Brand Spanking new, the very first Airbus for Bwee, this shot was taken just hours after delivery from the Airbus factory, I had the pleasure of towing it for the first time. But sadly, they didnt stay very long, and they were leased to Air Alfa, it really hurt to see that new paint being sanded off.

If I recall, BWIA leased this aircraft to Air Alfa, due to the operating difficulties to the North American market ,if BWIA had waited and ordered the A321-200 that model would of been more than capable to operate on those routes.

I'm very surprised that this was the very first Airbus plane to be manufactured.
