Airbus Super Transporter At Dubai?

Mon Jan 17, 2005 2:55 pm

Guys,
This morning I happened to see the A300 Super Transporter (F-GSTD/4) parked at Terminal 2 in Dubai.
Does anybody know what's it here for?

That's probably the one that was sent in for tsunami relief efforts. I suppose the An-225 may have been there as well for the same reason.

F-GSTD was on its way back to TLS from SZB (Malaysia). It made a stop in DXB prior to arriving in SZB last Friday afternoon. It offloaded a helicopter, goods and medicine for the tsunami relief efforts in Indonesia. It left SZB yesterday (Sunday).
