Hi guys,

another old trip report as I am now in the swing of things.

In 2007 I took a trip to the hermit kingdom, otherwise known as North Korea or the DPRK.

Flew SNN to LHR on EI and LHR to PEK on BA, all in Y. Nothing special to report.

Arrived in Beijing at the backend of a very severe Taifun as you can see from the shots.
Spent a day in Beijing, got briefed on North Korea and got my Visa, then made my way to the airport the next day.

Going to FNJ, my God - how exiting!

I am planning another trip in August which will include LHR to PEK flights with BA in J, Air Koryo in J and Y and domestic flights on Air Koryo's ancient AN-24! Stay tuned.

Very unique TR! Can you possibly describe more of your time on Air Koryo, and what it was like inside NK? How does one manage a trip like yours.

And it jut happens to have been an IL-62! That is a result. So much more interesting than the Tu-204. Thanks for sharing.

I look forward to the same experience this May on the first aviation themed tour to the DPRK.

Nothing's worse then flying the same registration twice, except flying it 4 times..

Thanks for a glimpse into what we have to come!

Wow some unique photos!

What prompted you to want to visit North Korea?

Do you have the meal photo... Looks like the same plane shot got repeated.
