    There's considerable trade in Irish sheep to North Africa and Singapore for ritual sacrifice. Ironically, given their ultimate fate, one of the key reasons that air transport is preferred is because of the low fatality rate, something like 0.01%

    120 of those lambs arrived dead this morning

    Beautiful !

    Is that a -8 ?


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 3,419 ✭✭✭cowboyBuilder


    Too late now, but in August when there is usually an American Football match in Dublin, the team come in on a United 747 ...

    So keep eyes peeled next August :)

    From 2 years back ..

    They're was a no show for any 747's at the College game a couple of weeks ago (to my knowledge). So I won't be getting too excited about one appearing for the the next one :(

    Yup. This year it was an EI A330 and a Delta B767.


    For cowboybuilder; that private B747 is ondeed an -8i. (Does it get the 'i' if it is non-commercial?)
    Notice the raked wingtip, the chevrons on the back of the engines cowlings and the upper deck going back halfway.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 3,419 ✭✭✭cowboyBuilder


    Not sure of the i with non commercial , afaik the Lufthansa 747-8 have the i too - some at least.

    It's a beauty of a plane.

    I wish BA and other airlines would get some


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,263 ✭✭✭robyntmorton


    If I remember correctly, when the 747-8 was introduced, the passenger version was dubbed the "Boeing 747-800 Intercontinental", which would give you the -800i.

    Another photo here of the Russiya plane in the far background this morning.

    I noticed that there are quite a few planes parked at the moment at DUB, also a few Ryanair planes not being used today. Summer season's over I guess?

    Not all aircraft are required all day, every day. The parking area in the background of your image is in effect overflow parking, given that at nights all stands at the terminal are occupied. In terms of fees charged, it may also cheaper for the airlines to park aircraft there rather than at a boarding gate.

    Agree......is it a wrap or actual intricate painting? Looks incredible no matter

    'Tis a sign of the times wondering when the next 747 will be in. It won't be long before we will be wondering about the next 757 and 767.

    But not as bad as when the Viscounts, Vangaurds, Heralds, F27's, Caravelles, BAC1-11's, Tridents, B707's, B727's, DC-9's, late night IL-18's and the eclectic mix of Aer Turas machines all moved on. Although we will feel the same about the 747 in another 20 years!

    Oh well......*sigh*

    Maintenance company waiting on past payments before they order, fix and release the aircraft, until then she's not being released

    EI-XLC tech engine issues, supposedly getting the parts in today from the B742 Kalita Airways currently on the ground and then EI-XLC is supposedly doing a 3 engined ferry flight to SNN on Friday for the maintenance, the other Rossiya B744 in the hangar is still getting painted, can't remember the registration
