Are Eastern really short of Saabs or pilots?
I assume there are 3 on the IAC contract, 1 appears to be working on the Aberdeen-Newcastle-Southampton tomorrow with an ATR72 on the Stavangers (with a trip to Newcastle early afternoon) and an ERJ135 working the Norwich-Aberdeens. So where are the other 2 Saabs

Missing SAABs

So if they have 6 SAABs and 4 are accounted for (3 on IAC and the other on the ABZ-SOU).... as MME said where are the other two...

Also it begs the question where are the two new ones, one of which was due last week??

Saab 2000's at ABZ

There is also one parked at the Eastern Hanger at ABZ. I'm sure there are 5 here all together.

Eastern Saabs

The thing is Eastern are pretty smart, they have a E135 and a ATR72 operating some of their scheduled Saab routes, thus allowing their new client to get used to the Saab. They didn't get where they are now by not thinking ahead.

Anybody know who is behind the regular Haugesund - Durham Tees charters usually run on a weekend (Fri/Sat/Sun) Presume its some gas or oil company or other chemicals? Usually uses a J41.

No I'm just interested as I live near MME. I was thinking it had to be related to an oil or gas company given there is loads of them in this area!

Guys unless there is some humour in your responses that I'm missing give the guy a break, check his posting history and you'll see he's an enthusiast in these days of gloom it's good to see some enthusiasm

No need to come over all aggressive secret squirrel, if you don't know or don't want to contribute in a meaningful way then say bugger all!

I'm sure mmeteesside is no threat to Eastern's business! Unless he's a budding Baby Branson!

There is usually a T3 J41 positions into ABZ from HAU on a Sun evening, I assume it's all connected to the aforementioned charter.

Stupid comment about mme teesside as you say he is only an enthusiast

Its not Willy Walsh (Although I suspect he could do a better job)

Leave MME alone he means no harm just intrested to see his local airport get more business.
