What Airline Is This?

Wed Feb 21, 2007 4:20 am

At first I thought it was a Varig MD-11, but now I have my doubts.

Big version: Width: 471 Height: 353 File size: 119kb


The picture was taken on September 20, 2006, from the ground between VIT an BIO, exactly here. The airplane is going northbound, and as you can see it was not flying very high. It's in the path planes usually take out of VIT. Planes landing at BIO also fly in this area at that altitude, but I don't think this is the case. What can it be?

I think it's Gemini Cargo.
Correct me if I´m wrong.

That is not LH.

It's an MD-11 Gemini Air Cargo.

That's it, thanks! Vitoria airport's main business is cargo, so it makes sense

Sabena never painted their leased MD-11s in their updated scheme.
