Definitely the highlight of my trip to London! Delivered new to Niger in 1978, this rare classic was at Lasham for maintenance. (1200px)
Niger government on final runway 05. First time on database.
More than likely this bird will never fly again, such a shame for a low houred B732. Looking close up through the cabin windows it doesn't appear to have any interior in it.
In the background Polish Air Force Yak-40 (044). Two great classics built in the same year, both in 1978!
Along with Chad Government MD-80 absolutely the star of the day, arriving 25R for the African Summit!
The President of niger leaving Bologna. Note the gravel kit on landing gear.
Taxiing for takeoff from runway 30, the unexpected and welcome guest of these days, greets Bologna.
The past and the present: between these 2 Boeing 737 there are more than 35 years of history of Boeing 737!!!
"Niger01" departing from RWY 30 bound to Niamey; What a beautiful aircraft!!
