Photographer's Remark

5Y-BAS pictured during its take-off from runway 01L. Only two ASA aircraft ever carried the striking zebra stripes on the upper fuselage, and this is one of them. ASA purchased this beauty from KLM in 1976 (ex PH-DCN), and later sold it to Seychelles International as S7-SIA. It was broken up at Brussels during 1987.
