How Did Iran Air Get Those A300-600s?

Sat Aug 03, 2002 10:58 pm

With all the nonsense surrounding the A330 purchase by IR, I wonder how they manage dto get the two A300-600 with GE engines in 1994 when an unfriendly goverment was in power.

They were bought new from AI. At the time of that order, there was a slight raprochement btwn Iran & the US, and the order was approved.
I dumped at the gybe mark in strong winds when I looked up at a Porter Q400 on finals. Can't stop spotting.
