Remarks: First photo in the database of Dragonair's newest addition to the fleet. B-HLE has been transferred across from Cathay and is the first of several lower-weight model A330s destined to be transferred across. Dragonair have returned two of their own A330s to the leasing company in the last year or so and rumours are that the higher-weight A330s ordered by Dragonair originally for their Australian routes (Which were never started) will be transferred across to Cathay who can put them to good use.
Remarks: Dragonair have painted a special colour scheme on this A330 to commemorate their 25th Anniversary. Dragonair was formed in 1985 with two 737-200s and has grown to being a oneworld affiliate member with a large fleet of A330s and A320s. They also recently won Skytrax Regional Airline of the year. The titles on the other side of the aircraft are in English.
Remarks: Not too sure who operates this, but it isn't Cargo B since they have gone bankrupt already. Quite possibly Air Bridge Cargo. Either way, it is a good looking plane as it rotates off runway 25L.
(Thanks to those who said this is operated by NCA. However it is not. It was always named NCA Aquarius, even in Cargo B operation because the aircraft was owned by NCA all along. This flight turns out was the ferry flight to Xiamen, having come in from Victorville straight after storage)
Remarks: Blasting off runway 25L with the lush green hills in the background. Also visible are some cable cars of the Ngong Ping 360 tourist attraction, which takes punters up to visit the largest outdoor seated buddah in the world.
