This is the aircraft most people would call "The Salmonplane", or "Lakseflyet" in Norwegian. Aeroflot flew fresh salmon from Værnes to Japan via Moscow twice a week until 2002. Now the fish is transported to Oslo and then flown by Aeroflot's DC-10F to Japan. I really miss this incredible aircraft, which had a few interesting incidents at this airport during the years it operatedout from here. One night it smashed the LLZ-antennas when coming in far to low on approach!
