PIA's A310 to go to Leipzig

Post by shj » Tue Nov 22, 2016 8:29 pm

According to a source, PIA's A310 AP-BEQ is going to fly to Malta and then Leipzig on 25th November, 2016 to be parked in a museum. If anyone has exact time of departure, it would be much appreciated as I will try to spot it.

Interesting!

Is it going to fly as AP-BEQ or under registration of some other country?

This also explains why Leipzig is mentioned as the location of AP-BEQ engines offered for sale.

BTW, how did PIA find AP-BEQ buyer? Last day for submission of bids is December 12, 2016, for four airworthy PIA A310s including AP-BEQ offered for sale.

Isn't 250,000 euros a bit low?

a330 rent is somewhere 250,000$ a month.

Hopefully PIA pays off some of its debt.

I assume that PIA has sold the air frame or leased out the plane for the shooting.

As previously advertised earlier, it stated that the engines would be in Germany so the reason of the mention of the engines in Germany, was wondering earlier how did the engines reach Germany soon after being grounded.

Still the price is good. I remember PIA sold one 747 in open auction for around 1,00,000,00 Rs. The company who bought did dismantle the Aircraft and pick the Raw Iron and Aluminum from it.

AP-BEQ due to be ferried from Karachi to Malta International Airport in coming hours.

Goodbye AP-BEQ and thank you for serving PIA for nearly twenty-three (1993-2016) years.
