Remarks: All Biman!Its rare to get them together at the gates as many foriegn airlines land at this time and also rare to catch three DC10s.R-L S2-ACR(DC10),S2-ADK(A310),TF-AMY(B744)pushing back for JED,S2-ACP(DC10),S2-ACQ(DC10) and S2-ADF(A310).
Remarks: I wish I had time and better angle to frame this shot. It was shot from inside a fast taxing aircraft (VT-JBK) and I had about a second to shoot as the aircraft turned quickly. All three of United AW MD80s are at the back (S2-AEH/U and AFV). The DC10 is S2-ACR and the Bristow chopper is in Bangladesh supporting off shore gas exploration.
Remarks: Left to right are S2-ADZ, S2-ADY, S2-ACS (DC10) - the engine less trio and most probably they will never fly again. S2-ACQ and S2-ACR are the other two DC10s which are still seeing better days and are still regularly flying.
Remarks: The rusting corner at DAC. Only the Tristar (S2-AKB) occasionally flies these days. The Saudi Arabian/Atlanta Icelandic 747 used to be TF-ARS. It had engine fires during landing in March 2008. I have seen her at the same location a few times since mid 2008, every time in ever deteriorating conditions. S2-AEL is the Dash 8 of Royal Bengal Airlines and S2-AAX is the HS748 of Easy Fly Express. Both of these airlines are now defunct. While the HS748 supposed to have been sold in Africa, the Dash 8 faces a more uncertain future with at least one engine/propeller missing.
Remarks: The two Pegasus 737s (TC-AAP & TC-API) are on lease to Biman. Still in full Pegasus colours but with just a Bangladeshi flag on the nose sction. Far in the background is the Saudi/Atlanta Icelandic 747 (TF-ARS) which has been written off due to a engine fire during landing at DAC in late March 2008. Also in the picture are Biman F28 & GMG Dash 8. There are also a Biman A310, a Biman DC10 and a Best Air 737. Can you spot these three? ;o)
Remarks: The only runway (14/32) at DAC. It doesn't appear to be, but this runway is just over two miles long. EK582 has just cleared after the delayed arrival from Dubai as we line up for take off to Doha as QR344, operated by A300, A7-ABV.
Remarks: This is the mirror image of the seal of the Civil Aviation Authority of Bangladesh found on windows at the domestic terminal. This is from inside the terminal looking out...I guess it is meant to be read by folks coming to the terminal.
