Thomas of Cruise was in town this week to promote his latest movie. The Short One arrived on his Gulfstream IV-SP N808T on 24-May and departed the following evening. The 24th was a busy day with Gulfstream G450 N483CM and VISTAJET MALTA Global 9H-VJM also in. Normally one of those would have earned a photo … 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 »

Taipei Songshan: 14-20 May 2017

My recent choices for ‘star visitor of the week’ seem to be akin with story of Goldilocks And The 3 Bears. Two weeks ago it was a spindle: Cirrus-Design SR-22, last week some heavy metal: an Antonov An-124, and this week it’s something pretty much in the middle: an A318. GCL Poly Energy’s  B-6936 arrived … 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 Songshan: 7-13 May 2017

Little to report this week other than another Japanese visitor. This time it was Sovereign JA680C. On the basis that it’s easier (and quicker) to get forgiveness than permission, I’ve ‘alf-inched’ a photo from Flickr. You can see the full version by 阿樺樺 here. She arrived on 12-May. Another one worthy of mention was Gulfstream G550 … Continue reading »
