Photo Comment

Mozambique's presidential aircraft was not a common sight in Europe, so its visit to Rotterdam Airport was very welcome. This aircraft crashed near Nelspruit, South Africa three years later, on 19 October 1986. The aircraft broke up and caught fire, killing 26 of the 36 passengers, including President Machel.
