VH-UQG becomes VH-FGB Alliance Airways logo jet !

Post by keithnewsome » Thu Dec 21, 2017 9:56 pm

It's complicated ... but this ex Austrian Arrows F100, formerly OE-LVC, arrived at Norwich in October 2017 as VH-UQG for some TLC with KLM engineering ... has since been through the spray shop and emerged yesterday evening as VH-FGB an Alliance Airways logo jet celebrating the 90th anniversary of the first trans pacific flight .... A few photos ...
