[COLUMN] 1989. Military matters. AFCENT charter ATA L-1011 N191AT

Postby Guido » 11 Dec 2016, 13:45

Thanks to the presence of the AFCENT headquarters in Brunssum MST received several militairy charters from the US. In the winter of 1989 an American Trans Air Lockheed L-1011 TriStar appeared on a militairy charter with new US troops for the AFCENT HQ. The N191AT was not the only one that day. There was also a Ports of Call B707 in the house that very same day. The TriStar came in from the USA and landed in the early afternoon. A couple of hours later it left to Frankfurt Rhein-Main AFB.
An Impression:

The L-1011 landed on the 22.

After landing it backtracked the 22 till the taxiway opposite the tower.

Looks good this good old classic...

Look on the apron that afternoon: Netherlines SF-340 PH-KJK. ATA L-1011 N191AT. Ports of Call B707 N457PC. And BAF Viscount G-AOYN on a Virgin flight.

Here you see the L-1011 leaving for Frankfurt.
