[COLUMN] 1983 Conflicts and diversions Belgium and Zaire - Part 3

Postby Guido » 16 Oct 2016, 10:19

In the winter of 1984 MST became a new cargo airliner from Zaïre, named Zaïre Cargo. With a single DC-8 they flewn twice a week between Kinshasa and Maastricht. But by the time they started their operations at MST there wasn't a conflict between Belgium and Zaïre at all.
But six weeks after the startup they moved all operations to Brussels before they came part of a conflict...

Their only DC-8, 9Q-CDM, was a 54CF and started her career at Air Canada in 1964. In 1984 it was part of Zaïre Cargo. in 1987 Zaïre cargo came to an end and the Eight became EL-AJQ of Liberia World. Zuliana was the last operator of this Eight untill 1995.
