Having just seen this photo of 2 x MEA 707s at NCL, I just have a few questions:

How long did Paramount use these 707s for?
Has any other MEA a/c other than 707s visted NCL?
Does anyone agree that the livery of MEA back then looked pretty good?
Who's is the 737 (-200?) in the front of the pic?
Cheers

Thanks 747400F  Smile
It's a shame that NCL doesn't have any regular links to the likes of Croatia anymore

MEA looked pretty good back then and still does today.

I would fancy two red ribbons/stripes (à la BA Union Jack) along the fuselage or around the Cedar on the tail section. It would make the whole thing beautifully striking!



I want the European Union flag on airliners.net!

Were the MEA 707's operating a one off flight, or were they scheduled flights to NCL from BEY?

Reading the pics caption, they were operating for Paramount Airways.

From the photographer:

"Paramount Airways was a charter airline and did the usual holiday flights to the Med. with MD-83s and later a 737. At the time I took the photo the based machine was running 24 hours late and with no spare aircraft in the fleet a MEA 707 took up some of their flying. I was lucky enough to be at the airport when MEA decided to swap aircraft and I caught them both on the ground at the same time".
