Braathens F28 Fellowship LN-SUN, 1982
Braathens SAFE's B737-205 LN-SUA was their main workhorse for many years.
Fred. Olsen ceased flying in 1998. Here's Lockheed Electra LN-FOI awaiting sale.
Gardermoen was closed in the summer of 1989 for runway repairs and the traffic was transferred to a temporary charter terminal at Fornebu North. On one occasion Tower Air operated 2 B747-100's at the same time. Due to FBU's short runway (2200m), the 747's were not able to operate with full payload. Also Cargolux operated a 747 to FBU in this period.
This DC10-30 from JAL flew the Japanese Prime Minister to Oslo in 1985
Busy Bee flew F-27 Friendships to FBU for many years, This is LN-NPM.
SAS experimented with a bare metal texture on one DC9-41 in the early eighties. I beleive it was OY-KGG.
