Local spotters were out in force for the rare opportunity to catch this beauty in action. Built in 1997 for the Sultanate of Brunei, but not delivered, it spent ten years in storage before being purchased by the Saudi's in 2007. It was painted in Saudi Arabian Airline colors, but outfitted like a royal palace on the inside. It was flown to Cleveland from Washington DC/Dulles to avoid the wrath of Hurricane Irene.

So nice to see her again after quite some time. She was stored at my home airport HAM for several years.

Imagine how stunning this A340 would be in old Saudia colors! This current sand/blue tail scheme is just so "blah"
