Quote "Is the British Government really going to rely on Blue Islands and Aurigny for Regional Connectivity on the South Coast?"

SOU Restart of Services

Southampton will not only be served by Blue Islands to Jersey, and Aurigny to Alderney and Guernsey. Loganair start services next week to Newcastle, Glasgow, and Edinburgh. Eastern start on 22/06 to Aberdeen, Newcastle, Belfast, and Manchester, then Leeds/Bradford and Teeside. They will slowly ramp up schedules and destinations through Jul, Aug, and Sep.

Not forgetting Dublin also in July with Eastern. Still waiting to hear on AMS & CDG!

There is 2 Aircraft Maintenance Companies at Saarbrucken Airport that does work on the Dash 8.
Might be flown to Saarbrucken Airport for engine changes.
As one engine on G-PRPE might belong to G-JEDW, and one engine on G-JEDW might belong to G-PRPE.

Well G-JECK has had a ground incident today in Aberdeen. Looks like it hit a Loganair E145 whilst taxiing and the Q400’s cockpit is wedged underneath the right hand engine on the Emb. Loss of brake pressure whilst taxiing? Wouldn’t be the first time...

I think that one is owned by ex airline flybe so part of the tiny amount of assets left.

The administrators will be pleased.

Loss of brake pressure when taxying?!!! Well pull the big black and yellow striped handle marked park/emergency brake. That should do the trick.

Not if there is no pressure in the accumulator after being parked for months. (I mean the 1500psi N2)
