Strange Flight From Seoul ICN Airport

Wed Mar 05, 2003 3:04 pm

This was taken at ICN airport last October while I was passing through. Check out the destination of the 4th flight from the bottom.



A government/diplomatic charter? I'm guessing it's not a tourist flight.  Smile

There's another possibility: the two Korean governments occasionally allow flights for family relatives who live in the South to visit ones in the North. This could be one of those special charter flights.

All the 3 times i was at ICN, I saw the IL62 (i think) of Air Koryo parked at the gate!

When I have been at Pyongyang in March 2001 there was also a JS flight to Seoul (ICN) announced, if I'm not mistaken it left FNJ around 20:00.

Guess RayChuang could be right, or a government flight for a delegation or something like that.
