The government of Iran has a JT8D powered 707, I've no idea what kind of conversion this is 4453181 Martijn That fan spinner looks like a JT3D3B, you sure that ain't the long-duct retrofit that N88ZL got? Really? Hmm, I was sure I was told JT8D at some point, that's why I remembered it when reading...Jump to post
Blue Panorama's I-BPAC has been active around Cuba on behalf of Cubana. 734, apparently active as recent as two days ago.

Jeez that video is insane! Is that smoke coming from the severed tail or hydraulic fluid that's venting out?
Wow! Newly registered as EW-511TQ apparently. That is quite the step up from their existing AN-12 and IL-76 operation!

I think charging for water has really crossed the line. On my last BA flignt in January (LHR-VCE) at least the flight attendant remembered that I wouldn't buy it and brought me a cup of "free" water after the service was over. I think that one came from the aircraft water tank. I had a si...Jump to post
My question is, how does this even happen when the bag is left with all the others right next to the steps? There are a lot of ways this could have gone wrong. Most common I suppose is that the bag fell off the cart at the destination airport and therefor never made it to the baggage reclaim belt. ...Jump to post
My first thought was also, wow that plane seemed overloaded. Especially if those people had any luggage/cargo to bring along. I just can’t imagine Not necessarily. It's a crazy amount of people but their weight should be far below what the -76 can haul. Plus I doubt there is room for much baggage a...Jump to post
For me that's clearly AMS-PBM on Surinam's PZ-TCR
There are so many practical problems this will introduce rather then solve. How about safety? This will introduce an extreme hazard to an already dangerous work place. It's the ramp, that means that sooner or later people AND vehicles will go down into the hole and will fall onto the aircraft. Can y...Jump to post
Does anyone know what the Spanish Swift is planning in the US? Nothing in their current fleet has the legs to make it across the pond, so I'm kinda curious.
And that's why I don't like 4 wheeled suitcases on the ramp! Though thankfully I never had to run this far to get one..

Just from my years of browsing the Anet forums, I knew this was about Allegiant before even opening the thread!
I have to ask: WHO exactly was on that flight? It's in Russia, so it has to be some conspiracy, right? I mean, what better way to quietly dispose of someone then to destroy a civil airliner in a high-profile crash outside the nation's capital. As opposed to say, an assassination in a remote border ...Jump to post
For me the doors on the newer 737s are the biggest letdown. Its strange watching a brand new 739ER pull up to the gate. Factory fresh, shiny nacelles and slats, bright LED lighting... Only to have to pull that ridiculous 50's cabin door design open with 2 people because it's so heavy. It's just as b...Jump to post
To quote from the article; BSCA runway length The length of the runway at Charleroi Airport (2,550 meters) will also handicap the Air Belgium operations during the first years: on the outbound flights, the airline will limit the number of passengers to 257 and the airline will lose out on the normal...Jump to post
I hope that the other airlines will follow suit with similar policies, as they always seem to follow in each others footsteps! One thing I've said before but which continues to amaze me, is how this is strictly an American problem. I've dispatched many hundreds of flights over the years in AMS, with...Jump to post

I'm amazed that the three landing gear struts are still attached!

I turned around many a BA 767 in AMS, always loved working those flights! It's definitely a freighter, which they do manage to fill up nicely with passengers as well. Flown them 3 times, and I have to say I do think they are great aircraft. The current interior for the 32S out of LHR isn't half bad ...Jump to post
Some input from me as a former ground dispatcher.. First of all, I've had wrongfully boarded passengers on my flights at AMS way more often then I care for. Always exclusively the result of some poorly trained, and uninterested gate agent. I've had passengers with bright orange, home printed Easyjet...Jump to post
Air Astana has started nonstop AMS-GUW (Atyrau) service, which is where a lot of the oil traffic is headed.! KC has had this route for ages! Always a very heavy cargo load, but I've seen it depart/arrive with as few as 6 passengers on some days. Rarely full, generally well below 100 pax. Hopefully ...Jump to post
That's interesting! I ususally take in flight mags from the airlines I've flown on, and I always noticed that Air France's are also really big and heavy. Though as pretty much al LCC's still have in flight mags, including FR I think, there must be some way to make money of it!
It is indeed high time we start compulsively comparing lists and make each other jealous! Though my criteria for airport logging vary a bit, pretty much that it has to have an IATA code. I don't count any ICAO-code only airports. New airports for 2017 marked in green. I still miss the U and X, and I...Jump to post
Wow, this sounds just like that episode "Nosedive" of the series Black Mirror. I suggest you go watch it! And after that stop worrying about a rating a freaking taxi company gives YOU. What's next, the cashier at the store will give me a rating when I buy a carton of milk? https://en.wikip...Jump to post
That's pretty cool! Did you rebuild this from an existing model of AMS? I recognize piers E (extended?) F, G and H (with jetbridges?) as well as taxiway markings from AMS!
78 replies and no one is talking about sending the CS100 on a TATL trip? I'm disappointed and relieved at the same time

That's horrible news! I've worked with SX for many years, and had the pleasure to fly them once, and they are a fantastic little airline! Nice aircraft, nice crew, and very professional especially considering the size of the operation. I would be really sad to see them go.. I hope they find a new in...Jump to post
Northwest for sure! As an AMS resident I still miss those red tails lined up, an interesting mix of DC-10s, 742's and 330's if you were lucky enough! Even the silver livery was a welcome sight. I had the pleasure of flying NWA a number of times, on the 330, 32S and D95. Only once on a 319 still wear...Jump to post
I flew PK a few years ago on their AMS-IST 5th freedom segment. The cabin wasn't up to par by any means, but the service wasn't bad at all. The food was very decent and the crew was friendly! Just don't expect to depart on time..
Hi C152sy, thanks for sharing! Something out of the ordinary, a nice read, the same for your MA-60 report. A proper vintage experience for sure with an interior like that!
Hi y'all. I am a student at Pilot Flight Academy in Sandefjord, Oslo, and i began to think about buying a plane after I have landed a job (no pun intended). I live near the sea, so I thought i should by a waterplane, as it would eliminate the need for storage. I began searching around on the intern...Jump to post
