Remarks: Viking Airlines has rapidly expanded and moved towards more fuel efficient jets in the past year to meet the needs of its contract with travel operator Kiss. How long can they maintain this level of growth, well who knows.
Remarks: Once a proud competitor for the Boeing 737 and the DC-9, the Mercure ended up being too short-ranged for massive sales and only 10 units were ordered by Air Inter. This is one of the few remaining units, stored in Bordeaux.
Remarks: The Super King Air, a classic of the business aviation with room for 13 seats, in the platform at Bordeaux. In the background, several A330 can be seen during maintenance at Sogerma: Aer Lingus, Thai, and sadly some of the bankrupt Air Comet.
