Eco Aviation announced fleet transfers into Heathrow.

Today Eco Aviation has announced that there fleet of Q400s ATR72, 757, A320s and 737s will be moved from Bari and Prague to London Heathrow for the summer. Due to low aircraft availability at Heathrow, Eco Aviation has had a hard time finding new aircraft, in case there original aircraft is under maintenance. Currently they have 4 to these players

Although it is a costly solution it will hopefully be a game changer in the long run, and even considering buying A300 passenger aircraft to make extra money.


Leased A320s for Primary Air?

Two all-white A320s have been spotted at BRI, from news around Flightradar24, the aircraft have been flown in as part of a deal between Avion Express and Primary Air.

It is believed that these two aircraft are to help with the summer rush between London Heathrow and Bari. Rumor also has it that there is a potential these aircraft could be bought fully by Primary Air.

UFO spotted at undisclosed airport

Earlier today a picture showed up in obscure media outlets about a strange and unidentified object making it’s way to a runway at a undisclosed airport.

At first glance it seems a weird blend of two well known aircraft, but in it’s current configuration baffles experts and observers alike.

A quick investigation turned out evidence that this is a prototype “Rarebus”.


Humm :thinking: that looks similar to @ukplanespotter757 330 unless it was stolen

Chaos at LHR

More news. A Ryanair 737-800 touched down in lhr for an emergency landing due to a sick passenger. However, the landing was so rough that it damaged the runway, freezing operations for many hours. Planes were stuck on the ground with nowhere to go. Lines were so long, it even stopped other planes from landing since he second runway was occupied by lined up planes. Here are some images from the horrific scene:

It only late in the evening when operations started to return to normal after spending hours trying to fix the runway and get all the planes back in the air

“It was an abomination” One BA pilot stated. “The worst day in lhr history” said one ATC. “Ill be sticking with easyjet from now on” said the sick Ryanair passenger. “At least I didn’t have to go home to my wife for an extra couple hours” said one of the ground crew who was working to repair the runway. “I just sat there and enjoyed seeing all these aircraft” said Johnny from Big Jet TV.

Truely a one of a kind situation


……and the wheel turns around again.

A new joint venture may be on the Horizon

There is pictures new today at LEJ which shows an Eco Avation A319 painted into the DB ICE livery

It’s seams like that the ICE livery is the first thing as rumours are circling about DB and Eco calling this new airline Eco Bahn which is designed to go anywhere from Germany with the Rail’s, this is good news for Train spotters as they can change between the Eco Bahn and the ICE at some stations but is also good for Avgeeks as they like to fly, this is going to streamline the experience between the DB ICE and the Eco Avation product and mashing them together to make Eco Bahn possible.

The big question remains: Will the Eco Bahn program be successful?
