Swiss A340 1st Commercial Service (webcam)

Tue Jul 08, 2003 3:17 pm

Hi all

Against all odds, the 1st Swiss A340, HB-JMA, will go into service today at 09.55 hrs as LX246 from Zurich via Dubai to Karachi. 189 Passengers are expected.

The webcam shows the aircraft parked at bay A46, unfortunately right from the rear

It looks really nice.

Thanks to the live cam, Just watched it leave Zurich on its journey to KHI via DXB.

Took off at 10.21 am local time.

Managed to capture some screen captures as well.  Smile Hope to see some good photos here soon.
