Just saw this photo, no comments, no thread here in CivAv... does anybody have any background on this?

Thanks!

I've always liked that livery, I hope they don't go changing it.

What sort of background were you after? The aircraft itself, what it was doing in Paris etc

Both. It's the first picture of this reg. in the database, yet there is no comment from the photographer about how old it is and what it is doing in Paris.

I agree though. Great livery!

Why have the re-reg'd the 767?

AFAIK the 767 had the president of Iraq on board, for an official visit to France.

Generally, since when Iraqi flies again, why there's only this one photo in the db, the status of Saddam Hussein Airport, if they only fly to Paris... all that stuff. Couldn't find any info in a search!

There is only one photo because it has been re-reg'd, click on the C/N.
