Some photos that I received from my dad's colleague Gijs van den Bor. I promised that in return I'd plug his (Dutch language only) website so here it is: http://www.gijsvandenbor.nl/ ;) B747 - El Al Cargo - 4X-AXZ Don't let the Avianca livery fool you! This really is an Israeli plane! Note the small armed vehicle next to the #1 engine. http://schipholspotter.com/600400/1984-GijsvandenBor/GijsvandenBor-4xaxz.jpg F27 - DAT - OO-??C If someone could give me a complete identification on this plane I'd be very happy! http://schipholspotter.com/600400/1984-GijsvandenBor/GijsvandenBor-oo--c.jpg DC-10 - Martinair - PH-MBN In 1992 this plane crashed in Faro, regrettably killing 56 out of 340 on board. http://schipholspotter.com/600400/1984-GijsvandenBor/GijsvandenBor-phmbn.jpg http://schipholspotter.com/600400/1984-GijsvandenBor/GijsvandenBor-phmbn-1.jpg http://schipholspotter.com/600400/1984-GijsvandenBor/GijsvandenBor-phmbn-2.jpg http://schipholspotter.com/600400/1984-GijsvandenBor/GijsvandenBor-phmbn-3.jpg DC-9 - KLM - PH-DOI Note that this plane has the name KLM in dark blue on the tail. This was normal back then. http://schipholspotter.com/600400/1984-GijsvandenBor/GijsvandenBor-phdoi.jpg

Oh right, it looks like that Lambo thing that Jeremy clarkson took the p**s out of on topgear when they did a Lambo orientated show. Ive only just found out it automatically censors what you say, no fair! :D

You mean this one: http://www.car.co.nz/4wd.asp?articleid=5215 That car did not reach series production till 1986 so that would be too late for these photos. Besides, noone but the Italian military bought it since it was crap! The only redeeming factor was the cool badge.
