Some years ago at Leeds Bradford I overheard an exchange between ATC and the crew of a Spanair A320. The latter had requested a ready message, even though the aircraft still had forward steps...

Interesting old thread. I flew on one of the Rombac 1-11s in 1987. It was YU-ANS, on a damp lease (along with several sister ships) to Adria Airways from Tarom. I went to Ljubljana and back from...

Thanks for the info. I confess I was unsure which AirTanker aircraft are/were flying for whom.

I expect AirTanker will be planning to have their leased A330s returned to Brize Norton as soon as possible. Not sure what will become of those aircraft in the immediate future; back to the...

I don't know chevron. I believe LBA is still short-staffed (I seem to talk to the same voices every time I'm on duty) so there may be reluctance to divert an operational ATCO or WM from the tower to...

F27 PH-ARO became, I think, G-BFDS when it was transferred to the UK register. I remember seeing it at LBA for the first time in early 1978. It still wore the Linair livery of dark blue and white...

Southwest Airlines briefly operated the 727-200 during the 1970s. Were these crewed completely by the leasing airline (Braniff ?) or just piloted by SWA pilots converted from the 737 ? If the latter,...

Today, I bought some Remaldi Harrison aviator sunspecs for the princely sum of eight quid. It turns out they were made by an optical firm just half a mile from here. If they protect my eyes and don't...

I wonder if Jet2 have the option to alter the A330 leases to 'dry' and train their own pilots to crew them rather than using the AirTanker pilots, given the length of the leases ?

Not BOAC but a British airline. I heard a tale not long ago of a SFO who was up for his first command and whose conduct is reminiscent of these Atlantic Barons. His training captain was, by and...

rog747, the Sunwing contract is damp lease. They provide the pilots as well but the cabin crew are TUI's own. At least that's what we had at LBA last summer.

One of these Olympus Airbuses is currently parked at Manchester. I didn't see it move yesterday or this morning. TUI have also been using a Privilege Style 767 and a French XL A330.

The Airmed/Clement Clarke microphone is a relative youngster but still from a previous generation of avionics. It should still work in any modern aircraft where you'd be likely to see ultra-expensive...

I've found out that the microphone in the second picture is a David Clark model, made in 1979. My wild guess is that the other one is a later version made by Clement Clarke themselves. Maybe a...
