Diogo,

I don't have time to check all your L-100's, but I have the Transafrik list right in front of me.  4385 is now 5X-TUE, 4472 was written off at Lokichoggio, Kenya in 2006, 4299 is 5X-TUD, 4383 is 5X-TUF and 4301 is 5X-TUA.

The last 7 of the msn's on your list are actually military C-130's.

Hello Bob,

Thanks a lot for your list! When you say Saudia is Saudi Arabian Airlines or Saudi AF? And do you know if Air Contractors have one operating in europe (Safair)?

Diogo,

Transafrik wet leased 3 (I think) Hercs to National Airlines, but that was a few years ago.

National no longer operates Herks. As Don said they were wet leased from Transafrik

The ones that say Saudia are operated by Saudi Arabian Airlines.

Hello,

Could some one help me to confirm the current Lynden Air Cargo fleet?

4606   N401LC

4698   N402LC 

4590   N403LC

4763   N404LC (WFU)                                                      Why WFU?

5025   N405LC (Leased to Coulson Air Tanker)

4676   N406LC (Temp P2-LAC)

5225   N407LC (Temp P4-LAE)                                        Why using P4 registration?

4600   N408LC (Temp P4-LAS)                                        Why using P4 registration?

 

If someone can answer the questions that would be perfect!

Any help will be more than welcome!

Regards,

Diogo

I beleive 404 is parked.  If I recall correctly, it needed both inner and outer wings and at the time, they were a little slow, so it got parked at Kingman initially - no idea where it is now.

As for the P4 registration, I heard they pulled out of P2 (Papau New Guinea) and reregistered in Aruba??

Rest as listed, why one is still P2, ??

Hi,

It seems that N406LC (ex: P2-LAC) is now P4-LAC.

That's right, at least the site is now closed as well..

Lynden lease to Coulson fire fighters 402LC, 405LC

Stored Kingman 404LC

P4 is a lot like Panama for ships, a flag of convenience.

Hi,

I can see in several sources in the internet that ZS-JIZ is now N409LC. Was it sold from Safair to Lynden Air Cargo? :classic_huh:

From what I've been told, Lynden bought all of Safair's Hercs, but kept the Safair name and infrastructure with the exception of ZS-JIZ.  It had to do with some South African political problems.
