Maastricht 1996. Mahanair IL-76TD EP-JAY

Post by Guido » 15 Dec 2018, 16:00

1996...What a year. A year where it looked like the IL-76 was a never ending story for Beek... But it was in that very same year…
A year of rapidly increasing airfreight at MST and nice visitors for the paintshop of GPA-Expressair.
Iranian cargo Airliner Saha Air started some flights at MST with their 747's that year. And in the summer suddenly Mahanair appeared with their IL-76TD EP-JAY. I don't know if it's appearance was on behalf of Saha Air, or it was here to help out in the Russian cigarette invasion. However, it was a very nice visitor to have in a nice livery.
Here you see the Ilyushin IL-76 after landing on the 22 and after it completed her one-eighty at the end of the 22.
