Thanks, James

Haven't seen a picture of 8IF in full paint or her name as yet.

Greg, from another site, the name is "Maroochydore Beach" and a link to a photo of 8IF:

I needed a magnifying glass to confirm the name!

Thanks again James,

I think a telescope is more appropriate.

On the IFE date above it should arrive in BNE on or around 06/05/24 (Based on prev).

Greg, of the two MAX's so far sent to MLB for IFE work, 8IB took 12 days, excluding the arrival and departure days and 8ID took 6 days. I presume that they both had the same work done. We'll see if a week is going to be the normal installation time from here on in.
