Well..needs a wash and owner. Has been stored here for about 10 years. LH Engine broke down.
The final fate. sadly it didn't become a bar in downtown LBV ant the scrapping took about two weeks only.
Goin' for the visual at runway 34 with the Dornier 228 of SCD Aviation.
Rotting away in a remote corner of the airport. Sadly it's a pick a part plane for the rest of the fleet. Soon to be scrapped:-(
First appearance of this one on the whole net. The old Fokker still going places in central Africa. GETRA is sadly one of the black list members.
Another new addition to the fleet of Nationale Regionale Transport, NRT. Started flying commercially last week. In Gabon the airline industy is booming also.
The interior or what is left of it, still looks beter that the outside. wings and tail are already gone. soon to be a bar in LBV.
Here is another result of the booming aviation business in Gabon. This MR-Lines F28 Flies daily services to Port Gentil and Franceville.
This is the runway!; Impressive how strong the undercarriage has to be to land on this soft, sandy strip. Sometimes it takes digging out the aircraft after landing.
That's how I like it to fly.
Note that the first class is not seperated very much from the economy class.
Damaged beyond repair in a storm on march 27, 2002. Now still stored here. 5N-BBU in the back.
The world of the -200 series.
