However I thought it was worth taking time to report the following. Something pinging A88CFD landed at TPE in the early hours … Continue reading »

Taipei: 28-Nov-2016

Taoyuan. N407KZ left this morning pinging A4C79B and calling either [GTI8352] or [GTI9410]. I don’t know if it had been painted in a new colour scheme before it left.

China Airlines A350-941 B-18901

I got Hung-Hsin, Hu’s permission to use his photo of N747BC in my last post. But friends and neighbours, working on the theory that it’s easier to get forgiveness than permision, I freely I admit I stole this one from him! I’ll pay my dues with a coffee at a certain rooftop restaurant. Smiley
