Remarks: In 1998 Continental operated a special colored DC-10. The leftside was normal Continental-livery, but the other side was in full VASP-colors. A very nice surprise! New to the database, and scanned from paper-print.

Remarks: BG079 departing back to Dhaka after about a 16 hour delay. Unfortunately for passengers delays & cancellations are commonplace at BG due to a constant shortage of aircraft thanks to their never-ending financial problems.
We’re very lucky in Hong Kong to still get Biman’s DC-10s. They’re down to 2 DC-10s now, S2-ACR & S2-ACO.
