All accounts say that G-OOBK is expected in LGW tommorow dinner time. This is very good news for those travelleing as they get the added bonus.

However the CAA website still says this

G-OOBK

Awaiting Certification

not sure how much that site is updated (daily or weekly)

Follow this thread re the FCA 767's - Crosswind is the guy in the know.
http://www.airliners.net/discussions/general_aviation/read.main/1920481/

From reading it thru, BK should be in the UK on the 18th.
AN should then be going to AUH for refit and will be there for about a month.
BL was originally due into AUH at the end of JAN for refit - this has been put back till the middle of March. I think the 3 month delay that David2386 refers to is BL going into the hanger - it should still be out of there for the start of the summer.

topjet330 - Gamco based at AUH are one of the largest aircraft overhaul facilities in the world - they service both civil and military aircraft, including the heavy maintainance on the RAF's Tristar fleet.

It wouldn't surprise me if TCX had an aircraft at Gamco on a heavy maintainance check.

FCA767F landed at 00:16pm in LGW. Last i heard it was parked near the south terminal with steps and various people going inside.

Might just operate the flight today.

Looks like G-OOAN is on its way out for Refurb, so G-OOBK must have operated FCA56 to Sanford from LGW this morning, which would be a nice suprise for the pax.
