Boeing 767-300 workhorse in SAS traffic

Flight SK986, a nonstop flight from Tokyo-Narita Intl., coming into final for
runway 26 at Stockholm-Arlanda in April 1992. The Boeing 767-383ER OY-KDK
"Helga Viking" was delivered fresh from the factory in August 1989. The
registration actually doesn't exist anymore, first changing to SE-DOB and
later changing once again to its present reg. LN-RCI, thus being registered
both in Sweden, Denmark and Norway.

Flight SK985, in the opposite direction from Stockholm-Arlanda to Tokyo Narita
climbing out majestically just after rotation from runway 08 in July 1994.
The aircraft is Boeing 767-383ER OY-KDN "Ulf Viking" and was delivered in
September, 1990, as SE-DKS.

A three-photo sequence of SAS 767-383ER LN-RCH "Ingegerd Viking" taking to the
sky in July 1994 bound for John F Kennedy Intl. Airport in New York as flight
SK903. This aircraft was delivered as SE-DKO in March 1989, thus being the
FIRST 767 to enter SAS-service, at the time flying the long-haul routes in
parallel with the classic Douglas DC-10-30, with the SAS Boeing 747 JumboJets
being phased out in 1987.

On a beautiful Summer morning in July 1998, SAS Boeing 767-383ER SE-DOA
"Yrsa Viking" is waiting quietly in the queue prior to departing runway 26
at Stockhol-Arlanda for the 7 hr 45 min fligt to New York. The aircraft has
recently been re-registered LN-RCG.

As particularly evident in this shot of Boeing 767-383ER OY-KDH "Tyra Viking" just about
to line up for runway 26 at Stockholm-Arlanda in the summer of 1998, SAS is now part
of the leading STAR-airline alliance. In addition to the airline-logos painted on the
fuselage of this aircraft, Ansett of Australia, Air New Zealand, All Nippon have now
joined the growing airline-family. Future prospective members include Mexicana and
Singapore Airlines.

A bit of history as SAS Boeing 767-383ER OY-KDN "Ulf Viking"
is taxiing to the gate at Stockholm Arlanda, inbound nonstop from Los Angeles.
The date is july 18th, 1994, and with a very valuable load of soccer-players on
board. Sweden has just finished third in the World Championships in Soccer, after beating
Bulgaria 4-0 in the runners-up game. The SAS-airplane was escorted by Swedish Air Force
"Viggen" fighters upon its arrival in Stockholm. Note the national flag of Sweden visible
from the cockpit-windows

Although not the best of shots, this is a rare sight of one of a few SAS
Boeing 767-283ER SE-DKP operating in the SAS-colours for a couple of years
during the earlier part of the 1990th. Seen here taking of for an Arlanda-
London flight, it also flew the longest leg in the SAS route-network, the
prestigous 13 hr, 10000 km, nonstop fligt between Copenhagen and Singapore.
This route is now flown in co-operation with Singapore Airlines with an
Airbus A340-300E.



PS! My friend Martin Svan is one of those skilled and clever SAS-pilots who operate the workhorse Boeing 767-300. Here, at Arlanda on July
13th 1998, you can see Martin as First Officer taxiing to Rwy26 as SK 903 preparing the take off for another Atlantic crossing to Newark DS
