Photo Comment

Tristar Air and Jet Link Holland were airline subsidiaries of the Dutch company Jet Link, and both shared the same logo. Jet Link Holland went bankrupt in June 2000, but Tristar Air continued. The aircraft seen here only carries the company logo on the fin, and no titles, but in later years it adopted the full colour scheme previously worn by the Jet Link Holland aircraft. This particular aircraft SU-BMZ was destroyed in a forced landing near Mogadishu, Somalia on 12 Oct 2015. At that time the A300 was 34 years old and still operated by Tristar Air as their only aircraft. The accident meant the end of Tristar Air.
