I remembered in the 90s TG used 737-400 for the BKK-BKI route?

If not mistaken early 90s Tg used A310 to BKI

Gorgeous! Today's daily express also reported of her brief stop at BKI, with those petronas oil drums in front of her as well as the pilots and ground handlers.

 

Nice ad for Aeropod behind Jahur haha.

 

What happened to the 02 equipment? No wonder 20 is in use, that got me puzzled as the wind was predominantly WNW or westerly these days.

Awesome shot!  If only they switch on the flood lights on the left instead of the right side one. :(

Does the bird run on different fuel or was it Petronas making full use of photo op with those green drums peppered about the place ?  :)

This dc-3 still runs on old school piston powered turbine engines and kept most of its performance antique lik unlike other dc-3 which have been modified to turboprop also this breitling bird runs on avgas instead of jetfuel or kerosene they reserved 20gas barrels months before.

I wonder how long it took to refuel? old school manual pumping!

 

True, the last time a DC-3 that came doing some geo survey was modified to a turboprop. Any videos? Would be fab to listen how she sounds like...

Took them nearly 2 hours to do the turnaround and servicing. Plane is also mostly unpressurized cabin so they can freely open windows if they cruise slow. Meanwhile I recall the other geo DC-3 frequently visits SDK and BTU but i never got the chance to spot it, that plane had a more standard turboprop engine sound. This breitling dc-3 sounded right out from the Pearl Harbor movie that engine shut down sounded so freaking quick. :diablo:

TG never acquired A310, if I remembered correctly.

 

Were you referring to the A300B4-200 and A300B4-600R which were owned by TG?

Smells like diesel instead of kerosene. :P

TG did operate A310 in past. They even use it for SEA-YYZ route.
