Platinum Airways remembers MH370

Platinum MH370

Platinum Airways, the very virtual Open Skies airline, will remember MH370 and its passengers and crew. Destination of the Week will visit four airports that play a significant role in the search and recovery operation of the ill-fated Malaysian flight.

In Memory Of MH370 will start at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (WMKK), where the B777 took off just after midnight local time on 8 March. The second destination is the Royal Australian Air Force Base Pearce (YPPA) near Perth, Western Australia, from where search missions to the Southern Indian Ocean depart. In Memory Of MH370 then visits Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (KSEA), the closest airport to the National Safety Transportation Board’s Western and Pacific offices. As the aircraft was built by Boeing, the NTSB is bound to be involved in the investigation. And we end In Memory Of MH370 with a visit to another investigative authority, the Air Accidents Investigation Branch based at Farnborough (EGLF), as the AAIB was instrumental in determining the probable crash location based on satellite data from INMARSAT.

As usual, DOTW offers charts to be downloaded and links to scenery files. A selection of YouTube videos usually contains flight deck and ground views with landings and departures.

About Platinum Airways:
Keen to deliver on its mission to keep the fun in the hobby, Platinum Airways is probably the only virtual airline to combine an Open Skies policy, allowing its pilots to fly any mission of their choice with the aircraft of their choice at the time of their choice, with a strategic hub network. The carefully selected hubs, Newark (KEWR), Dallas-Fort Worth (KDFW), Vancouver (CYVR), Perth (YPPH) and Brussels (EBBR), should be attractive to a global membership. In addition, Platinum Airways offers its pilots an often cheeky Destination of the Week, Military and Cargo. Sticking to the KISS principle (Keep It Straight and Simple), Platinum Airways hosts an active forum and a screenshot of the week competition, with the winner providing the main picture on its home page for the next week.
