Re: NG Models for November 2020

I will be going for the three N-reg aircraft, and maybe either a Westjet or the Iberia. Great to see more Delta aircraft. Fun fact about N512DN: this is Delta's first A350 with the revised wing twist...

Re: NG Model - 1:400 November 2020 "Hints"

Glad to see a couple registrations that have to be a DL 737 and DL A350.

Very excited to see that the PW engines are ready for A330s with the 9M-XXX registrations. I imagine CF6-80E engines can't...

Re: Gemini 400 October Releases

Re: NG Models: New releases for SEP 2020

For those curious about Delta's 2 sets of A330-300s, the first are the A330-323 aircraft which were originally delivered to Northwest from 2003-2007, registrations N801NW-821NW. These aircraft have...

Re: Wilbourne’s Dream: Air Wisconsin 1965-1992

Very interesting writeup Richard. Northeast Wisconsin has really punched above its weight with Air Wisconsin, North Central (as Wisconsin Central), and Midwest all starting in the area.

Re: NG Model - 1:400 September 2020 Release "Hints

Great question! It was the final 757 ever built (line number 1050), and will very likely be one of the last flying in passenger service. Was originally delivered to Shanghai airlines, then bought by...
