Maastricht Airport Juli 1984.
Vakantietijd! Heerlijk weer op je brommertje naar Beek in de hoop dat er wat leuks kwam. Geen internet, geen flightradar, gewoon op de bonnefooi. Nou, die woensdag in Juli was het best druk! Havenstakingen in Engeland leverde die dag al een Jet Cargo B707 en een TMA B707 op, welke in de weer waren voor British Airways. Maar daar waren we de dag van te voren nog over ingelicht door iemand die dichter bij de luchthaven stond. Maar dat die middag deze Transavia B737-200C PH-TVC zou komen uit Mallorca in de kleuren van haar vorige gebruiker, Markair uit Alaska wist weer niemand. Een aangename verrassing dus.
De TVC werd door Transavia regelmatig op winterlease gezet. Markair had de toen tien jaar oude 737 gehuurd voor de winter 1983/1984. Blijkbaar had Transavia geen tijd na de lease om de kist in haar eigen kleuren te laten spuiten.
En zo hobbelt de PH-TVC weer richting baankop 22 voor haar vlucht naar Palma.
Overigens is deze, inmiddels 46 jaar oude B737 nog steeds vliegende en wel voor het Canadese Nolinor Aviation als C-GLNK!

Vacation time! Great! On your moped to Beek in the hope that something nice would come. No internet, no flight radar, just on spec. Well, that Wednesday in July was quite busy! Port strikes in England that day brought us a Jet Cargo 707 and a TMA B707, which were operating for British Airways. But we were informed about this the day before by someone who was closer to the airport. But that that afternoon this Transavia B737-200C PH-TVC would arrive from Mallorca in the colors of its previous user, Markair from Alaska again nobody knew. A pleasant surprise.
The TVC was regularly put on winter lease by Transavia. Markair had rented the then ten-year-old 737 for the winter 1983/1984. Apparently Transavia did not have time after the lease to have the aircraft painted in its own colors.
And so the PH-TVC is on it's way towards runway head 22 for its flight to Palma.
By the way, this 46-year-old B737 is still flying, for the Canadian Nolinor Aviation as C-GLNK!

Maastricht Airport september 1995.
In 1995 en 1996 was deze Antonov An-22, het grootste propellervliegtuig ter wereld, ook op Beek op bezoek. Op een grijze zaterdagmiddag in September beleefde we de primeur van deze joekel op Beek. Toen zag ie er anders uit dan nu en heette Antonov Airlines nog Antonov Design Bureau. Hier zien we de grote Antonov uitrollen op de 22 op weg naar de baankop voor een one-eighty and backtrack.
De Antonov An-22 "Antei" is het grootste propellervliegtuig ter wereld. Het toestel is uitgerust met vier Kuznetsov NK-12 motoren welke weer uitgerust zijn met twee propellers, wat duidelijk op deze foto is te zien. Het toestel weegt leeg 114 ton en kan een totaalgewicht van 250 ton meetorsen. Het toestel is 58 meter lang, heeft een spanwijdte van 64,50 meter en heeft een maximum snelheid van 750 km/h, wat snel is voor een propellerkist. Er zijn er ooit 66 gebouwd, allemaal bestemd voor de Soviet Air Force. Nog één exemplaar is vliegende en dat is deze, de UR-09307.

Maastricht Airport September 1995.
In 1995 and 1996 this Antonov An-22, the largest propeller plane in the world, also visited Beek. On a grey Saturday afternoon in September, we experienced the scoop of this giant at Beek. Then it looked different than it does now and Antonov Airlines was still called Antonov Design Bureau. Here we see the big Antonov roll out on the 22 on his way to the track head for a one-eighty and backtrack.
The Antonov An-22 "Antei" is the largest propeller plane in the world. The aircraft is equipped with four Kuznetsov NK-12 engines which in turn are equipped with two propellers, which is clearly visible in this photo. The aircraft weighs 114 tons empty and can carry a total weight of 250 tons. The aircraft is 58 meters long, has a wingspan of 64.50 meters and has a maximum speed of 750 km / h, which is fast for a propeller box. 66 were built, all for the Soviet Air Force. One more of them is flying and that is this one, the UR-09307.

Maastricht Airport. Augustus 1989.
Deze Viscount verscheen op de dagelijkse Virgin dienst vanuit London-Gatwick, hoogstwaarschijnlijk omdat Virgin's eigen Viscount wat onderhoud nodig had. HOT Air was een Brits maatschappijtje wat geen lang leven beschoren had. Maar het geheel zag er wel leuk uit. Hier zien we V806 G-BAPF weer op weg naar baan 22 voor de vlucht naar London Gatwick.

Maastricht Airport. August 1989.
This Viscount appeared on the daily Virgin service from London-Gatwick, most likely because Virgin's own Viscount was in need of some maintenance. HOT Air was a British airline that did not have a long life. But the whole looked nice. Here we see V806 G-BAPF heading back to runway 22 for the flight to London Gatwick.
