Remarks: [1600px] My 175th shot in the Jp database. I'm really thankful to API and all its fellow members. This shot is dedicated to my dear friend Prathamesh Kini who loves these 340s but has twice missed getting a good shot of this bird.
Remarks: [1200 px] The light was extremely harsh, yet looking at the 'Old is Gold' funda, I had to ensure I would get a shot of this bird which first flew in 1990s. It features a C12 Y190 & from trip reports that I have read, it seems to be a very well maintained bird. It was initially delivered to CSA in 1991 & was stored for 2 months in 2009 before being delivered to Mahan Air.
