Default Recent Lufthansa at KAID

I'm heavy into Lufthansa, and here are a few models that might have been spotted at Washington Dulles.
(1.) A repeat of a recent posting, but maybe more accurate as to scale - Dragon Wings 55505 B 747-400 Star Alliance D-ABTH.
(2.) Phoenix PHD-ABYA B 747-8i.
(3.) Sky Wings/Panda Models A330-300 D-AIKC.
(4.) Phoenix PHHDL966 A340-313X Star Alliance D-AIGC. and lastly,
(5.) AeroClassics ACN867F Overseas National Airways DC-8-61F N867F. My wife and I rode this Atlantic Fellowship charter on our honeymoon, Washington Dulles to Frankfurt, summer 1969, 50 great years.

Keep 'em flying, Doug

Great photos. Worked for ONA in the early 70s. Never flew on any though.

Thanks for the kind comments, all. Never mind that I got the code name of the airport screwed up in the title line... And isn't the attached image sad - 20 years and they turn you out to pasture... (Photo from JETPHOTOS.NET, Carlos Barcelo) Doug

That is really sad. Is it really no longer air worthy after 20 years? Or is it just that no airline wants to fly 4-engined airliners anymore?

KAID, lol...... had me wondering why Lufthansa would be there. I bought my aircraft from a broker at KAID a few years ago. Nice pictures nonetheless, the Star Alliance A340 used to be a regular visitor to PHL.

These are the quoted comments on this photo from JETPHOTOS.NET:

"Airbus A340-311 D-AIGC ex Lufthansa LN 27
A Star A343 once flying for Lufthansa. This is the second frame Lufthansa retired and sent to TUP (Tupelo Regional Airport) for scrapping but the only one to wear the Star Alliance livery back then. After that a number of A340-300 aircraft were repainted in SA livery and are used in leisure destinations. Early built frame that once passed the 20 year mark became unprofitable requiring major maintenance checks. Photo from May 2014."

SAS (Scandinavian Airlines) sent 3x A343 for scrap last week. LN-RKF, LN-RKG and OY-KBC. All with around 18 years of duty. Seems difficult to even sell an old A343 these days.

A question Steinar, do you know if SAS would schedule to replace them with new wide body airliners?

Hi.

SAS have received two (out of five I think) new A350-900. SE-RSA and SE-RSB. Awaiting the SE-RSA (AV400) to arrive soon.
