[COLUMN] 1981-2012 31 years B747-200's at MST

In 1983 I finally was able to catch my very first B747-200 at MST. After the missed first visit of type in 1981, and the Lufthansa B747-200F D-ABYO because of no film in my camera. Not that I forgot it, but I had something else in mind to spend my money on that period. So the summervacation of 1982 ...

[COLUMN] 1989 GPA Expressair. Orion Airways/Iberia A300-B4 EC-273

A nice GPA Expressair customer in 1989 was Iberia, who bought two former Orion A300's. In this case it was A300 EC-273, who was the ex G-BMZK of British charterairline Orion Airways. Therefore the Bus was owned by Lufthansa as D-AIBD. Her temporary registration was EC-273, but lateron she became EC-...

The reason for this is that the inside of MAAS hangar 1, the former GPA/Expressair hangar is rebuild recently so that only single aisle aiplanes fitted in the hangar. The A321 and B757 will...

After the winter of 1984/1985 Virgin increased their LGW-MST service into a daily one. Unfortunally that was the end of the BIA BAC1-11 G-AXMU, who hopped over from BIA to Air UK that summer, still as G-AXMU. Virgin leased an Vickers Viscount V806 from British Air Ferries. Various Viscounts were pai...

DC-8's, DC-9' and even DC-10's ( in 1982 even a Viasa DC-10! ) showed up before 1982, when the Airbus A310-200 were introduced in the KLM fleet. From the summer of 1983 on it ...
