BELOW IS THE TEXT OF SAID "KNOWER" OF THE TAIL.......TO ME THE 'CLUELESS' WITHOUT A TAIL..........(eshhhhhhh)...
NOW GET AFTER IT...............


I liked your tail livery game. Here's one for you. Aircraft was photographed in Ft Lauderdale in 1993. This is a toughie, as the airline only lasted 18 months before going out of businessAirline started up in 1993, and went bust in July 1994. In between, there was a period of about two months when it suspended operations while it restructured.

It operated as a discount carrier between JFK in New York and southern destinations .... mainly Ft. Lauderdale, Miami, Orlando and oddly enough (to me, anyway) Mobile, AL.
The reason they folded: wiped out by bigger competitors who had much deeper pockets and who undercut them into oblivion (they out-discounted the discount airline). The company had three
(leased) 727s.

Edwin said...

Fun game! :)

Answer: UltrAir

getjets said...

EDWIN.............HOW DID YA GET IT?????........GOTTA KNOW............
EDWIN.......YOU A SMART COOKIE...........!!!!!

OK....I HAVE TO ASK.......WERE YOU ABLE TO SEE THE TEXT ON THE TAIL....OR CLEARLY READ TAIL OR REGISTRATION #??????

Edwin said...

Spent a good 30-45 minutes on this one, so it was quite tough. First 15 minutes was spent just browsing the web and try to find some general information, which didn't result in anything, so I figured I'd just search the reg and let someone else take it. Thing is I didn't read the reg correctly, I read N253PA as opposed to N353PA so that didn't turn out to anything other than a PA38.

After some more research I came across a long list of airlines and this one fit the description quite good, did a search on the airline and matched the livery and the rest of the reg and voila! :)

Craig R said...

Edwin, you definitely get a gold star for that one. UltrAir is correct :-)

Getjets - look in your email for an image of the entire plane, and a New York Times story of the airline folding up shop.

Guess I have to make the next one a bit tougher.

getjets said...

Edwin.........I did the exact same thing with the reg #.......oh I was so frustrated............but was having the time of my life!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I bet I 'googled' at least 75 sites......HOPING........TO GET A HIT...............THEN ~G~ TOOK OVER.............and with a little help..we had it...........!!!!
Sh!t that was fun.........!!!!...

Thank you again Edwin..........!!!

Damn it was a good day........Mr Ritchie..................SO FUNNY...............YA GOT ANOTHER MYSTERY..............??

BRING IT ON..............LOL....

getjets said...

RITCHIE...............THIS WAS SO MUCH FUN...............!!!!

I THINK I'LL KEEP YOU ON THE PAYROLL....................

I WOULD JUST LIKE TO KNOW....HOW DID YOU COME ACCROSS THIS TAIL............:))))???????...

PERHAPS WASN'T THE TAIL ......OH NEVER MIND...............LOL

Dave W said...

Hey Jules!

Ya made it easy leaving the reg No. in, you know what to do next time!!

Giulia, your profile pic is priceless! I thought I had a big grin when I sat in that sim but yours takes the biscuit!!!

Jules, I saw an ad for Virgin (that's the airline before you get excited Ritchie!) the other day that just made me think of you and TWA, they have a great red livery and a sense of fun that you would just imagine TWA exhibiting if they were around today, here's the link:

Virgin Atlantic

Apologies if you have already seen it..

Guess what! Lions v Saints is being shown on the TV over here (kick off 1am!!) Maybe I should invite Foggy over and get the popcorn and dogs in!
I may have to set the alarm! Go Saints....! :)

All the best and have a great weekend!

Dave from the UK

Bas said...

Noooooo, toooo late! :P While I was asleep you folks cracked the code! lol!

Bas

Foggy said...

Name that "tail"...?

We could have some fun with that...

...or are we talking the vertical stabilising component of an aircraft empennage? Just checking... dis-ambiguation, and all that ;)

N353PA - B727-225 - "PA" suffix would indicate ex-PanAm aircraft? Used on Euro domestic routes to/from Berlin-Tempelhof(?) in the U.S. Sector prior to German reunification.

getjets said...

DAVE...........The tail pic was Not easy............!!!!
ok for me............

I googled so many possible match sights...............

yes, I could only see part of the reg.#...and I used the small windshield....I have for magnifying.......glasss.........course, the actual name of the airline was right there on the tail as well...........COULD NOT MAKE IT OUT.........


LOOKING UP THE REG# IS THE FIRST THING TO TRY.......
so then, I passed the pic to ~g~....and """WA LA....."""
Got it.........she got it and with a little help.......
After, when I put it on blog...just to see who.............could also....find the name.......

Good job, Edwin. Maybe next time, Jules can email you with serious orders to figure out the name of the airline! She scared me with her emails! LOL!!! I had to stop, drop, and roll...around in google with her.

I swear, she had tunnel vision...the heck with work! :) :) :)

Dave from the UK

Foggy said...

Giulia, How did I know that you would know that I would, etc...! Now that would be telling:)... Please, not the chalk brush! Could I not just have another "Look"... please?

Dave, Virgin Atlantic used that ad year before last? Those heels can't do the wing skins much good!

Foggy said...

"YES FOGGY........it's the VERTICAL STABILISING COMPONENT AIRCRAFT APENDAGE THINGIE.................:))))))"

^J^ Good to see you haven't lost the "Engineer's Tech Terminology Speak" ;))

Bas said...

LOL Dave! Good link, the end of the commercial 'Is that Linda?' 'Noooo, she's in Miami' lol! Weird but fun!

If anyone finds him or herself flying a Virgin Atlantic A340 with holes in the left wing...you know where they're from!

Giulia said...

Happy Sunday, everyone!

Jules? Got your voice back yet?

Foggy...ahem...I'd give you the "Look" but apparently, I need the right shoes.

:)

Foggy said...

Giulia - ;))

Craig R said...

Saints really did play well yesterday, didn't they? Bring on the big kitty!

Since the UltrAir tail went over so well, I shoudl see about finding another obscure one. And this time, either deleted the registration (d'oh!) or use Photoshop to replace with an incorrect registration (bwahahahahahahahahaha!!!!).

Would this need to be a US airline, Getjets, or should we expand the scope and go global?

getjets said...

KTCB = """Kicked their collective bitz!!""
