Changi: 30th August 2015

I thought Falcon 900EX N28VL might have been a winner, but it turns out I saw it at its base in Honkers earlier in the year. That meant that today turned out to be the first time this month that the scorer’s weren’t troubled (I reached the bottom of the barrel with a THAI AIRASIA … Continue reading »

Changi: 29th August 2015.

For those wondering if I was slipping back into my old lazy ways when I missed yesterday’s report there’s no need to worry just yet. It’s just that I’ve lost the will to live… Having said that, a bit of Russian heavy metal  livened things up today. It came in from KHI and departed to … Continue reading »

Hex code for Phenom 300 PK-BSW

Phenom 300 N330AG (msn 50500078) used to be a regular visitor to Seletar. Earlier this year, it became PK-BSW and it has been in a few times using a dodgy hex of 9D2051. It was at Seletar yesterday and around the same time that it left, my SBS picked up hex 8A04B9 using a call-sign of BSW, … Continue reading »

Seletar: 28th August 2015.

Another quick report on the airliner situation here. Changes/additions from last time in bold. Embraer/Fokker/Hawker ramps PH-LMT F50 (Travel Air) ex-P2-TAF: not seen today but possibly in the hangars? VH-NHP F100 Network Aviation: departed on 22nd Aug PR-OAR F100 (AVIANCA Brazil): according to Skyliner this is now in full QANTASLink scheme and wears VH-NHC but … Continue reading »

Singapore: 26th August 2015.

First off, one I missed both literally and figuratively; SINGAPORE AIRLINES A330 9V-SSH arrived from Toulouse on 23-AUG. Having got that out of the way, there’s only one thing worth talking about today. INDONESIA AIRASIA X A330 PK-XRA arrived from Bali; presumably for maintenance as it didn’t depart. Maintenance: PK-XRA A333 AirAsia X Indonesia: (09:57/-) … Continue reading »

Singapore: 25th August 2015.

After a short lull, the 1st visits resumed today with an EVA triple-seven (I’m pleased to report that they have all been in now), and a fairly new TURKISH A330. There was bit of maintenance action today with a LUFTHANSA MD11 departure to Honkers, and an AIRCALIN A320 arrival (for painting I think). The JETSTAR … Continue reading »

Changi: 23rd August 2015.

Update in RED. It seems the POLAR AIR CARGO Boeing 747 is a weekly service. Timings today were the same as last week, so it’s not one we’ll actually be seeing very often. Today’s offering was probably a first visit; it’s certainly not been on my SBS before. The TIGERAIR AUSTRALIA was a first visit … Continue reading »

Changi: 22nd August 2015.

An even longer wait for the first-time visitor today, but we got one in the end in the shape of KOREAN AIR Boeing 777 HL8006. Also in today on what was its second visit was CHINA EASTERN Airbus A330 B-5975. This one pings a hex of 7803BF which used to be used by a CHINA … Continue reading »

Changi: 21st August 2015.

We had to wait a long time for our first ‘first visitor’ today, but JETSTAR AIRWAYS Boeing 787 VH-VKI duly obliged just before 1800. The ETIHAD morning arrival was an A333 today instead of the usual B789. Little else to talk about other than the departing SCOOT which I’ve mentioned elsewhere. VH-FIX (much like its nation’s … Continue reading »

Scoot Boeing 777 9V-OTE retired.

Need any Scoot triple-sevens? Well, you may soon be s**t out of luck. Another one left the fleet yesterday (21-AUG-15). 9V-OTE Boeing 777-212ER (msn 28519) ferried  from Changi to Anchorage en-route to Victorville where it will be stored. This now leaves 9V-OTC and 9V-OTD in the SCOOT  777 fleet. Credit: NINER VICTOR

Singapore: 21st August 2015.

1st visits aside, there’s not much to talk about. BATIK A320 PK-LAG is one of the two that spent some time at Seletar last year. Gulfstream N401HB isn’t exactly common, but it has been here a couple of times. Airliners: HS-LTT B739 Thai Lion Air: (11:03/12:41) 1st visit. JA840A B788 All Nippon Airlines: (16:50/22:26) 1st … Continue reading »

Seletar 21st August 2015

I was at Seletar again today for a meeting and, well, it seemed rude not to take advantage… There are a couple of additions from earlier in the week which I’ve highlighted in bold. And there’s a correction in red. Embraer/Fokker/Hawker ramps PH-LMT F50 (Travel Air) ex-P2-TAF VH-NHP F100 Network Aviation: air-tested while I was … Continue reading »
