    Number 358, 378 and number 393.

    Can't wait to see these take to the skies and even better, can't wait to fly with them! So excited for SAS!
    Things are moving nicely along... heard a small bird stating that the first A350 of SAS has been "started"... whatever that means.

    According to the production list, she has now received her identification numbers: SE-RSA

      Flight SK996 PRK - CPH

      Two VIP's are flying right now aboard the A340-313 LN-RKG Gudrod Viking!
      This was the plane you returned on from Hong Kong to Copenhagen, Jan-Olav …business class, but I am very sure neither of these VIP's are sitting in your seat!

      Mao Sun and Xing Er - Welcome to your new home in Copenhagen!
      And very well done SAS for adding a bit extra livery to the aircraft for this special flight!
      (although there seems to be a Paris landmark rather than the Little Mermaid in the picture in these links ...but I'm sure there will be Danish planespotter photos in due course!)

        Ah, thank you so much for sharing these links.

        I bet they were sitting in Business too, drinking champagne and sleeping softly in a Hästens bed with luxurious Hästens pillow and blanket.

        LOL.

          Brilliant reply! I can already feel a cartoon coming on! But I’d better just make a note in case I'm totally out of ideas for a future birthday card or other auspicious occasion.
          btw back in 2011 our Edinburgh pandas arrived in a Fed-Ex plane with extra livery though I didn't get to see it.

        Two Scandinavian's arriving ARN on May 4th 2018:

        First, LN-TUA, a 30 year old Boeing 737-700 from April 1998 with rich history from both Braathens, SAS Braathens and SAS Norge. She carries the name Ingeborg Eriksdatter. A month later, she was retired and placed in storage at San Bernardino (US), where she remains till today.

        LN-RRX Ragnfast Viking, a Boeing 737-600 from January 1999, when she was originally registered as SE-DNR. She has since then retired from service in January 2019, and placed in storage on February 4th 2019 at St. Athan AFB (US).

        Indeed you are correct!

        Is the St. Athan a large aircraft demolition site in Europe? I had never heard of it until now.

        I have always had a wet and impossible dream to buy a used B747 and make it either my home or make a restaurant in it. Perhaps I should go for something more moderate, a used B737?

        According to your link, it does look like RRX has made her final flight.

          For some reason aircraft salvage has become big business in the UK. I didn't realise there was as much at St Athan, but knew that there was a lot going on at Kemble Airport, another ex-RAF station near us: www.airsalvage.co.uk. There are certainly spare 747-400 airframes at both, but Thijs may have to use his extra large trailer to transport from here to Trondheim!

          St Athan was an RAF base until recently, when it was bought out by Cardiff Airport and the Welsh Government. Aviation is quite big business in South Wales, BA does a lot of maintenance at Cardiff, and GE has a major engine overhaul facility just north of the city. It's not unusual to overtake GE90s on the back of trailers when you drive up and down the M4.
          Cheers,

          Mark.

            Very interesting, thanks for the link and additional information which sent me on a web search and reading binge earlier today.

            Found some interesting pages: http://airsalvage.co.uk/services/cabin-adapt-gallery/ and then an image of G-BOAA too, which sent me on a Concorde search including this informative page: https://www.daftlogic.com/informatio...rde-planes.htm and this one too: https://www.heritageconcorde.com/g-boaa-206

            Thanks for the "surf" today.

              Here is a Scandinavian A330-343 bound for a US airport (I think it was). With a small chance for an error, this looks like LN-RKR... if so, this one was delivered to SAS in September 2015, carrying the name Tore Viking.

                Here is another Scandinavian full of travellers: LN-RNW, Boeing 737-783(WL) from March 17th 2010.

                She answers to the name GRANMAR VIKING.

                I have noticed in the past, but sometimes, the tale fin of the B737 appears gigantic!

                  For the next Scandinavian, I lost my notes. I have no idea which one this is, other than it's my currently favourite airline and not one of my favourite aircrafts.

                    Meet OY-KAM RANDVER VIKING, an A320-232 with an interesting story.

                    She started her life as VT-IND with IndieGo Airlines back in October 2006 and was withdrawn from service October 2012.

                    In January 2013, she came to SAS and has been there since.

                      Then, to one of the highlights of that day... LN-RKS Frithiof Viking, an Airbus A330-343 from September 2015:
