Photo Comment

Bangladesh's national carrier normally used B707s on their flights into Amsterdam, but after a 707 belly-landed at Singapore in April 1980, they were one aircraft short. An Aer Lingus 707 was leased for 6 months, followed by this very nice DC-8, leased from Cargolux in November 1980. It flew into AMS regularly until the summer of 1981.
