For sure one of the highlights of the year. It's amazing how well conserved this 727 looks. [1200 px]
Departing Southend for Lisbon and then onto Banjul after maintenance and storage, originally arrived here in August 2010.
[1600px] Beautiful morning light shines on this fantastic classic that is now ready to return to the Gambian Government. Canon 600D Canon 100-400L IS.
Returning to the hangar at sunset after having completed high power engine runs, hopefully in preparation for her first flight since arriving in August 2010.
Taped up and awaiting its turn to head into the hanger before returning to the Gambian Government. Quite remarkable that this aircraft was built 45 years ago... Canon 600D Canon 18-55.
This classic 727 has seen better days. Named Kanilai with The Republic of The Gambia titles.
Looks as if she might be here for some time.....
A "new" government aircraft ! Ex-HZ-WBT, HZ-WBT2, N727GG
