This is an A300-600, not a 734.

I dumped at the gybe mark in strong winds when I looked up at a Porter Q400 on finals. Can't stop spotting.

I saw the 737 land on Tuesday night at LHR as I was going past on a bus. I assumed I had drunk too much at the time as I didn't know they had any.

Airmale, the guy placed the wrong photo for this subject as the aircraft on the pictureone of Sudan's own A300's. As far I know there are no picture available yet of the 737.

Guys, I have told you all umpteen times that I just post whichever picture I like and not necessarily of the aircraft type being discussed, my Malaysia Airlines regional jet thread features the picture of a 777, so do you get it now Confused

I did this flight a couple fo years ago on their A320. We did Khartoum-CAI-LHR. We were down to do it on their Frnch-registered A310 (but I havd already flown donw on that one).

As I was in first class, it was bearable.

SD seems to chop and change its leasing arrangements (and therefore aircraft types). The pax figures from LHR to Khartoum look pretty poor - except during the Haj season, when they run the plane LHR-KHT-JED.
