Thread: Ethiopian Airlines fleet

  1. #1

    Default Ethiopian Airlines fleet

    Hey,

    This is the next fleet in line from Africa. Ethiopian Airlines, with undoubtedly one of the most attractive liveries.

    here is some info:

    "Ethiopian Airlines was established in 1946 by the Emperor Haile Sellassie, and TWA which provided technical and managerial support. Regular operations commenced on April 8 1946 with a fleet of 6 ex USAAF DC-3s. Later in 1950, 2 Convair CV-240s entered the fleet. Then in 1958, the first DC-6B arrived on the scene. On January 1 1959 Ethiopian officially became a member of IATA. The first jet services started in 1963 after the delivery of the carrier's first Boeing 720s. The 720s replaced the DC-6Bs on the European routes. In 1964, Ethiopian started a new pilot training school, installed a large IBM computer system, and also established the largest jet overhaul facility in Africa. 707s, 727s, and 737s, joined the fleet in the ensuing years. Today Ethiopian ranks as Africa's supreme air carrier with a safe and reliable service, notwithstanding the 737 Max 8 tragedy, and has a vast route network. The cherry on top was when in 2014, Ethiopian dethroned South African Airways as the "Best African Airline".

    I'm also NOT jealous because you're a great repainter and I'm not. Not at all. And I like what I see again! I have to repaint the kitchen again. The PAD DHC and Manfred's DAK are VERY welcome in my sim! The Tinmouse 737 also!
