@FlySWISS SWISS took delivery today of its first Airbus A321neo. The aircraft, which bears the registration HB-JPA, has been named “Stoos”. With this addition to the fleet SWISS is further underlining its commitment to resource-friendly aviation.
@lesliejosephs Amazon enjoys benefits of the cheap used aircraft market to add to its contractors’ $AMZN-dedicated fleets.
@PlanePhil5 Rossiya – Russian Airlines are to take delivery of 7 ex British Airways B747-4’s. Registrations G-BYGA, B, C, D, E, F & G are set to transfer during October and November #BAW #SDM #aviation #planespotting #AvGeek.
@TheDEWLine Today was probably a good day for the MQ-9. The USAF awarded an ID/IQ contract with a $7.4 billion ceiling to GA-ASI to deliver between 4-36 aircraft a year for the next five years for US & FMS customers. There’s a new NATO version called “Dash 21,” too.
@winglets747 Possibly…not. Air NZ -200ERs may be retired, but -300ERs expected back in service, although perhaps with shortened life and replaced by 787-10s.
