Zambia Airways fleet

Recommended Posts

Hey all,


The new fleet is Zambia Airways. It had a nice livery and was worth painting.


Some info on the airline:


Zambia Airways was formed as a subsidiary of Central African Airways (CAA) in April 1964. When CAA collapsed in 1967, Zambia Airways became a fully Zambian owned carrier. In 1968, the fleet consisted of DHC2 Beavers, DC-3s, and two newly delivered BAC-111s from the defunct CAA. They flew on regional routes to Kenya, Malawi, Tanzania, and Mauritius. Alitalia was also hired to provide support of the initiation of new international services. A Douglas DC-8-43 leased from Alitalia was used for the long-haul Lusaka to London flights, which were inaugurated in November 1968, via Nairobi and Rome. In 1970 Zambia Airways took delivery of 3 HS-748s, and in 1974 they received their first Boeing liner; the 707-343C. One year later the two BAC-111s were sold to Dan-Air. July 1976 saw the delivery of the carrier's first 737-200. Zambia Airways received their first wide-body DC-10-30 in July 1984. Zambia Airways did well financially over the years, but by the end of the 1980s and early 1990s, things were a bit more complicated. With financial difficulties facing Zambia Airways, it was forced into liquidation in December 1994.

Hi Col,


Thanks very much,enjoy flying them. BTW my name happens to be Ted not Rick:)


As for my high standards, that's one thing I focus on when I try to do the repaints. It's my tribute to all the great classic airlines and airliners of the past that have flown the skies. It would be a great injustice if I just create some run of the mill repaints, some of which I downloaded in the past and quickly discarded them, before I started repainting myself. They were really not up to standard. This is the reason I took up the mantle and do what I'm doing.

Ha Ha sorry Ted, I was reading a post just before yours by Rick and his name stuck in my mind lol.


Not sure if you have seen my repaints, probably not what you might like as I like to do fictional, I have done some real world as well, the reason I like fictional is there are lots and lots of real world so I like to do a change, something that isn't out there.

I put a post on here with a link to my paints have a look.
