CS-TEB active again

After long term storage at Abu Dhabi due to waiting for some important structural repairs, CS-TEB finally landed today at Lisbon!

A short and successful test-flight was accomplished previously last 12th of April, in Abu Dhabi.

Here is a photo of this beauty after landing in Lisbon under the pouring rain. Welcome home again CS-TEB!

CS-TMX the end has come

Last 10th of April CS-TMX msn 1206 was scrapped for good! After being cannibalized of all its reusable parts, the cutting machines left this once great machine in thousands of pieces.

The last owner of the aircraft was euroAtlantic airways and some of the parts were saved to keep their L-1011 CS-TEB flying.

The last flight of CS-TMX was done in June of 2006 and since then it was stored at LIS airport.
