B733 & mid-life B738

Looking at the seat map, it would be a B738

No EDI/ GLA flights either. Anyone in the know care to shed light?

Jet2's G-GDFB (B733) has been clipped by a Ryanair B737 while parked at EMA.

Nothing worse for a bird than having its wings clipped.......sorry !!!!

TSR2 30th Apr 2019 15:28

Was it a hit and run.

Aso 30th Apr 2019 16:09

Was a RYR aircraft so I assume that LS will have to pay a surcharge for the service :bored:

sixchannel 30th Apr 2019 19:13

Was GDFB due to fly out somewhere or was it 'resting?
If it were on a schedule, what replaced it?
At 27 yrs old that clout by RYR might have signed its death warrant. Possibly.

Jethro's reporting tonight that the second Air Tanker A330-243 (G-VYGM) lease has been extended to full time till the end of Nov 2022.

Looks like both A330's will be year round leases now!

G-DRTU
 
Just returning to MAN this evening after serviceability flight EXS055B. Out over Ireland at various altitudes.
Ready to go into Summer service?

Thats the last thing they need as they gear up for the summer season. I would imagine they'd try all they can to get it fixed to operate as normal.
Into winter however, might be a different story, as the B738's have been replacing the B733's.

G-DRTF paint scheme question
 
Ok, its Slow Saturday do please allow an Anorak question.
Just seen that G-DRTF with silver grey/red livery has a vertical white and red stripe on the left side, immediately behind cockpit.
Others in same scheme don't have it but my check was quite cursory - there may may be others.
Is there a significance in this stripe?
(Ignore Mrs sixchannel who reckons its where the cockpit was zipped on when they built it.)

Thanks Garstag. Never thought of that. Much obliged.
​​​​​Cant see it on others or on the white and blues. Is it being rolled out across the fleet?

It's actually on quite a few of their aircraft already ;)

Thanks again. I'll take a closer look on next flight - LS613 ex EMA 14/5. No airbridges so even Mr Unobservant should be able to spot it. ;-)

Flying Wild 4th May 2019 18:00

It’s not exactly new. It’s been on Jet2 aircraft for a couple of years now, after some incidents with poorly positioned air bridges damaging aircraft.

Same reason why Phillip insisted that all the flap trap covers were dayglo.
