Very rare aircraft! One of only 6 GE powered A310-200's left flying in the world (all with FedEx). First flight 1983 and delivered to Martinair Holland as PH-MCA.
Short final to RWY 08L. Shot with 160mm at 7:27 a.m.
FedEx Airbus A310-203(F) flight#423 back to Memphis taxing to hold short for takeoff at CVG at around 8 AM.
Taxies to the FedEx facilities with a L.A. City Fire Unit in tow.
Holds between Rwys 25R & 25L as L.A. City Fire Crash trucks flank the aircraft. The crash units were summoned for an uknown mechanical problem.
I just love this shot !
"Trey" could use new paint. But we don't mind.
