Those VH-V** registered aircraft are being offered for sale... doubt in this would under operate in Ozjet

The 732 dismantled? Wouldnt they want to use that to Derby & Indonesia?

One of them has been parked up on the GA side for weeks and hasn't moved. A second has been parked up over at the International Airport, I think that's been flying every now and then. The third is around where the AAE 727 sits and hasn't moved in a while either.

Good for catching cob webs!

the only thing keeping their derby services going is the mining contract that supports it, otherwise one would think this would not be viable.

VH-OBN is the one thats been sitting on the ground. The other 2 fly regularly, OBN fly's once in a while.

VLH flew MEL-BNE today, VLI needs a C check and 3 engines, I think it was going to go to ASIA to get the C check done. I to heard that O7 was going to ops the 727F

Eng Aus,

OZJET used to do the work they do now with only 1 737. Is it because they're losing flying elsewhere that they're able to reposition them to Perth?

I hear the third 737 will be scrapped in ASIA shortly.

Engineer aus you say....

I think you have confused your aircraft.

VLI was C checked in June 2008 and has three good engines. VLH has been sitting outside John Holland's hangar for the past 6 months and doing diddley squat.

Are you sure it (VLH) flew to BNE last night?

Thanks BPB737 but have already been advised it is VLH and she's bound for the good old USA !

Probably end up being Obama's private baggage aircraft!

VH-NLK and VH-OBN are having their #2 enigne's swapped while one is flown to the end and then will be scrapped.

Good one Engineer Aus

Think you'll find NLK and OBN belong to two differnt companies. Makes for good reliable info! Back to the drawing board.
