Which Aircrafts Are Currently Std At SNN?

Sun Aug 17, 2003 7:54 pm

Hi all,

I would like to get some tie ups from aircrafts currently in storage at SNN.

x B707 a/w

x IB B727

x 2 SK a/w are LN-RCE and LN-RCM?

x 2 B737's a/w, I assume ex-BA

x Air Congo B732

x The MD80 besides the Air Congo (I believe a/w in the front, and a blue tail)

x MD80 in the hangar

x SK B763 in full old colours in the hangar.

All the above were seen on Wednesday 16 July 2003.

Thanks for your help!

Regards
Frederic

When I have been to SNN last year, there was a Dinar MD-80 parked next to the Air Congo. I have no idea if this Dinar MD-80 is still there, but did the MD-80 look like this?

Thanks Alex, the tail was exactly the same but I think that the titles were removed (as far as I remember).

Anybody has any idea with the others?

Cheers

Yesterday, the ex-Dinar MD-80 was still sitting next to the Lina Congo B732. An ex-SK MD80 is also near by. There were two all white B763 parked, too. Just spotted this on a brief stop while en-route ORK-SNN-ZRH.

Hi Unique, where did you see the SK MD80? In the hangar?

Was it in full c/s?

Thanks
Frederic

Some infos I found in my old emails of the irish-spotters-group:

EL-AKL B-707, all white, stored
LV-WTY MD-80 of Dinar, stored
TN-AEE Lina Congo, stored
EC-CFA B-727 Iberia, stored

Some long-term residents here... They've all been there when I passed through last August, The DINAR was already without titles back then...
