Kind Of Different TR: Taxiing Through CAI Corrosio

Sun Mar 06, 2011 9:48 pm

After my first kind of different trip report Kind Of Different Trip Report: Walachia (by N14AZ Mar 8 2010 in Trip Reports) I wanted to share the pictures I recently made in Cairo.
I am regularly travelling to Egypt but this time the Spotter-God was kind to me and we taxied from the Southern runway all the way back to the terminal through CAI’s corrosion corner. So here we go:

Centrafrique Air Express Boeing 727-223Adv., TL-ADY


Pharaoh Airlines Boeing 737-222, SU-PMA


Alim Air Lines Ilyushin Il-62M, SU-ZDA – this is by the way a former Interflug and a former Luftwaffer IL 62. Note the registration is bigger than the airline titles on the fuselage…


This Jurassic B 737 is hiding behind a hill. This is most probably B 737-266, SU-AYK of AMC Airlines.


Phuket Airlines opf. Saudi Arabian Airlines Boeing 747-306M, HS-VAC, which has been damaged during a RTO last year.


Air Memphis DC-9-31, SU-PBO


Midwest Airlines A 310-304, SU-MWA


and from the other side


Brisair DC 8-62, VP-BHM


I hope I was able to give an impression of this corrosion corner in Cairo and you don't mind this kind of different trip report.

Best regards
N14AZ

Air Memphis DC-9-31, SU-PBO

Thank you for the pictures. The DC-9 looks operational, right?

Yes, that's true. She actually doesn't belong to the corrosion corner, although she is even older (FF 12-12-1979) than the Midwest A 310 (FF 27-05-1992) next to her.
