So we spent quite a while wondering about where all the Antonovs would go after the UAE eventually turned nasty on them and cleaned up, after a fashion. We even found some of them in Russia. We speculated about locations.
Here’s a data point, and quite an encouraging one – an old mate of Viktor’s turns up in Mauritius, where he is refused an AOC for his proposed new airline. His local partner, another Russian, claims he only ever wanted to start an airline (although he does know the guy from the DRC). However, it’s quite possible that the game was the same as in South Africa with Norse Air, and Denissenko intended to get his pal to apply for the AOC and then use it for other purposes.
Meanwhile, the Viktorfeed is positively dull, and if you want really shocking news, my bank looks like a better bet.
