Hex Codes

Bits and Pieces: 1-Jul-2017

Is it really the 1st July? Where does the time go… Some of the following is a little old but I’ve included it for the sake of completeness. There’s also some new stuff though, so pay attention… CHINA AIRLINES A new service to London Gatwick using Airbus A350-900s will commence on 1-Dec-2107. Initially the service … Continue reading »

China Airlines B-18907 A350 Hex Code

My new toy’s hex is 8990F4 which used to belong to MANDARIN AIRLINES Embraer 190 B-16826 (which I believe is currently stored at Warsaw as M-ABJD). Just thought you’d like to know… Smiley, Taoyuan, 27-May-2017.

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 »

Gulfstream G650 B-88322

With thanks to Mr. Gulfstream for the heads-up, I can report that we have another piece of Savannah Succulence on the island. What’s not to like about that? Gulfstream N635GA (msn 6235) was recently cancelled to Taiwan and has been reported as B-88322. By lucky coincidence I’ve had a hex of 89915B on my SBS … Continue reading »

Far Eastern Air Transport MD-83 B-28017

Ok, here’s some dodgy arithmetic (adding 2 and 2 and quite possibly not making 4). Hex 899075 belongs to a FAR EASTERN AIR TRANSPORT MD-83. Having tied-up my SBS logs with a visual sighting at TSA last week, I’m now fairly sure it belongs to B-28017 (line/msn 2052/53166). However, there are a couple of caveats. … Continue reading »

RoC Air Force Fokker 50 5002

Not sure if any of the RoC Air Force Fokker 50 hex codes are known. Anyway, I managed to tie one up today. 5002 is 899181. I’m pretty sure 5001 is 899180 but can’t confirm it 100%. Oh, and I have no clue about 5003: any info would be gratefully received. Smiley, Taoyuan, 30-Apr-2017. Credits: … 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 »

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 »

Taoyuan International 30-Dec-2016 to 7-Jan-2017.

Taoyuan: Not that much going on here really. There was one A350 delivery though! I’ve only reported the dates on which something happened. I have to start with news of a couple of omissions from the last TPE report: ATALAS B747 N412MC arrived on 24-DEC and ANA pig JA55AN departed after maintenance on 29-DEC. 31st … Continue reading »

Taipei: 25-Dec-2016 to 29-Dec-2016

It’s very much a case of short rations for my last post of the year. I’ll start by wishing everyone a happy new year (prosperous or otherwise). Taoyuan: 25th Dec CATHAY PACIFIC A350-900 B-LRI made a first visit this morning (now, where’s that pesky B-LRH?). NIPPON CARGO Boeing 747-800F┬áJA11KZ may well have been a first … Continue reading »

Taipei: 23-Dec-2016

Happy Christmas! Taoyuan. CHINA AIRLINES’ 3rd A350-900 B-18903 arrived at lunchtime. It’s msn 66 and has a hex of 899013 (which as far as I can tell has never been used before). 2 more ex-TNA A321s departed. I think the tie-ups below are correct. Delivery: B-18903 A359 China Airlines: (13:06/-) from TLS as [CAL1710] Biz: … Continue reading »

Taipei: 22-Dec-2016

‘Tis the season to be jolly, so I’d like to wish everyone a very Happy Christmas. None of that Seasons Greetings wish-wash here I’ll have you know. Smiley Taoyuan. The details of the 2 departing A320s are not yet known. Biz: B-99999 E35L: (-/?) Interesting Movements: A6-EEN A380 Emirates: [UAE366/UAE367] B-LRC A359 Cathay Pacific: [CPA474/CPA475] … Continue reading »

Taipei 21-Dec-2016

‘Tis the season for having dark thoughts about why multi-national companies are so obsessed with their year-end profit especially when their financial year runs til April. Airbus are doing all they can to ruin my Christmas by trying to deliver me 2 A350s by 31-DEC. We got one on the 23-DEC, and may get the … Continue reading »

Ex-China Airlines B737s B-18607 and B-18608

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 »
