I flew on the Mandarin Jet in 1962 and again in 1965. I was thrilled by the interior decoration of the aircraft and have the fondest memories of traveling on the Mandarin Jet.

The photo is special because it is the only 880 that CAT operated I believe. More than that the photographer perfectly captures the exotic gold cheat line and exotic dragon.........apparently the interior was even more sumptuous and luxurious.......wish i had flown it i wonder what the in flight service was like?

This airline retained the gold airfoil shape on the fuselage and engines, seen on the original flight test 880's. A unique set of exterior markings.
