Hi all

A bit of a strange request! Looking back through my old (printed) photos, I came across this one taken when we went on our honeymoon to Zakynthos, Greece in July 2002. I took the photo from the aircraft window when we landed, and we were followed in by this Tupolev 154:

Sorry for the poor quality but it is scanned from a photograph!

Closer inspection reveals the name as something like "Slov..... Aerolines" or similar - but I can find absolutely no record of this on A.net or the other one!

Can anyone help with which airline this is, and even if it has a registration (if there was only one operating for them!).

Thanks in advance,
Noel

Hi,

Could you please scan that photo in again on your scanners highest dpi setting, and then e-mail me on benjy_cox@msn.com ? That way I can get a clearer zoom. If I cannot find out from that who is expeirienced in photography, he might be able to help.

Thanks

I'd say Slovak Airlines!

Thanks for your quick replies! I actually searched for "Slovakian Airlines" which wasn't going to fetch anything up  Wink

From that I have worked out it must have been OM-AAA, as at the time OM-AAB had a banner underneath the front windows, and OM-AAC had English titles (it was definitely Slovenske Aerolinie now I recall!)....
