Cockpit visit Lufthansa DC10-30

Post by Zulfiqar »

Few photos I found of my visit to the cockpit of a Lufthansa DC10-30 flying Bangkok - Karachi route in 1979.
Bit blurry, sorry!

^ Rare photos - thank you for sharing.

I've moved topic from 'World Aviation Photos Forum' to 'PIA & Pakistan Aviation Photos Forum' as it's a flight to Pakistan.

Related photo.

In the summer of 1979 my family and I also used Lufthansa to return from Hong Kong to Karachi.

The flight was Hong Kong-Bangkok-Karachi-Athens-Frankfurt.

The aircraft was DC-10-30.

I was supposed to fly with LH from Tokyo. (NRT-HKG_BKK-KHI). However due to on-going problems with DC10's those days, I was sent to HKG on Pan Am (747-SP), then to BKK with BA (747-200), overnight in BKK (yes 'one night in bangkok') where I caught the flight to KHI. Even on the outbound flight LH had reboooked me on PIA (747-200 (KHI-BKK-MAN-NRT). It was a very exiciting journey.
