Earlier this year regular contributor Tom Singfield visited Miami International Airport – here he presents a selection of his images from an apron tour and some shots taken from the perimeter fence.
1: Based in Pontiac, Michigan, the IFL Group now operates the world’s largest fleet of ‘Convairliners’. This CV5800 – a stretched C-131F Samaritan features a 16ft 4in (4.98m) longer fuselage– and is one of six converted by Kelowna Flightcraft in Canada. This example, N361FL (c/n 343) flies from MIA on FedEx contracts.
2: Delivered to Kelowna-based low-cost carrier Flair Airlines in December 2017, Boeing 737- 400, C-FLHE (c/n 28889) still carries the company’s earlier colours which have now changed to mint green and black.
