Air Koryo In Islamabad - Pic

Tu-204 was there most likely as an enroute tech stop, last year or so it did the same while going to Doha, the photo is by someone else.

Like the 757 the Tu-204 is such a beautiful plane! What a shame such a bland livery is on it.

Is there a specific reason Islamabad was chosen? Are Air Koryo limited to certain countries for stop overs such as these?

No idea why ISB was chosen, they could have stopped in central or western Chinse cities, Cubana IL62 also visited in 2005 brought in medical team for earthquake see at 1.40 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B9hne0JnJAM&feature=player_embedded

Gien that Air Koryo presumably use their Tu-204-300 on direct flights to Kuwait, could this have been the -100 model that has a lower range?

I was suprised when I have heard about it few months ago. They said that lots of North Koreans work there for business (maybe mine business i think)
