02:56 pm Alignment for takeoff Rwy 08.
The main reason I came here today, stunning bit of kit :-)
06.09 pm Taxiing front to the terminal Orly South towards the runway 24 bound to Santiago de Cuba
Late afternoon arrival from Havana and the reason i drove 700 miles in 2 days. Well worth it. Big thanks to Matt McNulty for helping with the editing.
One of the best attractions in the CALC 2008! President Raul Castro aboard.
Seen about to turn onto the active runway, which happens to be RWY 06R. Located at the Southwest side of the airport.
16:48 Takeoff at dusk
Thankfully (and strangely) runway 28 was active, so this beauty had to taxi in front of us for its flight back to Cuba... Speechless!
Always surprising this airplane.
