Maastricht 1992. Balkanwar refugeeflights: Palair Macedonian Tu-154M LZ-BTU

During the begining of the Balkanwar JAT and Aviogenex were the airliners performing refugeeflights at MST. But as the Serbs became the enemy for the NATO, Europe boycotted al Serbian airliners in European airspace. Other airliners were needed to evacuate the refugee's from Yugoslavian airports. Pal...

Maastricht 12-06-1990. First visit of type: Aeroflot An-124 CCCP-82008.

As last weeks attempt to post this subject didn't succeed because of several troubles with the upload of the photo's, it is time for attempt number 2: No one ever thought in 1990 that this could be possible, and therefore no one believed it when the rumour came out that an Antonov An-124 was planned...

Maastricht 1994. Fresh Food Trading B707 F-GHFT

In the spring of 1994 MST had a nice visitor as being B707F F-GHFT of the French company Fresh Food Trading. It came in on an afternoon, announced, and stayed a couple of days at the B-apron. Not much to find on internet about this particular 707, neither about the airliner. The only thing I figured...

Maastricht 1996. American International Airways/Kalitta L-1011-200F N106CK.

The last episode of the AIA/Kalitta TriStar story is about the N106CK. This Tristar started her flying career in 1981 as G-BHBP for British Airways/Airtours. In 1991 Air lanka leased the TriStar from BA as 4R-ULM. In 1995 Marshalls of Cambridge converted the TriStar as freighter and American Interna...

Maastricht 1996. American International Airways/Kalitta L-1011-200F N104CK.

I keep the American International Airways/Kalitta TriStar Freighter story running this and next episode, as we're in it now. Apart from TriStar N102CK and N103CK in AIA/Kalitta livery, two of their freighters were not painted in their livery. Don't know if it was lack of time, but for us spotters wa...

Maastricht 1995. American International Airways/Kalitta L-1011-200F N103CK

In the mid Nineties the search for the replacement of the good old cargo Boeing 707's and DC-8's was forcing airliners to seek out for other second hand aircraft. As 747 freighters were to big for some routes, and the amount of DC-10's could not forfill the growing needs Marshall's of Cambridge in C...

Maastricht 1991/1993. GPA/Expressair: Fokker 100 PH-LMZ

Fokker 100 with msn 11309 was originally destined for Panam. The testregistration was PH-EZS. Panam intented to registrate the Fokker N417PA, but the deal felt through because of the bankruptcy of Panam. The airframe became stored, I believe at Woensdrecht.

Re: Spottingtrip from the past: Amsterdam July 1982

Viasa DC-10-30 YV-134C came in on a Lourdes flight. I believe the flight MST-Lourdes was operated by a KLM
DC-8-63. However, on the returnflight five days later there was no Eight aviable so KLM intended to send a DC-10. After all they showed up with a Viasa DC-10-30...

Spottingtrip from the past: Amsterdam July 1982

I promised you actually an old tripreport to Brussels but on second thought it would be better as I keep those old trips in chronological order, before I'm gonna forget one trip... I'm getting older too you know. Now, July 1982 was the third time I visited AMS. Still not aware of the spottingposibil...
