Thumbs up

I can confirm with AlexPNG. I saw it on EMTV news last night. The MRDC is a land owner company and these guys will be cashed up for years to come,I'm sure the spinoffs will be very positive for all concerned not to mention the Blues Brothers. The Swire group got out of the business years ago with Collins and Leah,that was when the Boiij group took over.

How's mad dog going,has he settled down yet ?

Exclamation

Glad we finally cleared up the bleeding obvious about Hevilift v Heavylift not being one and the same and unrelated. If you knew the area or the industry better you would know that Hevilift's main game was rotary wing and other transport in PNG and it never had any association with HeavyLift Cargo and it was always part of the Swire Group just like the former Cape York Airlines was.

Vector1Victor - what makes you an expert on HeavyLift Cargo and what have they done to you? And as for Feet on the Dash - better take em off and put em on the pedals, might help you steer in the right direction.

Where are they?

Haven't seen any Heavylift aircraft for some time in Brisbane.
There always used to be one or two Heavy B727's parked at the old terminal. I don't see them any more.
Have they gone out of business or has everything just moved up to Cairns?

I think i can answer part of this but not all.

I believe RP-C8017 left BNE for the Phillipines 3-4 weeks ago.Prior to that they were leasing Asia Pacific 722F on several occasions.Whether it has gone for maintenance although the 727 in this country has only till sep 1 due to the noise scenario-WOULD it be worth it ?.Pacific Air Express have started a BNE-POM sunday flight but not sure if that is for themeselves or Heavylift.I also have heard a rumour re FAA putting the hard word on Phillipines CAB and as the aircraft are registered in the Phillipines this may have affected them ???.The CNS aircraft have not moved for years.

Does Heavy cargo know the answer.

Skystar,

Since Geoff Leach ran away ( tried to take over the running of the company rather than fixing the planes ) the dispatch has gone back to 100% on all birds especially the 727s. He was penny wise pound foolish.
Working on grubby cessna's ( all different colours ) out in the bush now.
Things havn't changed much with GL. Not sure who you quoted in the above but they are quite right when they say "rather than fixing the planes".
Those 'grubby cessnas' and other FNQ aircraft don't really come out of the hangar any better than when they go in. I wouldn't send my aircraft there by choice...

Feetonthedash,

How come CASA allow HeavyLift Cargo to park their 727's and Belfast in Australia full time when they are not on the Aussie register and have to comply with all the rules the VH Boys have to..........it's a joke
Because that's what the Australian Constitution and the law allows.

If you don't like it, I suggest you take your feet off the dash, and write to Mr. K. Rudd, C/- Parliament House, ACT, 2600, and demand a referendum to change the Constitution.

As he is no longer going to have a referendum on changing health funding, perhaps he has time for a substitute referendum.

Why don't you do something useful, like conduct a campaign to get ride of all the silly rules that make Australian operators with VH- aircraft so uncompetitive, which seriously limits jobs for Australian.

Tootle pip!!

They probably will when one of these a/c end up at the end of a runway somewhere in a fireball.
If these operators want to get away from complying with Australian rules or oversight they should not be allowed to operate in Australian airspace.

I see the CNS 727 had a C Check recently............well they repainted the heavy lift logo...........thats the same right

CASA is a joke allowing these piles of junk to still keep flying!
Imagine one of these 727's ending up on the esplanade at CNS!

If the aircraft are not airworthy, operating unsafely or anything else illegal, report them to the appropriate authority.
In this case, it's the CAAP.

Off topic slightly, but I recall hevi lift also owned Regional Pacific in Cns operating Braz's, which they recently sold.

Have been hearing the operation might be winding up soon? Any truth to this?

I don't think the RPT runs have been operating out of CNS for the last few days.

Saying that, I did see the Braz come in to CNS on monday.

GuppyEng, if it ended up on the cns esplanade, it'd probably be turned into a backpackers bar...
