@ArtifactsHub Sixty-five years after it crash-landed on a beach in Wales, an American P-38 fighter plane has emerged from the surf and sand where it lay buried.
@JohnLStrickland 5/ Without at least some 747’s coming back, BA doesnt have enough other widebodies to ramp up programme significantly, 787’s / A350’s & some 777’s are moderately busy even now on the mainly cargo programme but with little TransAtlantic activity compared to a typical summer.
@SpaethFlies Mid-June seems to mark the comeback of commercial aviation. For the first time since late March, there are more active than stored airlines, according to @cirium #avgeek.
@winglets747 Air cargo rates: demand naturally decreasing from peaks but price comparisons are skewed. Cargo is billed on weight, yet recent demand has been for lightweight masks etc. Rates partially increased since a pallet of masks wouldn’t generate as much revenue as a pallet of iPads.
@worldexplorerh1 Europes flights starting to take off but the UK and Ireland are still stalled. Fingers crossed for a good R number so that we can start travelling again.
