A special flight of a rare McDonnell Douglas DC-10-30 model to Brazil is scheduled for Wednesday October 21st. The operation was approved yesterday and added to the database of the National Civil Aviation Authority (ANAC) (20).
According to ANAC, the operation is being carried out by the state-owned company Transportes Aéreos Bolivianos (TAB) on the route between Santa Cruz de La Sierra and Manaus in the Amazon. It will be a on-time cargo flight with an estimated time of arrival in the Amazon capital at 12:00 noon. The game is scheduled for 7:00 p.m. today.
The jet in question is 33 years old and has been with TAB since 2013, having previously flown with Federal Express for 25 years.
It will be a rare opportunity for Brazil to review an aircraft of this model as there are few aircraft in the world these days and it is an increasingly unusual sight here. In the past, however, this was not the case, as in addition to the many international companies, other Brazilian companies also operated the jet, including Varig, Vasp, Transair, MTA.
According to its website, TAB is forty years old and provides air transport services for domestic and international cargo to promote national integration and sovereignty in Bolivia. It fills a void in the country, conducts international trade operations that contribute to both import and export, and transports various types of cargo such as perishable cargo, equipment and machinery for oil, live animals, dangerous goods, bulky and large cargo as well as the Maintaining routes to Lima, Caracas, Miami and charter flights to all parts of the region.
