The only -300 that toll operate are the ATR42-300.
Nah, sorry, you're wrong.

You guys are referring to the kiwi company airwork who operate the 737s.
Yep, painted in TOLL livery.

No, they are now operating an all white B734 too...
Correct. Was on "N" registration in AKL a few month ago. Seen in BNE recently but unable to determine if it was NZ rego'd or still on the "N" rego.

Don't forget the 734 (Airworks) under Alliance livery, but NZ rego (JTL?), operating PER-KTA.

The TTMRA is a bit one-sided, it seems.

Really? Is that why Jetstar has 10 aircraft flying domestically in NZ on VH regos...

Could you please tell me how I'm wrong? Massive difference between the company and a sub contractor.

Bought for $6.15M

Claimed value at $13M

Sold for $5M

By the mortgagee.

Sounds somewhat familiar.

I just wonder who the man in the white polo top was. Or the man in blue.

Resurrecting an older thread. I'm curious about HL because apparently they have bought 2 of DHLAirways (Astar Air Cargo) DC8-73's, and it appears they are going to run them out of Brisbane to Navaru, Singapore, and Port Moresby. Any current light someone might shed on this would be appreciated!

On that website I see the Belfast for sale at a cool $1.1 million. That at least would cover initial crew training and ferry. Or maybe he could attract Nigerian money. THAT would be poetic justice......

I better go get a photo of it then. It certainly has sat idle for a long while.
I was taught SCPL Nav by a bloke called Mcphail who said he flew them in their day. I saw it flying a few times out of Cairns, a wonderful old girl. Not too sure how many are left in the world now, a real museum piece.

There were only 10 built with 2 remaining. There’s the one in Cairns and the other with the RAF.

All 10 Belfasts were named:

Samson - RAF Serial XR362 (used registration G-ASKE for overseas test flight), sold as G-BEPE then scrapped

Goliath - RAF Serial XR363, sold as G-OHCA then scrapped

Pallas - RAF Serial XR364, sold as scrap to Rolls-Royce who recovered the Tyne engines

Hector - RAF Serial XR365, sold as G-HLFT then as 9L-LDQ operating with HeavyLift Cargo Airlines, now RP-C8020

Atlas - RAF Serial XR366, sold to RR for engines

Heracles - RAF Serial XR367 - sold as G-BFYU then scrapped

Theseus - RAF Serial XR368, sold as G-BEPS then in storage at Southend

Airport - Began being broken up 22/Oct/2008

Spartacus - RAF Serial XR369, sold as G-BEPL then scrapped

Ajax - RAF Serial XR370, sold to RR for engines

Enceladus - RAF Serial XR371, preserved as an exhibit at RAF Museum Cosford

The production list is here: Short Belfast production list

Well I guess that answers my question then. Thanks for the information, certainly a rare aircraft.

I don't know if it's indicative of a clean-up by the Cairns airport authority but I am advised by a friend in Cairns that the longtime resident C-47 VH-SPY has had its wings removed (properly) and that the aircraft will be transported to a suburb of Cairns for purposes unknown.

Of more concern is his report that non-specified equipment is being assembled around the Belfast. I get the impression that this equipment is not maintenance related.

That will be a real shame if it is true. I guess that the owners of the airport are liquidating the assets to recover the costs associated with parking. Just a guess though.
Pity, but I guess that is where we are at in this day and age, not much room for sentiment, costs too much it seems.
I wonder what anyone would do with a C-47 fuselage?

Heavylift P/L

I see on Aussie ASIC Heavylift Cargo Airlines is back up and running down under but they say owned out of the States. Some big birds here painted up with full HEAVYLIFT billboard logos carrying "N" numbers, others are out on lease with white tails no idea where they are headed.

Really 4-Holer, you don't know?

Better peer in to the magic looking glass and ask NL, then.
