Our PM in Libya

How come our beloved PM flew to Libya with their new airline? Didn't BA have any spare a/c?

This forum is NOT a UK-only forum my friend.
Your Prime Minister is certainly not mine...

And whilst he might be my Prime Minister, or the Prime Minister of my beloved country, he himself is not beloved to me

I may be a British citizen, but I do not wish to claim any sort of ownership of that man or his tawdry revolution.

I want my country back.

Tony Blair

Tony Blair flew from Heathrow to Tripoli on his usual chartered BA 777, he will be using the 777 for his five day tour of Africa. However on arrival in Tripoli he flew courtesy of the Libyan government from Tripoli to Sirte, which is close on 280 miles east of Tripoli for the meeting with Colonel Gaddafi, the BA 777 is not approved for operations into Sirte Airport.

Any way of finding out which a/c are based where?

Hey everyone. I've never posted on this particular thread before so not sure if this inquiry is where it should be.

But nevermind, here goes! The title is pretty self explanitory. Is there any way, any internet programs or anything, of finding out which aircraft from a certain airline are currently based at each of their base airports.

For example, I want to find out where each of the bmibaby 733's are based right now. There is a specific reason for this but I won't bore you by going into it. I know that G-TOYA and G-BYZJ are currently based at MAN but only through looking at the airports AMOSS system. And airlines tend to change the based aircraft around on a regular basis.

So, is there any way I can find out where the other WW 733's are based right now and also find out which 733's will be at MAN in a few weeks time, assuming they change over regularly.

This request isn't specifically for bmibaby, just an example. Any input would be greatful.

Ryanair Fleet Rotation and Bases etc

Hi there,

This is purely out of interest, and just something that I was thinking about. Does anyone have any idea how Ryanair base their aircraft, and rotate them?

eg. Do aircraft arrive from Boeing to a particular base, and remain there until heavy maintenance or something then get swapped around a bit?

Also, do Ryanair fly any W-patterns?

eg. Does each aircraft simply fly to/from its base ie. STN-DUB-STN-PIK-STN...... all day, or could it be more like STN-DUB-PIK-DUB-STN....?

Any replies would be appreciated!

Tom Man-alc

Anyone any idea what the aircraft type will be down to operate during october on tuesday mornings as TOM3171 MAN-ALC departing 0750?
The flight schedule book for august says a 763, but im guessing it could be opping on a 752 as it gets to the end of summer? I actually do hope its the 763, not flew on one of them short haul for nearly 10 years.

Any info or help appreciated.
