Air Annobon

Post by Grass73 » Sun Mar 02, 2014 6:58 pm

The latest RJ-85 to leave the Cityjet fleet, EI-RJS is scheduled to be delivered to Air Annobon of Equatorial Guinee, where it will take up the registration 3C-MAA. The aircraft was painted in Shannon and then positioned up to Dublin and Thursday.

This is one hell of a catch. I didn't even realise Equatorial Guinea had a registration, let alone an airline!

Shame about the steps but a good photo all the same

Cheers Andy and Dave,

I missed her when she positioned up from Shannon so was lucky to catch her on the ramp. Given the subject matter, I can just about live with those steps...

Not wishing to gloat but this is my second Equatorial Guinee aircraft - got the government An-32 in Sharjah back in 2000, it was on maintenance so lots of ground clutter around her too.
