There is a white aircraft, looking like an A300/A310 in this picture, just ahead of the BA's tail.

Which aircraft is this? I thought it was the ex-AI all cargo A310 about to be broken up, but this looks like it is in another location.


By the way, the ex-AI A310 can be seen here, jut above the Jetlite 737.

That's definitely an A32x family aircraft. Red underbelly suggests ex-IT. That's where the rest of their abandoned aircraft were parked, too.

Thanks, It sure looks like having red underbelly. But I thought that all the ex-IT A32Xs had been taken out of India?

On the subject, there is a sizable row of IT turboprops in MAA, surprised they haven't ended up with other carriers already, as they're quite new builds at the end of the day.

That is VT-VJM - Kingfisher Airlines Airbus A319-133 CJ, gathering dust.

Here is a picture of it that I took a few months back.

Thanks for the pic. My God, that poor bird is in a bad shape. The patches near the wing root and in the APU area suggest that it too has been cannibalised.

Bloody Mallya!

The preservation schedule is just not being followed, which is unprofessional and disapointing.

Why don't they sell it off (this and other private jets of VJM)? Something is better than nothing right. Plus, I am sure this CJ is not sitting free of cost on this remote stand. So why make the hole in your pocket bigger and bigger everyday?

Just like some of their ATRs/320s/332s/345s, incorrect mx records might be the case. Also remember that the A319CJ market is quite the niche too.

It's quite possible these are stuck in the innumerable court cases and VJM is using his muscle to drag the cases on. Most of these a/c are leased and VJM is probably not the owner, but the lessor cannot take them back pending the court case (as the lessor's probably filed a case for recovery of a/c due to non-payment of lease amount)!

On the brighter side, why dont they transport this bird to the Juhu garden ?

Would be a great upgrade over this, true:

Thats the problem with the legal system....time delays leading to the ruin of unpreserved aircraft such that a few yrs later these machines lose all value and are scrapped.
