Last weekend I took what is likely my last A300 flight, a r.t. from Miami to Port Au Prince Haiti on American.

Both on arriving and departing, noticed at the far end of the terminal what appears to be an abandones 727 aircraft. However, I could not make anything of the livery.

Is anyone familiar with whose aircraft this belongs to or might have belonged to ? Thought it might have belonged to the former flag carrier, Haiti Trans Air, but that is just a guess at this point.

Anyone with further knowledge please pass along.

Thanks!

Well I see they were an Orlando based charter outfit long gone defunct. But just curious how one of their 727s ended up at PAP of all places.

Not sure if that is it, but it is the only B727-200 listed there in CH-Aviation's records. That was just a guess.

According to Wiki (I know it isn't trust worthy) there are a couple of planned airlinesin Hati:
Caribbean Pearl Airways and Haitair. Maybe one of these companies, if they ever get off the ground, are planning on using the plane?

Wasn't Planet owned by that guy that created all the "boy" bands? If so...I think he had 3 or 4 aircraft total.
