I always enjoy looking at older pics....
When it comes to aviation i think we'd agree on everything (just glad we don't have to discuss politics anymore)...

Re: Did you know ???

Pretty rare shot, Air France 747-300...not many know possibly that AF flew all the classic 747's, apart from 747SP.
Shortly before UTA was absorbed in Air France UTA did in fact fly the 747SP, if you would like to count that in...

Stunning livery, Location and aircraft.


I love digging through old pictures and always keep praising the photographers they left us so much from a past era Thank you guys !

Re: Did you know ???

It has been ages, but still love watching old pictures and come across things I know, some things I didnt know...but in any case, known or not.

Always a nice blast from the past....

Re: Did you know ???

Did you know Lufthansa had an Indian sister airline named ModiLuft? It operated 737s and a cargo 727 (for Hunduja Cargo) in a livery similar to LH https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ModiLuft

Re: Did you know ???

Altair has been an Italian airline and even me, living in Italy, did not know about it.
The airline operated Caravelle 10B-3 I-GISI from 1967 to 1984.
(Altair Airlines has also been a USA airline based at Philadelphia).

Re: Did you know ???

Carnival Corporation & Plc is a USA cruise group and the main brand is Carnival Cruise Line.
Carnival has about 25 cruise ships, well recognizable by their characteristic funnel (red, white and blue with the two lateral wings).
This is one of the latest ships, Carnival Panorama



But not everyone knows that from 1988 to 1998, for ten years, Carnival Cruise Line had its own airline, Carnival Airlines.
With hubs in Miami and Ft. Lauderdale operated scheduled and charter flights with loads of holidaymakers of the various cruise ships.
A300B4, B737-200 and B727-200 in fleet.
