Given the lack of passengers on Flybe routes flown by Eastern, I very much doubt it.

Re: Ryanair Summer 2018 Routes News & Base Openings

Hoping they'll open up a base at Cardiff Why on earth would you want them at your local airport? Dreadful airline and they tend to 'infest' airports once they turn up, driving other half decent carriers away and constantly expanding . Awful. I mean which airport would want an airline that's constan...

Re: Monarch in trouble (again)...?

The CAA forward planning may be adding to the uncertainty, but forewarned is forearmed, so whilst it may not look good, the CAA is doing exactly the right thing. Nothing worse than footage of holidaymakers stuck abroad with no plans to get home. Anyway, I think it is in the public domain that MON ar...

Re: UA61 EWR-HNL Encountering Severe Turbulence

There is a difference between flying through a cumulonimbus vs. going around it. No pilot (not one) will fly through one. Even within fronts there are holes where the planes fly through. Hmm.... perhaps not willingly, but it has happened and does happen. Where you thought there was that hole before...

Re: Loganair / Flybe Cargo

Now seen a few shots of G-LGNN at Glasgow in the tartan tail livery. It does actually look pretty smart. Presume eventually all the aircraft will receive the same style of tartan. Personally, would have been a nice touch to paint the aircraft with different tartans but appreciate for understandable ...

Re: Loganair / Flybe Cargo

Some of those Saab 340s though are rather elderly - I recall one or two of the B-models flying around for Business Air in the 90s! However they have the capacity for the market they serve & there doesn't appear to be a similar-sized aircraft currently in manufacture now. Saab themselves of cours...

Re: 727 at DCA?

Bit confused. You were walking near the approach path, where aircraft are below 1000ft so easily recognizable. Yet you don't know if you saw a 727? Can't think of many aircraft that would look like a 727 with the only similar trijet being the long-gone HS Trident!
