Air Bourbon A-340

Post by YYZ727 » 06 Dec 2004, 08:50

Air Bourbon A-340 F-OITN appeared through the fog on saturdaymorning dec. 5th at the SN-technics-apron. Does anybody know how long it's going to stay in Brussels and what the next assignment will be for this beautifull bird ?

Air Bourbon being bankrupt, it could stay here for some time. The time to find a new operator for that bird...

I've just read on a french website that AirBouron has an unpaid invoice with Sabena Flight academy...

So I guess SFA is in right to request the grounding of that Airbus until they are paid.

Hello everybody, this is my first message on Luchtzak Aviation ;)

According to ATDB, F-OITN should be transfered to Eurofly. It would be the first italian A340 !

I was sad to see F-OITN in the chilly rain this morning. Its nr 4 engine was scrapped.

She flew all around the world in the most exotic destinations (LAX, KIX, NRT, PPT, RUN,...) and ends up so saddly... :(

So sadly??

This airplane will fly in a couple of weeks. Now they will set the airplane in a good fly condition.

Hi FB,

Where did you see F-OITN this morning? Seeing F-OITN was the main purpose of my BRU-visit a week ago, and even after walking to Aviapartner behind SN Technics, I didn't get to see the aircraft...
