A300B1 prototype taken in 1973?! No! just an A300B4 ex Sempati Air (PK-JIB) repainted on 1st Airbus c/s as A300-B1 s/n 001 was at this time. This aircraft is now part of the future Aviation museum in Toulouse. A nice nostalgic view among brand new A330s!
The aircraft was owned by United Aviation Services Inc., who leased it out to various operators. At the time of this photo it was leased by Caribjet who had in turn sub-leased it to European Airlines (Belgium). It was still in the colours of Dominicana to whom it had been previously leased to. It went on to fly for several more airlines until it was sold to Mahan Air in July 2000 as EP-MHG. Reported as stored circa 2015.
