Remarks: Even back then these were not common place, its been a long while since ive last seen a DC-10 and i do miss the old birds. This one had arrived at Manchester on a charter and was by far the highlight of my day, well worth the 8 mile cycle i took to get it.
Remarks: Front Port side view of EVA Air A330-203 B-16307 Cn 634, on Taxiway B at the Brisbane International Airport on 10Jul2006. Newly constructed 'A380 capable' Qantas Hangar 3 is visible at rear right. The aircraft is taxying before take-off from Rwy 19 at Brisbane Airport (BNE / YBBN), presumably back to home base in Taipei, Taiwan (TPE / RCTP). The bright green/white livery is reminiscent of that used by Cathay Pacific in the early 1980s. (Taxying A330s look like they are going down-hill!)
Remarks: Air New Zealand B747-419 ZK-NBT Cn 24885 rolls out on Rwy 19 (with thrust reversers still operating) at Brisbane Airport (BNE /YBBN) on 10Jul2006. Are Air New Zealand's Boeing 747s being supplemented or replaced by B777s?
Remarks: Täby Air Maintenance at ORB got hold of a couple of ex NWA 340's. One of them were used for spares but the others found new missions. This one was later converted to freighter and exported to Poland as SP-KPO. [Provia 100 slide]
