PIA's second ATR-42 - AP-BHI due for delivery in November

Post by Abbas Ali » Tue Oct 17, 2006 11:49 pm

I got following info from my friend Frank Ellemers

PIA's second ATR-42 is due for delivery in November 2006.
Aircraft Registration: AP-BHI
Construction Number: 653

After a long time we will see a PIA aircraft registration with letter 'I' in it.

I guess the second ATR-42 will sport NWFP Province Tail because it will be based at Islamabad for flights to cities like Peshawar, Chitral, Gilgit etc.

PIA's young First Officer Ramiz Abid Mirza, currently undergoing training for ATR in Toulouse, France, visited ATR & Airbus assembly line recently. At ATR's assembly line Ramiz saw PIA's second ATR 42 (AP-BHI, c/n 653) painted in PIA livery. The aircraft's tail is sporting Baluchistan province motif and is named "Ziarat - The City of Flowers".

Thanks to Ramiz for the info.

That means this new ATR is having the same tail design as the previous one currently has... I was expecting to see in either Punjab or NWFP tail because it is to be based in Islamabad according to Abbas Bhai.

Ramiz; its a great surprise for me to read as I was thinking that you suddenly disappeared, well a lot of prayers for your training on ATR42. Hope to speak with you soon; once you will be back again to Kuwait on your next vacation and another hope Insha'Allah to fly with you as well on some regional flight once I will be there in Pak!
