It should be possible to put a team together that can negotiate a one-off ferry flight out of the UK. Most important is that such a team is composed of credible individuals with a solid reputation in...

Nearly six years since it last landed in Cairns in the beginning of January 2009. Would be nice to see it move again. Who owns it?

Belfast

The Belfast is still parked near the fire station in Cairns. Seems to be in reasonable shape. Engines ran a few weeks ago. Not dead yet..!

Share price

It is almost as if the prime objective is to drive the share price down. Surely QF must be getting very very attractive to asset strippers! That is where the real danger is in my opinion.

There always used to be one or two Heavy B727's parked at the old terminal. I don't see them any more.

You would wonder how "marginally" is actually defined.

Are they now also going to take away the instrument ratings of pilots who marginally passed their last MECIR as well?

VB to buy Rex

It would make a lot of sense for VB to acquire Rex, and run all E-jets and turboprops under the Rex AOC. Fewer people would leave and there would be a more interesting career path for the Rex crews....
