Remarks:Mahan Air 074, operated by the A310, taxiing to the active runway at Delhi International Airport. This is my first catch of this airline. This aircraft was previously with Czech Airlines (CSA) from 1991 to 2009. This airframe is about 22.5 Years and still going strong.
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.
Remarks: Mahan Air on final approach for 19R. Definitely one of the more exotic carriers in Bangkok (and that's saying a lot). The A310 is getting harder and harder to see so even the aircraft type is very nice.
