Probably the worst looking aircraft in aviation of all time... Anyone seen worse?

Due into OOL around 8. I am guessing they have a pretty full plane of crew to do the wet lease so can do the ferry in one hit and then they are good to go, pretty appealing job for those not wanting to go through a northern hemisphere’s winter!

I actually saw a set of flair crew in the INT terminal at BNE on Wed.

Cabin or technical? Bit surprised they were travelling in uniform if deadheading. I wonder how many tech and cabin crew they need for the two aircraft at OOL?

Yes Mark, I thought that also after they kept going from HNL with just the fuel stop. They'd probably have enough tech crew to do each of the three legs and then some over to swap crew halfway through those legs if needed.

The total flying time from YYC will be over 17.5 hours by the time they reach OOL.

OOL flights kicked off yesterday, with a repositioned Bona plane VH-UIK rather than the wet leased plane
