`UN' 727 Out Of Baghdad

Wed Mar 19, 2003 11:22 pm

Does anyone know the i.d. (i.e. reg.) of the UN/United Nations titled all-white 727-200 that featured on some newscasts last night , flying inspectors out of Baghdad?

I think it was ZS registered.
Have you checked the database, I remember seeing it in here.

If this 727 is ZS-NVR...and I have no way of confirming at the moment, it would be ex-LH 727-230 D-ABKI 'Bremerhaven'. Line #922, it was delivered new in 1973. Regards.

It was a Safair 727. Was recalled from UN duties in the D.R. of Congo, and repositioned to Cyprus some days ago.
