Which airline and aircrafttype will do the official opening flight to and landing at the new Athens International Airport in Spata? The Greek president in a Olympic Airways A340 perhaps? Reply if you have the answer already...

These things never quite work out right. Wasn't the first landing at DIA a United 737 from Colorado Springs? Great.

I bet it's a Macedonian 737 charter from Skopje or a slightly defective DAS 707 making a precautionary landing on it's way to delivering arms from Uganda to the Balkans.

fly Saha Air 707s daily from Tehran's downtown Mehrabad to Mashhad, Kish Island and Ahwaz

even in that case priority would be given to an Olympic aircraft, calling from 80 miles out that they have the runway in sight.

I got no idea, but it would be nice if someone came in a Cessna and landed ahead of the Olympic aircraft Big grin.

Just like birdwatching - without having to be so damned quiet!
