You may select either a specific database field (airline, aircraft, etc.), or choose to match your keyword to all database fields.

Note: Air Canada used their 2 A340-500s on the nonstop Toronto – Hong Kong route (as well as to other destinations) before the 77L took over. Both of their -500s were leased to TAM and operated with them for a few years before being stored in...
Note: A type Air China no longer operate. B-2497 is now with El Al as 4X-EAL. The 767 doesn't look as beautiful as other widebody aircraft (and I also think the -200 looks better), but with a fantastic scheme like Air China’s, does end up...
Note: This was before the merger with Continental, and between 2006 & 2007 we did get UA 777s on the Tokyo service replacing the 747s. I do miss this United scheme although I think it's one of those schemes where it only looks attractive in...
Note: I much prefer their old scheme as I think cheatlines look really good, especially on 747 classics. N521UP begin its life with Singapore Airlines in '81 as a -212B. It then flew for Garuda before being acquired by UPS and converted to a...
Note: TF-AMI was originally a Singapore Airlines 744 (9V-SMO). It was acquired by Air Atlanta Icelandic in 2005 & then converted to a freighter in 2006 by Israel Aerosapce Industries (IAI). It has been leased to Saudi Cargo and currently...
Note: The 747 classic will always be the best looking out of all the 747 variants for me. Everything about them looks awesome, from the old PW JT9D engines to the earlier models that carried the wingtip-mounted HF antennas. The classics...
