Aircraft Update for 04-Apr-2016


Updated: 1650 EDT - 04-Apr-2016





411 - ATR-72-202  HB-ALL Zimex Aviation Ltd., Glattbrugg


Flew Sønderborg - East Midlands 04-Apr-2016 for painting, ex F-WTBC. At the moment the aircraft does not yet appear on the public version of the Swiss register.


570 - ATR-72-212A (500) OY-YAN Nordic Aviation Capital, Billund

Flew Billund - Reus - Las Palmas 02-Apr-2016 on delivery to Canary Fly. This would appear that the previously reported delivery flight of 22-Mar-2016 did not actually occur.


1015 - ATR-42-600 PK-TNJ PT Trans Nusa Aviation, Kupang

Struck by Batik Air Boeing 737-800 PK-LBS while under tow at Jakarta-Halim 04-Apr-2016. The Boeing was attempting to reject the take-off before striking the ATR-42 which had not cleared the runway. The ATR suffered extensive damage, losing most of its tail and port wing. The damage to the wing also resulted in a fire due to leaking fuel.

Flew Belo Horizonte - Confins - Recife - Ilha do Sal - Arrecife - Lisbon 01/01-Apr-2016 on delivery to White/TAP Express where it will be CS-DJE.






UE-391 - Beech 1900D N973EA Icecap LLC Trustee, Anchorage

Registered to Dynamic Avlease Inc., Bridgewater, VA 01-Apr-2016; I expect this was a trade in from Ravn Alaska to Dynamic Avlease for DHC-8-106 N49FE (see blog entry for 02-Apr-2016). The latter departed Bridgewater for the Premier Aviation facility in Rome, NY on 01-Apr-2016.  The 1900 is seen below on approach to Anchorage in 2013, courtesy of Dietmar Schreiber.
