Hello, all. I have been watching some video clips of Pan Am ( the orginal one) and was wondering something. What ever happened to the Aircraft named "Clipper Detroit". I believe it was either an A310 or A300. And it was flying DTW-LHR and DTW-MIA flights.

What has happened to this aircraft and is it still in service???

Thanks

Chuck

Quoting DTWAGENT (Thread starter):

It's an A300. Looks like it's still in service as a freighter for Belgian carrier European Air Transport that operates flights for DHL. It had a couple of other fairly brief operators after Pan Am including a defunct Greek charter carrier Apollo Airlines.
