LOG: Toulouse Blagnac 20-21/8/2018

Log with credit to Nick Lack.

“I met up with fellow travellers Bob Smith and Andy at Toulouse and had a drive round when it got dark as it was a very pleasant night and we were hoping there would be some hangars open, and sure enough there was. ATR finishing hangar was wide open along with the 320 prod line and the 320 fitting out hangar. Most of these were logged on the 20th with just a couple added on the 21st. Being August it seems that the whole of France is on holiday so the airport was very quiet. The 21st was a very slow day. The following log is not a complete one as I didn’t take much notice of the long time stored aircraft.”

Also outside the Air France hangar was the troublesome Easyjet Neo G-UZHI. This has been returned for some maintenance as its gone tech a lot since it was delivered last month. Hopefully they will sort out the problem with this plane.
