Pilot with impressive route on the aircraft's last tour ever

With approximately 50.000 flights in the luggage is the Boeing 737-600 retired after 20 years of faithful service.

Captain Rolf Liland stood for the flight, when the plane for the last time ever moving out on his SAS route between Stockholm and Oslo on Saturday.

A route which in today's occasion was a little different than it used to be. And a little longer, writes NRK.

instead of flying direct between the two capitals put the captain headed for Denmark, before he turned flysnuden against Oslo.

And on the way thereto, he gave a small demonstration - in each case, to those who follow on flyradarer - between Skagen and Göteborg.

He left: a radar tracks that looked like the figure of 600. 600, which also is the last number in the aircraft's name.

Fortunately, the passengers are not in a hurry to move forward. They were all flyentusiaster, which had welcomed the.

"We got many rounds of applause undervej. The passengers would not leave the plane after landing. Everyone took us in hand for the trip," says Rolf Liland Norwegian, NRK.

the Aircraft was launched in 1995 after a request from the SAS.

And it has been appreciated, says the captain, who describes the plane which is both easy to fly and sturdy built.

the Aircraft is in fact among the only one who has never been involved in an accident, writes the Norwegian media.

But now it is over. The Boeing 737-600 will be replaced with a newer model that does not use just as much fuel, sounds it from the SAS.

the Aircraft's last trip was, however, climate-friendly enough. Sas has purchased a quantity of biofuels equal to that which was used and paid for CO2-compensation for all on board, underlines the airline.
