Log from Kaohsiung: 11-Oct-2014.

An hour after leaving Honkers, we touched down in Kaohsiung. The airport is not the most dynamic of places, but it’s better now than it used to be with CHINA EASTERN, PEACH, and SPRING AIRLINES among the new carriers here. It also has a fairly good viewing area. I’ve included a couple of photos below, … Continue reading »

Log from Hong Kong: 11-Oct-2014.

As the header for the blog does mention “logs from other airports in the region”, I thought I’d share my logs from the trip North. It turns out that it’s 50% cheaper to fly SIN-HKG-KHH with Cathay/Dragonair than it is to go direct with Crash A Lot (China Airlines). So early on Saturday morning it … Continue reading »

Another break

I’m in Kaohsiung at the moment.  Back next Sunday (19-Oct) but the wife is staying behind for a week. That means I’m effectively single for that week; blogging is not likely to be at the top of the agenda. Smiley

HEX CODES With thanks to Chris Taylor I can report that 8A034E actually belongs to PK-CLE a SRIWIJAYA Boeing 737. Interestingly, Aerodata knows that, but GAS doesn’t. Anyway, as well as correcting that, I’ve also got details of another two for you. PK-TNC Fokker 50 (20240) TRANSNUSA = 09001B: My SBS thinks that this is … Continue reading »

HEX CODES Not tied-up too many of hex codes recently, and I am not 100% sure about this one. Craig saw it land at XSP, and there only seemed to be one possible candidate on the box at the time. So rather daringly putting 2 + 2 together: PK-ELI Beech 400A (msn RK-111)= 8A034E CHANGI … Continue reading »

Singapore: 05-Oct-2014.

CHANGI For the first time in a while, there’s some biz to talk about today. TAG AVIATION ASIA Challenger 850 M-DWWW was probably the most interesting as I don’t recall it being in before. There were also a couple of DEERJET Gulfstream G550’s; B-8100 and B-8273. Global 5000┬áM-TYRA finished off the smaller biz. On the … Continue reading »

Singapore: 04-Oct-2014.

CHANGI ETIHAD AIRWAYS A330 A6-EYT had an air-turn back from it’s flight down to Brisbane in the early hours. Apparently it was something to do with an unruly/drunk passenger. Little else to comment on apart from JA8971, an ANA Boeing 767, that hopped in from Paya. It’s been on maintenance there. BIZ MOVEMENTS: N188JT E135: … Continue reading »

CHANGI Here’s a fist look at AZUL’s latest aircraft. It’s VH-XFA which has recently come off lease from VIRGIN AUSTRALIA. It air-tested today. Photo is courtesy of De Xuan.

Singapore: 02-Oct-2014.

CHANGI No biz movements today. So, moving swiftly on. Well, er, actually there’s not much to move swiftly on to. ASIANA A321 HL7735 departed after a spell here on maintenance and that’s your lot. BIZ MOVEMENTS: I guess technically this section should be ‘nil points’ today… B-LIS G450: (-/-) B-8126 G550: (-/-) B-8168 G550: (-/-) … Continue reading »

Singapore: 01-Oct-2014

CHANGI The MIAT was a Boeing 737-800 today. I was pleasantly surprised to see that it was the new one, JU-1015, rather than one of the Irish registered ones. We’ve got a few Chines biz here at the moment, but there’s nothing to get too excited about. On the maintenance scene, DELTA swapped an A330 … Continue reading »

Singapore: 29-Sep-2014.

If there are any spotters visiting at the moment, it might be worth a trip to Seletar as ATR 42 HZ-A10 is currently sat outside. It was pinging on FR24 all afternoon (01-Oct) and I guess it will be leaving soon. Getting back to more mundane matters, the quiet spell at Changi has allowed me … Continue reading »

Singapore: 28-Sep-2014

CHANGI Oh dear, a little bit different to last Sunday! One visitor (which didn’t appear in this post at first) was AIR MAURITIUS Airbus A330 3B-NBL which I guess may have been in on some sort of state visit. BIZ MOVEMENTS: PK-RJP E135: (-/13:18) VP-BED A319: (-/11:01) B-LIS G450: (-/11:53) B-8202 FA7X: (-/11:22) N65XC GL5T: … Continue reading »
