Maastricht 30-04-1992. Balkan An-12 LZ-BAE

This week, unfortunally, the management of MAA decided to ban the An-12 as gesture to those little few who argue against the airport. You can discuss about the fact or it is a wise desicion, or not. I generally do understand why. After all, there's no other plane visiting MST where the pollution is as visible as the An-12, and that is what those people see. But however, I really regret the decision…

1992...Wasn't there really an An-12 before that time at MST? I think yes! But it must have been the fact that I wasn't there at the same time. I did captured An-12 YU-AIC of the Yugoslav Government at LHR in 1988, so it wasn't lack of interest in the plane.
A full load of little chickens were the purpose of the visit of Balkan An-12 LZ-BAE, here seeing backtracking the 22. She couldn't take a better day than the 30th of april 1992, as that was the first day of strikes in Germany, making a little Düsseldorf of Maastricht Airport.
She left the fleet of Balkan in 2003. Unfortunally this airframe is crashed somewhere in 2010.
