His biggest complaint, he lost hi...

Re: What's up with the Moderators on this site???

I agree with you, and feel out of respect alone - after all, if I'm going to take the time, research my topic, links, photos, sources etc., before I post - the least they can do is (as pprune does) leave a 'Moved' note and link.

Re: Boomerang 203

No relation to the HSBC airplanes. Interesting story with this aircraft, it was bought brand new in 2007 by Colonial Bank of Montgomery Alabama - which is one of the many banks that failed in the US - the Feds took over the bank, closed it down - and sold off the assets, including N605CB their prize...

Frankly I've no idea how they turn a profit, I can only guess their rent must be subsidized somewhat. The local staff at YKZ seem t...

I also recall hearing, that the 3 original Millardair Bays, were actually moved...
