There’s something of a TRANSASIA AIRWAYS theme about this post, but first of all I must clear up any confusion caused by a typo in the last two movement reports. B-16307 was the A330 that ferried to IND on Friday 18-NOV; not B-16707 (which is of course a Boeing 777).
Talking of Boeing 777’s, while I was taking photos today (19-NOV) the first 777 ever built (well, it’s line #1) B-HNL of CATHAY PACIFIC came in; Rolls-Royce powered too. Gotta love it.

It was TRANSASIA’s A330 B-22101 turn to do a quick test flight today. As you’ll see it wasn’t quite the hour long flight that I’ve recommended they do for these flights. Guess that’s a job for Monday…

First of all, I can confirm that TRANSASIA A320 B-22322 is in their colours, although, like B-22320, its minus the stripes on the upper fuselage. Interestingly, I’ve now found out that it was all white when it was delivered, so I suppose it went to Angeles for painting.
Here’s a photo.
There was some Gulfstream G650 action today. All hallelujahs accepted.
Ex-TRANSASIA A321 N371QQ left for the States and the scrapyard. It ended up in Indianapolis which is where B-16307 is.
Delivery (or is that re-delivery?):
