That will never happen. We saw it with the Air Canada 727 they put an incorrect (non-existent) registration on. He will never acknowledge a problem or mistake appropriately, always either ignore or...

Re: Aeroclassics July releases

Andrew, why did you gloss out the main issue, which is the 727's abysmal wing join? People are upset because they're paying that much in conjunction with the other, in my opinion larger problem at...

Dragonair and Southwest for me. I knew that N reg was a Kalitta.

Re: NG Hints July

On the bright side. The VR- reg is for sure something of interest since they are finally doing Cathay (or Dragonair I guess, but it seems weird to do Dragonair first)

Hey Richard, good review as always. Something I notice in your video is the main gear hubs of your model are white and not red as they should be. Is that because you acquired an early copy?
