Beautiful set of pictures,,,,,would love to see more.....

BTW i think thats the M Rats 380 starting takeoff roll in the second last pic. If so then quite surpirised that Al Ain can handle 380s as well.
Nice to see the first of the type and the latest from Airbus Industries at the same airport

BTW African Queen, do you work for Midex or at Al Ain Airport.
PM me if you want to,

Thanks once again,
HJM

Thanks for the pics.
really liked the second pic of A380s. Nice comparison between one of the largest aircrafts ever made and a tiny little GA trainer (I believe of Horizon, could be wrong)

Also in the third pic, number 3 engine reverser seems to be deployed!!!!!!!wondering why??????

Anyways overall really nice pics.

Well,
they have ripped all the plastic coverings off the B747 so maybe it will actually move sometime in the near future

I hope they clean up all the "rust" stains on the tail when they paint the new registration on.

they indeed planning on operating the -200F at the end of this month

the A300s are used as much as the pilots can fly them x still 3/7 freq. to BEY/ORY plus occasional charters x germany is coming on-line next

anyone still suggesting Midex would be going under ???

Not as of right now with there only being one 74 on the property. Several of the A-300 guys are still current is the 742 also.

What money can't buy

It will never fly.
Don't spend too much effort in this unless you are really desperate.
There is no organisation behind it. The UEA will revoke the AOC at the first audit.

Good Place!

That is very true, good outfit to work for and they treat thier crews well. I think is a good startup and they will grow for sure.
