These old birds may never fly again. Their value as is where is would be very little because so many are on the market. A good Chieftain is worth more than the best one and two Chieftains worth more than the entire fleet.

True , their price has gone rock bottom with so many on the market. Also some of these Aircraft may have already left aussie shores to collect dust in a cheaper location till sold off.

Believe it was VH-OZD that went to Jakarta for a "c" check. Some mention of a lap joint being due, but bit third/fourth hand info there.

VH-OZX probably still in PER, another one was there as well doing well as a christmas tree giving parts to the others.

Haven't heard about the fourth.

BTW Is Hevilift still operating or did they go under as well?

3 are in Per and OZD in Jakarta as previous poster advised for C check. OBN in Per with only one engine and one of the others has no hours left on the undercarriage. Cant see any of them going anywhere in the near future. Heavylift operated a flight out of BNE this morning.

A very famous Aussie once said...... "You only get one Alan Bond in your lifetime, and I've had mine".

Maybe Stoddard chuckled a similiar line.

Putting on the serious hat though, met and dealt with some great guys/girls at OJ, hope it works out for you all.

Im sorry, the staff have not been shafted from day one. If you ask me, NL is the one that got shafted. He bought this business with incompetent management that I believe did not have his interests at heart. Day after day he kept on hitting brick walls, but he still soldiered on regardless. No thanks to those English Gits thats for sure. Im sure they are happy now.

To suggest that the owner of the company (it was only 4 X 737-200 FGS) got shafted by his managers simply indicates that the boss failed to manage.

Business 101......the buck stops at the top!!!

Travel plans in disarray as OzJet grounded
20th May 2009, 16:45 WST

Passengers at Perth Airport are furious after their travel plans were thrown into disarray today.
The effective grounding of OzJetís operations in Perth over unpaid airport charges has affected thousands of Bali holiday makers.

The grounding of the airline, which operates to Derby and twice weekly Bali charters for IndoJet, is due to unpaid airport charges.

Perth Airport chief executive Brad Geatches told thewest.com.au that it would not process its passengers because the airport was owed more than $200,000 in back payments.

Perth Airport staff today helped ground-handling agents who were left to tell about 70 passengers their travel plans were in limbo.

Passengers were furious that there was no representative from IndoJet in attendance and that they had not been phoned with the news.

Late today Indojetís website was still accepting bookings for flights on OzJet aircraft.

Devastated passenger Chelsea Dyer said it was very unfair and extremely unprofessional behaviour.

PERTH

your friend NL brings to mind the thought of little kids and train sets.

Norfolk started the thought, ........todays "The West" Bali article reinforced it.

Reported on the Television news tonight. Perth Airport owed several hundred thousand dollars. Ozjet blaming the whole breakdown of the business on CASA's failure to extend their AOC for their Cargo operations.
