OST 16/02/2006

Post by omag » 16 Feb 2006, 14:03

Does anyone know what airplane landed at about 14:10 at EBOS? I've just seen a quite large plane ( possible 747 but I didn't see a hump on the back) on approach! What airline?

Thanks,

Omag

MKA came in at 1404. So it's probably that plane you saw. Either a 747 or a DC-8.

Nice! The colour explains the somewhat strange shape, we had a blueish-grey sky! I'm used to them white MK planes! ;D

Airliners.net showed me it's Berkut. Is this a different airline or do they operate for MK?

Cheers,

I didn't know MK Airlines has no more DC-8!
How come? What did MKA with the DC-8?

Don't forget 9G-MKA which is still stored at Manston.

And does anyone know what happened with 9G-MKT, also still stored at Bristol :?:

9G-MKT was stored (never flew for MK Airlines) and used by them for spare parts for their DC-8 fleet.

9G-MKA will either be scrapped or be sold to some african airline ... (if it's still airworthy)

Indeed, finally. I am hoping for some sun during departure, but I did go for a nightshot. After all it can depart at the most impossible hour, so I just made sure I had it :wink:
