Looking back on 1998, part 1 (22 pictures)

Post by LifelinerOne »

Hello everybody!

it was a rather grey and dull Saturday so I decided to scan some old pictures and share them with you all. 1998 was quite a busy year with a lot of trip abroad; Paris, Lisbon, Frankfurt, London, Fairford, Madrid and Brussels were all visited that year. Of course some pictures were taken at Schiphol as well.

We'll start with this picture from January, when Garuda was still flying at Amsterdam:

Image

Some from Paris-CDG:

Image

Debonair was a short lived UK regional airline.

Image

Aeroflot operated the A310 on a daily basis to CDG.

Image

Air Exel still had it's own nice colors!

Image

Air France still flew with the good old B737-200! Love those engines!

Image

TAAG operated flights to Europe with their B747-300's. Great colors!

Image

TWA was still around, with this B767 showing the last colorscheme of the airline.

Image

Pulkovo showed off this great IL86.

Paris-Orly:

Image

AOM was also still around and also operated the DC-10.

Some from Schiphol:

Image

Transavia leased an A310 in full colors! I think these colors looked great on the Airbus.

Image

Canada 3000 operated brand new A330's on summer charter flights.

Image

A soccer game brought this Iberia classic Jumbo to Schiphol.

Image

Northwest also flew their B747-400's to Schiphol, including this one in special Worldplane colors.

Madrid:

Image

Tunisair leased this A300 from AMC Airlines from Egypt.

Image

Air Europa Express was the feeder company of Air Europa, operating ATP's.

Image

Air Europa had some B737-300 flying with advertisements like this one with Martini advertising.

Image

Aerolineas Argentinas had this B747-200 with special soccer stickers due to the World Championship.

Image

Iberia still operated the great DC-10.

Image

As well as the DC-9.

Image

They also leased this DC-8 for Cargo flights and painted it in full colors!

Image

Aviaco was still an independent airline, operating DC-9's.

Image

Swiftair flew planes in full DHL colors, like this SA227.

Next part will be Fairford, Frankfurt and London-Heathrow.

Cheers! :wave:

Very nice!

I saw the Iberia DC8 EC-EMX last week in Madrid. It was operated by Cygnus Air, but had its titles all painted over.

A picture can be found in my phototopic "Madrid 14.03.2008".
