Re: Did you know ???

Was for a movie only to fool the noobs (besides us all here) , but still would have looked nice I think

The background has also something of interest, doesnt it ?

Don't know if this has already been posted, but the same kind of thing happened on the other side of the iron curtain.

I don't think it was done to fool anyone Speedbird it's probably because nobody doing the film could be bothered to do it properly...

Re: Did you know ???

Glad to have stumbled upon this thread!

Austrian Airlines (OS) has to battle shortages in A/C and more importantly pilots. To target this, they wet-leased a colourful bunch of A/C:

- CRJ-900 of Nordica (op. by Adria), registrered ES-ACC:


- B737-800 of SunExpress Germany, registered D-ASXD:


- A320-212 of Condor, registrered D-AICH:


Those birdies should fly for OS for the summer season - and STILL the Austrian carrier had to cancel 300 flights throughout July and August.

Was meant less serious than it sounded....pretty obvious that the eastern bloc didnt have any caravelles or the west any Tupolevs to make the "real" Thing in their films.

But havent you come across that also often.....a plane takes off in a film and a complete different one touches down. You just shake your head about that inaccuracy..Or they Claim it to be a Jumbo and then it is a 737 only....I always laugh about that. But possibly when it comes to say Tanks, they can tell me everything as this is not my area of knowledge

Loads of them and they're usually crap,the new Dunkirk film should be interesting to see how they manage to ruin it,especially what they do about using WWII destroyers...

Re: Did you know ???

German users will surely know this one:

From 31/10/2016 to 01/03/1991, East German (GDR) flag carrier Interflug leased a DHC-8-100 from Austrian carrier Tyrolean Airways. The plane was painted plain white and wore Interflug's logo on the tail - and flew with Austrian registry (OE-LLI).


(Picture source: http://www.interflug.biz )

After Interflug ceased operations, it returned to Tyrolean. After having served in the fleets of many carriers, it is now flying for Solomon Airlines (registered P2-MCQ) since 02/12/2009.

There is even a Herpa model of the plane wearing "Interflug White": No. 523806 in 1:500.

You say it Vince, we both agree 100% on that
