  1. Those numbers are a little low Kip. Pre-Covid we had about 2200 (including WJA, WEN and WSW); right now we have about 1500 active; and if the current MOA expires we’ll be down to about 1100-1200. T9
  2. 3.25 Mil... bargain price! That's down from the 4.5 Mil they wanted for this bird last year. Apparently they haven't had too many nibbles.
  3. https://www.cnn.com/2020/02/11/business/air-italy-collapse/index.html London (CNN Business) Air Italy has suspended operations after its owners decided to liquidate the company, leaving customers with flights booked after February 25 in the lurch. Italy's second biggest airline after flag carrier Alitalia said Tuesday that the decision to wind up the company was made at a meeting of its shareholders.

  8. Not sure about the USA - but in Canada there's three separate 737 type ratings: B73A (-100, -200) B73B (-300, -400, -500) B73C (-600, -700, -800, -900, MAX 8, MAX 9)
  9. Thank you for pointing this out. I also really enjoyed the documentary but the Hurricane was given short shrift.
  10. A quick online trip to Aircraft Spruce will get those puppies fixed up... or is it not that easy?... ? https://www.aircraftspruce.ca/catalog/avpages/garmin_gtx345.php
  11. Getting back to the original topic... ? The AT-6 and the A-29 are remarkably similar. I find it interesting that the USAF is buying some of each kind. A lot of overlap, no? Can you tell the difference?
  12. I listened to the transcript myself and it sounds more like "Lost number four engine". He made a couple of calls after that on downwind, too. Here's the audio:
  13. My FO snapped this in Gatwick this morning. There are a dozen or more Thomas Cook tails parked like this. I’m presuming that the tractors are strategically parked so as to prevent creditors from seizing the aircraft?... T9
