November 2007 Trivia

Post by Aaron Robinson » 09 Nov 2007, 04:46

One trivia submission may be made per pilot. The first correct responder for each question will be announced in the following month’s issue.

This month’s questions:
1. What active passenger airliner (specific registration) of our airlines has flown continuously for that airline the longest?

2. SimAirline.net currently has 94 hubs, three of which have nonstop flights to 52 other hubs. What are those three airports?

3. SimAirline.net has three of the world’s current airlines with faces on their tails: AeroMexico, Alaska, and Hawaiian. What is the fourth?

Clarification: active airline, human face.

2: LHR, ATL, HKG

I think these are the choices:

1. Northwest DC-9-31 (N8921E) originally delivered to Eastern, though there's some dispute with N8920E.

2. I guess DXB, LHR, JFK, EWR, LAX. From these, LHR, JFK and EWR would top the list, so LHR, JFK and EWR is my answer.

3. National Airline...exchange airline with Pan American

It's not the DC-9 at Northwest as they received those from Republic when they merged in the 80s.

1. Yeah right...
2. To guess: LHR, JFK, LAX
3. Easiest way to look is just look over all the tails on the main page banner, but I can't find any.

Aaron said an active airline, and Jetsgo is a defunct Canadian airline that operated from 2002 to 2005. I was going to say it myself, but upon the research I found that out.

#1 is Concorde G-BOAC 1976-2003 at 27 years if I understand the question correctly.
#3 is BMIbaby.

The Northwest DC-9s while the oldest in the fleets aren't the old to NW, they've only been at NW since 1986 after the merger with Republic putting them at 21 years in service with Northwest.
Ship 8921 is the oldest in the fleet which will celebrate her 41st birthday in March.

Well I did a little research and Air Canada's Boeing 767-200 (C-GAVC, I think) has been in service since 1983.
