Photo Comment

Guyana's national airline made two weekly fligths into Miami, using two Tupolev 154s. One was leased from TAROM (YR-TPJ) and operated in TAROM colours, the other was this very nice Tu-154M in full Guyana livery. Today I was lucky, and I was able to capture this rare bird landing on Miami's southern runway. It was sold to Cubana in 1988 as CU-T1276, then became RA-85818 with Omskavia, EP-MAJ with Iran Air Tour, then back to RA-85818. Last noted in 2009, fate unknown.
