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

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.
