Any-one know the latest on these ops??? With cargo being slow I guess they are not looking for crews. I am looking for either DC8 or DC9 work but with all the poor Astar blokes good luck. And is Murray-National flying a Herc?

I know things are bad and I wish everyone the best in these really trying times. If I hear of anything I will post. There is still some work overseas but really crappy places like Africa/Middle East.

Cheers.

Obviously YOU know nothing about the Middle East/Africa.

Everybody has an opinion that everyone may or may not agree with. Why flame?

We're still chugging along. There is a DC-8 class coming up, but they've already hired for it. The Herc is hired help from elsewhere. All of our flying right now is based in the Middle East. Trying times...

I've heard a couple mechanics interviewing to go over there for you guys. I also heard a DC-10 was coming to the fleet, is that true?

It's made it past the idea concept once, but when it shows up on the ramp it will be true. Beyond that I can't speculate.

[FONT=&quot]The word on the street is IFL pulled a Falcon out of MFE and now has some scheduled runs out of SDF. The crews have a month on month off schedule. I also heard they bought three Falcons from [/FONT][FONT=&quot]Tricoastal [/FONT][FONT=&quot]and are trying to get one running correctly. [/FONT]

What do they plan on doing with that Falcon and is there going to be any hiring because of the growth?

I understand they have all of thier Falcons on scheduled runs for UPS. The USA Jet Falcon did three trips in the last 5 days.

They had a posting on climb to 350 a couple of months ago for falcon drivers out of SDF. Don’t know much more, no longer an Eifel driver.
