Photographer's Remark

It's good to see oldies like this one taking off at a modern airport, and the wonderful tail colours are a welcome bonus! In early 2005, this aircraft operated several daily cargo flights into Amsterdam for Ethiopian Airlines. Built in 1969, ex N990CF, N816ZA, N8967U. This aircraft served with Silverback Cargo until 2010, when it was withdrawn from use and stored at Kigali, Rwanda. It was still there in Sep 2015, current status unknown.
