LAD-VHC, B727 (S9-PAC)

One of my deepest flight experiences…
It was a domestic flight inside Angola, onboard a Boeing 727, registered S9-PAC.
Our departure was from Luanda (LAD) and the flight ended in Saurimo (VHC).
Here's the full report
(sorry for the poor quality but the windows weren't so clean as I would like…)

For sure, unforgettable! :)

This time I guess it's the Mussulo Island, not sure…

Inflight drink: orange juice.

Cabin view from 18A, the 4th row after the business. On the front of the aircraft there's the cargo bulk zone (empty during this flight!)

Ups… Tarmac missing?!


Ups… another one?

War memories

ATC facilities

And one of the hardest shots during this trip…
