I got an opportunity to ferry an empty aircraft for delivery. I was pretty excited because it's my second time since school flight in January last year. Only this time the plane was really empty, only 2 of us, my captain and me. (Last time there were another 3 flight instructors plus a friend of mine.) Here are some facts about this flight:

Flight 8430 route: Don Mueang airport to Suvarnabhumi airport. (DMK-BKK) Flight planned route BKK DCT SVB; planned distance 45NM. Flight time: 20 minutes. The flight was originally scheduled to depart Don Mueang airport at 5.30pm but unfortunately postponed till 8pm because aircraft engineers were unable to complete the maintenance on schedule.

After hanging around at dispatcher's office for almost 3 hours we left for the aircraft. It was weird because there were like only 2 engineers and nobody else. Took about 15 minutes to get ready. Took-off and landed safely at Suvarnabhumi in less than 20 minutes. Back to Don Mueang airport by company car in another 40 minutes. Then drove back home.

And that's my 07.07.07.
