Default Gemini jets june releases hints

1/400 scale:

1. Enjoy seeing these smaller planes flying for this airline while you still can. Although I personally think they look nice, I wish at least one of them had flown the colors and name of the airline they were launched by. At least while they head to the new owners we can be assured they will be around for a while.

2. When this airplane was delivered to this airline (the first new Boeing delivery for this airline in 6 years) they officially joined the six continent club.

3. This large airplane had special markings to celebrate an independence anniversary of one of their destinations. What’s interesting is the markings were placed on an airplane type which had never flown to this destination before.

4. if you look at the animal on this plane you would find it Very ironic as its ready to figHt with a part of it that he dOesn’t actually fight with. however Judging by his stance, he is ready to poUnce.

1/200 SCALE

1. This plane’s sister ship, the 992nd one of this type built, had a tragic accident demonstrating the importance of proper flaps and slat settings for take off. Unfortunately because of a take off warning horn failure, the crew didn’t catch their mistake.

2. This airplane was not popular with the airline’s Elite Members because of the 8 first class seat configurations making complimentary upgrades hard. When this past airline announced this plane was getting winglets it surprised many because of the known retirement/removed from fleet dates were approaching. While they did end up having winglets added, the entertainment onboard was not changed.

4. If it weren’t for the events in 1989 this trijet airplane would have never seen this hybrid color design. A decade later I remember passing through one of their hubs from the 1989 announcement and seeing row of red birds, sadly those days are long gone as the airline has dramatically reduced service there.

5. This airline recently announced they have started to plan for a large order to replace this plane type from their fleet, many thinking that the next generation 777 could be a possible candidate. If you're flying on this particular plane in first class, unlike most airline's fleets, you can experience two very different generation seat offerings based on which of the two main hubs you're flying to. If you like a take off experience like a 757, this quad is not for you.

Slow month compared to last but good luck trying to guess!

Quite Correct! The ship that crashed as DAL 1141 was the 992nd of the assembly line, matching the clue precisely. However, I do not think they made and episode of Mayday on that flight.

I wonder if the #1 clue is an AirTran 717 in the delivery scheme. Gemini has only done the original scheme with Elton John and the current scheme.

That's possible, there was a sample of this particular model on ebay a few months ago.

I am somewhat uninspired by this month's 1/400 GJ.

A ValuJet MD95? That is going to sit on the shelves for years.

That's because they are massively uninspiring. I would be staggerred if Gemini did a Valujet MD-95. As IndyJets has pointed out it'll more likely be a first livery AirTran 717. That's not too bad I guess but onyl four releases one of which is an EK A380 is hardly ideal.

no. GJTRS903 was N986AT ... this sample is N968AT ... different airplane ... different colorscheme.

The only 717 in this scheme so far released was GJTRS343 with Elton John's mug on the side

Do'nt they fly to Cuba? Even though it's technically in N America, many consider it to be part of Central America. Maybe that would make 6.

I repeat, #2 looks like a Delta 772LR to me. they announced SYD after getting that plane into the fleet. which put them into the 6 continent club.

also, Delta tends to acquire and keep old aircraft, so maybe that was their first new Boeing delivery in 6 years.
