Sun May 20, 2001 11:14 am

Hello everyone!

Does any one know what is that aircraft doing there?

Would it come to Australia? I assume this aircraft on it's way to New Zealand made a stop some where in Australia! Would it come to Sydney?

Thanks!

East Line Airlines was operating a number of charter flights for the UN to Christchurch in May. Flight number will be RA86125, if this helps any.

Thanks TG992!

I want to know if this aircraft is going to visit Sydney! If it is, I want to see it big time!

This was at AKL INT last week.
I don't know if it will go to Australia though.

I thought it was kinda weird too, but I guess it's nice to see an IL-86 there.

This aircraft is in Ohakea to pick up New Zealand soldiers and flying them to East Timor for peacekeeping, it was on ONE news last week.
