DC-10 from 1986

Post by Siggi »

Hello,

in 2. February 1986 i went with PIA from Frankfurt to Lahore on a DC-10 to get to Bangkok on the next day (i think it was a PIA 747). From there I started a 6 Month backpacking tour through Asia.
Remebering those times I build the Model of the PIA DC-10 from an Airfix Kit in 1/144.
I paintbrushed the model and made the decals by myself. Unhappily I can´t remember if I got the right registration code of the airplane because i haven´t got a foto of the plane which i travelled.

Regards, Siggi from Germany

Hi

one of my favourites! nice work.

I think the flight would have been FRA-KHI. From KHI to BKK in B747. Or was PIA already flying FRA-LHE then?

Hello,

thanks for your replies. Yes, you are right. Of course it was from Frankfurt to Karachi!

The service was very good. International standard. As i can remember there was served a "western" meal and some kind of spicy chicken with rice. I took the chicken. When i went back from Asia with "Air India" the service was not so good :-)

Regards

Siggi

That's a very very good effort on your part. The Airfix DC-10 is a very good mold and kit and I'm having one made in the 70's delivery colors.
