D-AHID flew from storing at TEV to HAM today and rumours says she will get a new landing gear and will resume then flying from MUC https://www.flightradar24.com/data/aircraft/d-aihd#10c59afd I guess that explains why the fleet jumped from 12 to 15 today. Because D-AIHK and a couple of other frames ...Jump to post

All we need is to strap some wings, vertical and horizontal stabilizers, at least 2 jet cats, and this thing is off to the Bahamas!Jump to post
Look for 1401, 1402 and 184 to be the next widebodies retired. 184 is a lease return if I'm not mistaken. Ships 1401, 1402 are the 767-300s I know. And it seems that Ship 184 will be the 2nd retirement this year for the 767-300ERs. There supposed to be 3 ER retirements this year unless they resched...Jump to post
Quick rundown on the 767-300ER retirement so far: *1st frame was N1501P (Previously A4O-GL for Gulf Air. Also not sure if this was a high or low J). 27 years at retirement with its first flight on 10/5/1990 and retired 12/1/2017 with its final flight from SEA-SBD. 2 GE CF6-80C2B4 engines powered thi...Jump to post
Sounds really well! I hope they consider it! The A350s are truly a unique aircraft in Lufthansas fleet!Jump to post
(and, someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I still don't think their 757 fleet has been fully winglet modified yet) They haven't. I saw a 757 at DTW a few days ago that didn't have winglets yet. There is are certain versions of Delta's 757-200s that does not included winglets at all. I believe they...Jump to post
Slight derailment - but this has been bugging me to no end: does anyone think the end of the fuel tax break over the NRA dehacle will lead to an earlier retirement of the 752's? I hope to god not... Now that I think of that I am curious to find out as well. But tbh I don't think it's gonna effect 7...Jump to post
Let's not forget about AeroMexico's 777-200ER that were retired 2 days ago. Forgot what regeatration was the last bird to leave the fleet. Any plans for these planes? Scrap? Wet/Dry lease? Part out?Jump to post
The 8th A350-900XWB (D-AIXH) has been delivered one week ago.

One of the most beautiful aircrafts to look at and to hopefully fly on. That's and it's longest variant (The pencil plane) the 757-300. Also I have one question to ask, what is currently the oldest 757-200 flying at the moment as of 2018? Delta for one has some pretty old planes, but I believe there...Jump to post
What a beautiful A321 in the livery! Hope one of the A319s/A320s get this! Probably not gonna happen but would still look pretty freaking awesome!Jump to post
Not exactly down the road, HHH has been hampered for years by the short runway and yearly totals for some years were very good. I could see DL returning with service to ATL and AA with CLT. HHH has its own market and people prefer to land at their destination, not in another state. In the past the ...Jump to post
Without some major subsidies I can't see anyone serving HHH after the Dash 8s are gone. No sympathy though, they have SAV just down the road.

Okay here's where the aircraft is currently located. Not sure why its been in hibernation for a year but it has to be within reason.
I wasn't aware that it ceased flights. Do you happen to know why it doesn't fly anymore? I have no idea lol, that was one of the reasons why I was asking. I noticed that there were alot of old videos and photos of the AN-225 and went to do quick research on where the frame was located and it hasn't...Jump to post
Hello! It's been a very long while (1 year and 2 months to be exact) since the Antonov AN-225 has performed a flight. Are there any plans to get this giant six engine monster machine back up in the air, or is it game over for the beast? Thanks for the answers and have an awesome rest of your week! :...Jump to post

Glad everyone is okay and landed safely. That looks extremely scary! Especially the video with the engine shaking like that. I'd say they need to do a full inspection of the aircraft before putting that plane back to service. Ain't no telling if a couple of bolts or other components might of shifted...Jump to post
Does anyone know why DL275, N501DN, diverted to ANC yesterday while enroute from DTW>NRT? https://flightaware.com/live/flight/N501DN/history/20180210/1726Z/KDTW/RJAA I think it could be because of the Winter Storm they had, there were two major ones over the past week.

To me, the rules don't seem too bad. Majority of them seem a bit strict, but I can defiantly see you guys want to enforce stuff. Also I have encountered a couple of people that were.......

R.I.P. To those who died in the crash. So sad to hear this. Before they reported about a helicopter collision, I was kinda thinking that it was similar to the AirAisa A320 that was climbing rapidly and then dropped to the ground. Now it doesn't look like the plane was climbing rapidly, but did it lo...Jump to post
Hello everyone! As you many know already Delta currently has total of 57 767-300ERs in their fleet. Within the fleet are a mix of frames equipped with either the Pratt & Whitney PW4060s or the General Electric CF6-80 engines. However (And I don't know if it's just me), I started to notice that m...Jump to post
If I'm not mistaken, everytime I pass by near the airport in Atlanta (Depending on what highway and what exit you would get off), there is this really old frames that looks like a 727 owned by FedEx just sitting there with no engines in the middle of exit loop.

It doesn't look too bad. It's more business like as others say, but it looks a little simple. Still not too bad but something I will have to get use to. To be honest, I think the painting process for the entire fleet could be a quick 3-4 years. Could be less since there's only about 229+ aircraft th...Jump to post
Who cares if it looks good on the A320ceo or 737 Next Generation family, I like how they look on all of them! I can't wait to see the A320s head over to ATL soon, something worth spotting!Jump to post

R.I.P. A345 and A346
The renderings to me look pretty nice, I especially love the black tail with the crane on the fuselage, however I don't think there would be time for the A346 to painted since those aircraft are going to be retired and replaced with the A359.
