F/F 08/06/81 as N19B, this was the 346th DC-10 built but she was the prototype DC-10-15 for hot & high ops. D/D 15/06/81 as N1003L 'AZTECA' to Mexicana. After 12 years with MXA, she was lst Aero Peru until 1997. A complicated period followed as she was re-reg V2-LEX, PP-OOO, N48258, SX-CVH, N301FV, EK-10151 & finally J2-KCG with Buraq Air Transport in 2005. She was finally Wfu in Lima, Peru at Las Palmas Airbase, & was seen here in 2012. Scanned from a Kodachrome 64 slide.

Just a beautiful shot. I worked for MX for 20 years and remember the Golden Aztec years with fond memories.

Thank you Tomassjc. Liveries were so much more interesting in the '70's and '80's.
