Thanks for that picture, Peter!

Now I know, what I missed the last few weeks at ZRH  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Oh my God that picture is hilarious! It'd only be slightly more amusing to see it flying over the Alps!

south west should expand it network and fly Manchester-ZRH with the 737-700 hey why not??? (don't care about all the taxes and stuff but usa and switzerland do have an open skies agreement)

737-200s don't die, they just get recycled through Zurich. Though, I am surprised to see a non-Stage III aircraft without hush kits in western Europe.

it is an eastern european airline though.
I don't quite agree with you 737-200 recycling idea. You don't see many at ZRH these days. You see a lot more at say FRA.

It is very difficult to tell if it is a Stage III aircraft or not.....The Nordam low gross weight kit extends the cowling only about four inches around the "do not enter" stripe.
This plane is built to withstand anything... except a bad pilot.

Cool picture, one thought.... I have never seen sprinkers on an airport like that, I guess they like to keep their grass green!

Air Slovakia has leased this former Southwest B737-200 for three years to serve Tel Aviv, Larnarca and Kuwait.
