Hello everybody,

when did Lufthansa´s remaining 747-100, D-ABYA and D-ABYC (D-ABYB having crashed at NBO in 1974) leave the fleet?

Thanks,

Hi Daniel,

I looked in a old Herpa Wings World Magazine because there is a report that is called "75 years Lufthansa" but unfortunately I could not found your requested information.

I found only this about the 741: On Easter Monday 1970, the first of three initially ordered jumbos arrived in HAM. The official name of the plane was 747-130, registered D-ABYA. Named after the state of North Rhine Westphalia, it took off for its first flight from FRA to JFK on April 26, 1970.

Sorry but no word about the dates when D-ABYA and D-ABYC have leave the LH fleet.

I hope that somebody knows the answer because I am also very interested.

Patrick

LH sold its two 747-130s as early as 1978 together with the PW-powered 747-230Bs, when GE-powered 747-230Bs arrived in sizable numbers.

Aer Lingus acquired EI-BED from Lufthansa in 1979. That's pretty much in line with Na's time frame.

D-ABYA was sold to Braniff as N610BN in 1978.

The last one, 'ABYC, joined EI in 1979 and continued in service until about '94. It has now, unfortunately, been scrapped, but Big Ed served Aer Lingus well for many years. (It was called Big Ed, because the last two letters of the reg were painted just below the cockpit window - SI, SJ and ED!)

Just to add to above:

D-ABYA LH sold to ITEL corp. 29-Nov-78 & leased to Braniff Dec-78 as N610BN.

D-ABYC LH sold to ITEL corp. 9-Jan-79 & sold to Aer Lingus Jan-79 as EI-BED.

Thanks to all of you. The reason I asked this is this: I have an LH safety card of a "B 747". It is dated 1/80 and was obviously used on all the All Pax 747s they had at that time. The plane depicted on the cover has only 3 upper deck windows and JT9D engines, so I was wondering whether it is a -100 or an early -200. Since LH didn´t have any -100s in 1980 any more, it´s obviously one of the last old -200s they had.
