Where Is G-MULL Today?

Thu Nov 30, 2000 11:04 am

A couple of years a go I flew on a British Airways DC-10-30 registered G-MULL (if I remember correctly). The name painted on the nose was New Forest. This aircraft had an interesting history. It was actually struck by a surface to air missile once while serving an Afgahnistan! I was wondering if anyone knew where this airplane is today? Is it still serving with British Air, or on that note, is BA still operating DC-10s? I haven't been able to find this out. If anyone knows, they are welcome to e-mail a response to chadwrench1@hotmail.com
Thanks, Chad

You're right - it was indeed an ex Ariana Afghan aircraft, acquired by British Caledonian in the early 1980s. BA has retured all of the DC10s, and I believe G-MULL is one of the aircraft converted to freighters at Aeronavali. I have a suspicion it's operated either by Das Air of Uganda or Cargolion of Luxembourg - I'll check.

Yes, and I have had a flight on this one also from LGW-ATL in 96. I have also been on her sister ships, G-DCIO and G-BEBM
