I just did a search of flights coming into Pearson today, and noticed an African International Airways flight coming in at about 2:30 this afternoon. Does anybody know anything about African International Airways? I believe they fly DC-8's, as that's the latest picture I was able to find on the net.

Just wondering if people have any info as to what this could be. Thanks in advance.

It's a -62 and is on the South African register. Their -54s are on the Swazi register, but only operate within Africa and the Middle East.

Interesting, thanks! Hopefully some of the YYZ photographers will be there and get this bird on the database here on airliners.net.

Is this going to be a regular service? Or was this is a VIP/Charter flight?


I like British Airways! I'm not sure why, but I do! ;-)

Is this a pax or a cargo flight?

I'd love to fly on a DC-8!



Firings, if well done, are good for employee morale.

It has been to YHM in the past. At that time (4 yrs ago) they only had the one aircraft doing ad hoc cargo charters around the world.

Man, I'd love to have seen a DC-8 land at YYZ. They used to be common as mud at YYZ.

Any idea when it's leaving?



Panam, TWA, Ansett, Eastern.......AC next? Might be good for Canada.
