[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-EON.
After her Iberia career this A300 ended up in Teheran where she was scrapped in 2006.

The Bus arrived on a Sunday morning in Orion livery.


A week later she came out in her Iberia livery, and later that day swapped with the EC-274, another Orion A300.
