Volcanic dust injection probably needs the upgrade to the engine miracle room.

Fokker 70 P2-ANS

Flightaware and FR24 shows the aircraft has not moved from Port Moresby since October 2018. Any word why this may be?

Lets see...perhaps schedule, crewing, spare parts (in and taken), in house C checks....maybe no engines!!!!.

Outside the pay grade of those at the coal face, but at least it is in Country, not like those that had to be on sold (deposit lost???) Outside Country.

For those interested I have received a copy of the non negotiated 2015 contract variations. They are in italics and are self explanatory.

From the Age Newspaper...

" More than 20 people including pregnant women and children have reportedly been killed in tribal violence in Papua New Guinea.

Papua New Guinea's Prime Minister James Marape said those responsible for the fatal attacks could face the death penalty, warning the perpetrators “I’m coming for you”.

“Today is one of the saddest day of my life, many children and mothers innocently murdered in Munima and Karida villages of my electorate by Haguai, Liwi and OKiru gunmen,” Marape said in a statement on his Facebook page on Wednesday."

Be careful flying in and out of the highlands, I'd say tempers might be volatile.

When has there ever been a time in the past 30 years or more that there hasnít been a very high risk of getting robbed, shoot up, killed, raped and all the rest of it at any location in PNG!

Certainly barbaric acts with regards to the recent tribal fights, particularly when women and children are killed and effected. Totally disheartening.
