New Airplane At Mexicana

Tue Mar 11, 2003 2:37 am

Yesterday as I was arriving from Acapulco, I was able to spot this at Mexicana's hangar.

Anybody know's If this plane is new?? Or just having a service. Is it of/for Mexicana or somebody else?

thanks

Sorry for the quality but it was a very contaminated day at MEX, and it took me by surprise

It's a Rolls Royce powered B-757-200. The registration isn't easy to make out, but it looks like a former National Airlines bird.

Perhaps the lessor cut a deal with MX to pick it up on the cheap?
