Seriously Dudes, my friend at European just emailed says the intense 80 year old guy back out in UK Summer working to get the CL44 flying to Africa. It is still USFAA registered N447FT per FAA website and the FAA have already advised EVERY FAA DAR ( of which we have a DAR in house at our company who has the FAA memo ) that a Ferry permit SFP is NOT to be issued. Unbelievable has to be some money grabbing venture of some sort ........ TCAS 7.1, current FAA crew, crew training for just a ferry, plus maintenance and structural/corrosion list goes on amazing stuff never ever ever ever ever going to happen with the FAA. The go fund me guy needs to save his money.

Which would be pretty unusual in a freighter.

CL44 has RR Tyne 515 while the Belfast had the smaller Tynes.
Pity the Belfast wasn't fitted with the 515.
Regards.

Bump.

New story. FT Oversize cargo is the owner of N447FT together with the Belfast at Cairns and they have a C160 flying in Africa. Seems they still have plans for both the CL-44 and Belfast....

And yes, FT stands for Flying Tiger;-)

Hehe I know. Just passing it. C-160 should have reg EY-360.

Work on the Belsow is on hold due to covid.

N447FT will be scrapped in the very near future

Might as well give it to the Bournemouth museum as there will be little of scrap value. As I have said from the start it should have stayed in the USA and been preserved in a museum.
