Photo Comment

Delivered to CAAC July 31 1987, this A310 was transferred to China Eastern, one of several airlines formed to operate CAAC's domestic routes, in May 1988. Withdrawn and stored at Vancouver in May 1994 until placed with Air Afrique as TU-TAU in December. Next with Royal Aviation as C-GYRD in May 1997 and moved to Canada 3000 when the two merged in January 2001. September 11 was the main cause of the sudden failure of Canada 3000 and the Airbus was stored in Toronto in November. Stored several other places before flown to Cotswold airport in the UK and broken up in October 2003.
