Mumbai (Bombay) - Chhatrapati Shivaji International (Sahar / Santa Cruz) (BOM / VABB)
India, November 2007
Remark
Photographer
VT-EPW (cn 24159/711) A Blast from the Past! One of two Air India 747-300 Combis, "Shivaji" taxies out on a bright winter morning. These adorable black nosed Jumbos with their trademark blue anti-reflective paint below the cockpit windshield are now withdrawn from the AI fleet and will be sorely missed. I had the privilege of flying on her sister ship, "Narasimha Varman" on a couple of occasions.
