Egypt forever will capture my heart as I am half Lebanese half Egyptian. When I was 6-8 years old I used to visit Cairo on MEA old B707/B720s. This year I had visited Cairo to spend the eastern vacation and now it is time to fly back to Beirut as my vacation had ended. The following pictures covers Cairo city:
Our plane to Beirut will be MEA's A321-231 (OD-RMJ) received by MEA in late 2003. We arrived at the airport 2 hours before departure and checked-in quickly, then we headed to the VIP lounge at Cairo which provides a wide view of the tarmac. Most of the pictures I had snapped covers MASRIA Airbus fleet, Royal Jordanian, Saudia…
Then the Cedar Lady arrived and started posing in the sun like an elegant lady
We were transferred to the plane by bus and immediately taxing procedures started. During taxining to the Runway I was able to snap some old Egypt Air A340 left for scrap in addition to a view of the terminal. Take-off was smooth from runway 5L, and we had a good view of old Cairo.
Soon after reaching our cruise attitude of 32,000 feet, we were offered snacks as the whole flight duration is 55 minutes…
Soon we started our (Top of Descent) and we approached Beirut. I captured the whole approach process of these old IFE screens.
Again an impressive MEA flight
