The new Allplane Blog is here!

Those of you that were already regular visitors of the Allplane Blog must have noticed the scope of the change. Yes, after some months in the net, operating with a very basic template and configuration that delivered less than optimal upload speeds, the time has come to unveil the new design of the Allplane Blog!

But the change is not merely aesthetic, besides the new functionalities that have also been added and the enhanced connectivity with other blogs and social media platforms, this is just the first step in the project to make of Allplane a much more rounded and comprehensive platform for all those in love with the world of commercial aviation and air travel.

Watch this space!

Manchester United players in the latest Turkish Airlines commercial

At this blog we follow very closely all news about Turkish Airlines, an airline in the middle of an expansion cycle that is likely to consolidate Istanbul as one of Europe's major hubs.

We reported some time ago on the marketing initiative that led the Turkish airline to sponsor two of Europe's major football clubs: F.C. Barcelona and Manchester United. We spoke about the FC Barcelona deal last time, but it is Man United's players that are now the main characters of Turkish Airlines latest commercial. Watch out if you happen to be on the same flight!

How this Alrosa TU-154 made it to the news

When last August I was at Domoededovo airport, in Moscow, this Alrosa TU-154 caught my attention, Soviet-made aircraft are becoming more and more difficult to spot. What I could not imagine that this same plane (registration number RA-85684) would make it to the news a few weeks later, when it made an emergency landing in a remote Russian airfield and overrun the runway. Fortunately everyone on-board survived!
