Ethiopian Airlines A340-300 F-WHPZ

Sun Aug 03, 2003 4:40 am

I saw a diapositive on auctiontransportation of an Airbus A340-300 F-WHPZ
in Ethiopian Airlines colours. Does anyone know where this photograph was
taken, when and where become of F-WHPZ? Ethiopian Airlines ordered 767-
400 and 737-700 recently.

Anders, the shot was taken at TLS (Airbus factory). It was never delivered to Ethiopian but to Srilankan instead (c/n 36, 4R-ADD). The fate was very unfortunate: blown up by Tamil Tigers terrorists on 24JUL2001 at CMB).

Also, Ethiopian ordered 767-300s, not the -400.

The A340 flew also a few months for Sabena. In replacement of the OO-SCW who had a crashlanding here at BRU. I think it was august '97 or '98.
BRU a small airport in a big world.
