The Ghana DC-10 has been a regular visitor to LHR for 20 years now, even I remember when it was new to them!
It seems that the airline is in big trouble, some of our older guys remember building VC-10s for Ghana when they worked at BAC, now like many African carriers they are on the edge of collapse.
Any on here ever flown on Ghana?
This article appeared last week, seeing the Ghana DC-10 land yesterday reminded me of it;

To illustrate, (mostly seen 9G-ANA at LHR over the years, judging by the photos on the database they've had a few more than that in the past);

Hey there,
Great now how are they paying the use of Skyservice's A-330 C-FRAE?

I am a South African travel agent and can tell you their
constant time changes within West Africa are a nightmare
I avoid them where I can but it is not always possible.
A prime example was Accra/Freetown on one Saturday in March which
connected with the SAA flight from Johannesburg.Three days before
flight cancelled-next flight the following Tuesday.I dont think they will
last long as they are struggling to do the West Africa network at the
moment.

Cheers!
Tony

That's unfortunate, hearing about that reminds me about BWIA and its own near brush with death. Hopefully it can be saved or else it may go the way of Air Afrique, Nigeria Airways, Ansett, Swissair, Sabena... to the grave.

Hop to it, fly for life!

Tells me it was an even better idea to go to the airport to shoot it on Tuesday. But I don´t remember the reg coz I was busy shooting about 9 pics during it´s take off.


The Metro might be the Sub(optimal)way
