Re: Large Passenger Jet Arrivals

Rumours are beggining to circulate about another two BA 747's due. Not sure how true though. Hearing the same. At the time when the current three BA airframes were flown in, there had been the intention to ferry five to Kemble (incl. G-CIVH plus one other, from LHR), although the local disruption c...

Re: Worth A Visit On A Sunday?

I was thinking of paying Kemble a visit earlier today with the kids and a picnic to see if any thing was flying. I thought against because I didn't think there would be much about. Am I right or wrong thinking that? Current as of today 12 July; Just be aware that the airfield central area is offici...

Re: Visit 22/06/2020

Fantastic list as ever, thanks - great to read.

One addition will be exSAS B736. LN-RPG

It was in Hangar H2 during your visit, although by 25 June the B737 4L-TGN was in there.

I’m guessing that now the hangar work is done, LN-RPG will be around Belfast / scrap?

Does he mean 6th of July or June/July.
Initial post was for unknown time in June or July ‘17

SWAG clarify that ‘WY (Yankee) was broken up circa May 2017, with fuselage sections to Kemble 07/06/17.

The dates now tie up

Re: Kemble - unknown sections / cockpits in the scrapping area

The top two pics of the BA763 are that of G-BNWY. Scrapped at St Athan, the fuselage sections were roaded to Kemble in 06/07.17 for amalgamation with sections from the regular G-BNWS. Roaded out to unknown destinations over the following months. Above confirmed by SWAG (credit due) and some pics on ...

I could not see any reg or markings.
Looks like all reg / flag markings etc were overpainted in blue certainly by the 3rd August.

Also think the ex-Thai 777 should read N176GT

Re: LOG: Kemble 22/4/17

If it helps with the ex-Jet2 airframes, there are currently five on the field. Airframes have been moving around a lot in recent days, so I can't be too accurate on precise positions, other than their general locations. The first Jet2 airframe from the most recent batch (G-CELD), has long since been...

Looking across from the A429, the B747-400 is on the right, with the B777-200's next to it.

Which B777-200 is which.

MTIA

N175GT is on the left of the trio, with N176GT in the middle. Both frames are engineless.

Re: East Midlands 19/10/1974 Channel Airways Viscount

If it appeared stored / derelict, then it was most likely G-ATUE. I'm almost certain that it was the only Channel Airways Viscount not scrapped at Southend. It was certainly in a derelict state at EMA in August 1976, so is likely the one you're after. If it was active on that date, then ............?

Kemble Arrival - BA747 G-BNLZ

Showing up on the airfield webcam parked on D-Site is the very recent arrival from Cardiff of ex- BA 747 G-BNLZ. Notified by our good friends of S.W.A.G. as arriving for scrapping.

Fitting that this British stalwart should end her days in the UK, instead of Victorville.
