There are a number of images online, showing a couple of 707s with the Buffalo Aiways name on their fuselage.
At least one of them having previously belonged to Heavy Lift. I can only assume that these were on some sort of short term lease ? (Circa 1991)

Does anyone have any more info on these please ?

Well both airlines were associated with the businessman Farhad Azima at that time.

Like you suggested a short lease for a certain contract, but due to the telly programme sucess who knows?

A pity you haven't had a reply, publictiy is good, depends on the company.

That said I wonder how many emails they get after the telly programmes?

I would have look at emails that that could generate income for the business rather than general questions if I was them.

They are running a business after all so hang in there:)

Thanks for that, I did wonder myself if there were two airlines with the same name.
Although one of the 707 pictures, did appear to have the"buffalo" logo on the tail.

That would certainly answer some questions though.

I believe the 707s in question (along with a multitude of other aircraft), may have been involved with flying
"certain" items into a "certain" African country ? I seem to remember a TV documentary on the subject
a few years a go.
