Re: [COLUMN] 1988 From big freighter to small freighter: Aerospatiale SN-601 Corvette EC-DYE Drenair

Hello Guido, very interesting text and picture. But there must have been at least a second Drenair Corvette because I have a picture of EC-DUE taken in 1988 at MST (btw one of only two Corvette photos in my collection!) Greetings, Hannu Hi Hannu. The source I took the info from said Drenair had 2 j...

No doubts about Air Bridge Cargo. Not MST but Liège will become the ABC flights from Amsterdam.

[COLUMN] 1988 From big freighter to small freighter: Aerospatiale SN-601 Corvette EC-DYE Drenair

Once the singing legend Prince had a song called "Little Red Corvette". Now, little she is, the Aérospatiale SN 601 Corvette. But I'm sure Prince had something else in mind instead of an airplane. Yes, the Spanish airline Drenair had a fleet of small aircraft, doing business charters, but ...

[COLUMN] 1992 When you need something bigger if your B737 get's to small: Sultan Air/Aeroflot IL-86 CCCP-86061

Sultan Air was a Turkish charterairline operating a bunch of Boeing 737's, established in 1991 after the bankruptcy of Torosair. No doubt about it, Sultan Air operated in the first place between Turkey and MST only with a leased B737 ( SE-DKG, lateron SE-DKH too ) from Transwede, wich was actually a...

[COLUMN] 1991 GPA Expressair. How Eastern Airlines B757-200 N524EA became LTU B757-200 D-AMUU

Late winter 1991 we became the information that LTU purchased a former Eastern Airlines Boeing 757. Rumours said the 757 should be repainted at GPA-Expressair at MST. Now that was nice because a few months earlier Eastern Airlines went bankrupt. So we waited patiently untill the rumour came true by ...

[COLUMN] 1991 Ilyushin IL76's at MST. Aeroflot IL-76T CCCP-76528.

The first IL-76's at MST belonged to the Swiss/Russian airliner Metro Cargo in the spring of 1991( See further down in the MST-Aviation column ). In the summer of that year Aeroflot started with the, so called, Sea-Air flights from Maastricht to Vladiwostok. As the IL-76's mostly appeared during wee...

When the announcement came that the 1991 Eurotop was held in Maastricht, we all got curious of what about to come to MST. In those years it was usual that the country of presidency organized the Eurotop of EEC leaders by the end of the country's presidency, wich was after a half a year. And the 1991...

[COLUMN] 1996 The very first scheduled 747 operator at MST. American International Airways B747-200 N707CK

The last few weeks we've got really spoiled by our last new MST 747 operators, Sky Gates and Silkway. Once again a 747 seemed to be a common plane on our cargo apron(s), after the lost of Cargolux. But who was the first scheduled 747 operator ever on MST? As we all know Flying Tigers operates the ve...
