USAfrica

I was digging through photos and came across this beauty (the MD-11). I have never heard of this airline before, even as a charter. Can anyone share any info with me about this airline and their fleet, or this particular aircraft?!

Thanks much in advance,

USAfrica was an airline that began service July in 1994. The airline was based at Washington Dulles, serving flights between IAD and Johannesburg, South Africa. The airline started out with 2 ex-American MD-11's. I know that they went out of business a few years later.

Yeh

They also flew to Cape Town from Washington I think in 93/94 but the service stopped pretty soon thereafter. I think they were a charter airline.

I think that pic was taken at CT international airport.
