Remarks: New to the database, VX-31 Dust Devils Air Test and Evaluation Squadron Three-One, based at China Lake. Thanks to the crew for the conversation, and for showing up at the 2012 Rhode Island Airshow!
Remarks: Still in AirOne Colors, Alitalia 61 Romeo Heavy is ready for the daily hop to Rome. Here you can see how designers made the A330 a difficult P2F aircraft due to the downward-sloping cabin when the aircraft is on the ground. Regardless, it still is a sleek design.
Remarks: SATA 201 Heavy from Lisbon moves down November from 4R. Nice to see Connecticut-made PW4000s under this bird, SATA also has CF6-powered 310s as well. It is pretty rare to have pax A310s these days, so we're lucky to have SATA here in Boston, even if not daily.
Remarks: Air France 338 Heavy from Paris taxis in on November after landing 4R. Glad I caught "Bravo," because last year I caught Alpha and she has since been scrapped at Kemble, would not be surprised if this classy Queen meets the same fate soon.
