I agree. Ned Wallace was a visionary at Flying Tigers and many other airlines since. Avient's boss/owner is not, although I can think of a few words begining with W that may reflect most peoples opinion of him and Avient

Fair dinkum

You have to give credit to Mr Smith, he seems to be attempting to get his company in a good position to reap the post recession benefits

No you don't - and a lot of people won't, particularly owners of MD11's methinks...

Certainly not airbrushed, I've seen it in the flesh so to speak.

Yawn Yawn Yawn!! You should pop down to Autoglass to see if they can do anything to fill that chip you seem to be carrying. You may just crack.....

Overlength,

Don't know. But with everything in life I am sure there are two sides to a story.

Well we shall have to see what happens in the coming months, it's one thing having a nice new paint job and having the aircraft looking pretty on the ramp, but it's another thing getting the aircraft registered and in the air earning money as all the time it sits there it's not earning so lets wait and see !!

Funny how its always the same old, and the emphasis is on OLD, characters that bitch and moan about SMJ and Andrew Smith. Do us all a favour and go back to your mud huts and enjoy an early retirement. The airline industry has changed, it is no longer what it used to be. Its a dog-eat-dog world out there, and jobs are few and far between. SMJ employs a great bunch of people, and seeing an MD-11 on the ramp is a clear sign of progress. The demise of Gemini and the like dealt a devastating blow to many livelihoods. Growth, however small is growth none the less.

Rumour coming out of Nigeria this morning is that Avient have cancelled todays flight into Port Harcourt as they owe Conoil $2M and they are refusing to supply them any more fuel! Won't be long before the Nigerian equivalent of a snow plough will be parked behind the next Avient aircraft visiting Nigeria (assuming they get some other suckers to supply them with fuel on credit !). When will these fuel companies every learn ?

I'm sure World Fuels will give them credit, they let MK have 3 million dollars worth before the administrator came in!
Any more news on the MD11F, seen in MIA last week - why isn't it earning it's keep?
