Pushing back for departure. Nice to see some old '10s again.
Early morning rush hour.
A look down at the North-side of STN, where most private traffic is handled. Also visible are a couple of stored aircraft such as the AFX 742 [350D]
Delivered to KLM on 12 May 2004. Modified with winglets in March 2008.
We no longer get many USAF or USN visitors to Hong Kong, but when we do it is always nice to see!
Seconds later I could almost touch the winglet !!
This a/c must be one of the very few passenger carrying Convairs still in active service anywhere
Delivered new in 1954 to Pan American World Airways as N6258C. Still in regular service at 51 years old.
