SABENA 75th anniversary Avro RJ100 delivered


SABENA took delivery on 1 April of an Avro RJ100 painted in a special color scheme to commemorate the airline’s 75th Anniversary. The special design consists of sixty Sabena “S” symbols in three different sizes and five colors (yellow, red, green, blue, and silver). The special scheme was designed by belgian design agency Archimage and applied at the British Aerospace Regional Aircraft Surface Finishing Center at Woodford. In addition to flying regular services, the RJ100, registered OO-DWD (msn E3324), will also appear at special events marking SABENA’s 75th anniversary. It will retain the special color scheme until January 1999. The delivery of OO-DWD brings SABENA’s BAe 146/Avro RJ fleet to 24, including 14 RJ85s, 4 RJ100s, and 6 BAe 146-200s, all of which are operated on SABENA’s behalf by Delta Air Transport. Five more RJ100s are on order.
