Twenty years ago, on Friday May 2nd 1997, Swissair celebrated the 50th anniversary of the first Geneva-New York transatlantic service. A South African Airways (Historic Flight) Douglas DC-4 was leased during spring and summer of 1997 and is seen arriving in Geneva on May 2nd 1997 about to reenact the epic flight launch. Many airlines nowaydays celebrate anniversaries repainting current airplanes in splendid past liveries, but Swissair went all the way. Somehow Douglas DC-4 ZU-ILI was the Mother of all retros.

Notice to planespotters - especially during the Ebace show. Please avoid at all cost using Point 6 mentionned on our Photopoints page (Nissan garage rooftop). The owner is chasing people away in the most outrageous manner, refusing people to take pictures even if they are guests at the restaurant. Situation is currently escalating with no solution in sight.

- No more Air Baltic Bombardier CS300 planned
