Air Koryo In Islamabad - Pic

Sun Oct 09, 2011 12:55 am

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?

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?
