All White 767 At LHR 9/29

Mon Sep 30, 2002 5:24 am

Hello all,

I live near the approach path to Heathrow and today at about 1.15pm I saw what appeared to be a 767-200 whose operator I could not recognise. It had an all white fueselage and what appeared to be a small black logo on the tail, the engines too, were painted white.

Was anyone at LHR today who may have seen this aircraft? I normally get to see the aircraft better but this one was well past my best point of view by the time I saw it so sorry if my description is a little sketchy...

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Regards

Hello

Thanks for the responses. I went to the photo gallery and checked out the Nigeria Airways aicraft and that is definately the aircraft I saw! Thanks LGW.

N767KS seems like quite an interesting aircraft. Operated by Mid East Jet Inc and 50% crewed by U.S. and Saudi Nationals. Is it just me, or, is there a "political compromise" on the crewing of this operation? Or maybe it's just that a foreign investor needs to employ locals if investing in Saudi Arabia? But then why operate a U.S. registered aircraft? Call it curiosity!

Sorry for all the questions but if anyone can provide a link to a website or more information on Mid East Jet Inc, it would good to learn more about their fleet and operations.
