Sudan Airways De Havilland Comet 4C G-ASDZ.

De Havilland Comet 4C G-ASDZ first flew on November 5, 1962, and it was initially to have been used by Mexicana as XA-NAD. Instead, Delta Zulu (and Comet 4C ST-AAX, the final Hatfield-build Comet, which had also been destined for Mexicana), was bought by Sudan Airways.
Te airline took delivery of ST-AAW on November 13,1962. ST-AAW was withdrawn from service in October 1973 and stored at Khartoum. On June 2, 1975, Dan Air bought the airliner, now registered G-ASDZ.
Delta Zulu was withdrawn from service in October 1975 and was broken up at Lasham, Hampshire.

And today?

Now it´s done. Thanks.

I like this…going back in history.

I just remembered my time working for PAN AM. I will come back with some stories about this airline…and its beautiful aircraft.

And I´ll post the story of a PAN AM 747-121 then.

Weird looking plane

It was better when new.
