Photo Comment

This 310 was delivered to Kuwait Airways in September 1983 as 9K-AHA but was seized by Iraq in August 1990 after the invasion. The plane was officially registered to Iraqi Airways as YI-AOC but the registration was never worn and it never entered service. Eventually the frame joined Qatar in January 1994 and is pictured waiting to line up on rw26L for depature back to Doha (DOH). it had later spells with Oasis (F-OHPE) and Heliopolis Airlines (F-WHPH) . It was converted to a freighter after joining FedEx in August 1999 but was withdrawn in January 2016 and is now stored at Victorville (VCV).
