Air Liberia

Continuing on the same theme from the previous post, it seems an appropriate time to post these images of Air Liberia, which I've had around for a few years. The first is the comically-shaped Britten-Norman Islander aircraft. The sunny location, with its mountainous background, is difficult to judge; could be California, could be Yekepa.

The second it the pride of fleet Boeing 737-200, which Air Liberia reportedly used only for Government VIP operations. How typical. The photo's background definitely looks more Kansas City than Kakata, so presumably this was some sort of publicity shot taken by the manufacturer as the plane made its way to West Africa.

Ben Guttery's Encyclopedia of African Airlines gives the historical highlights of shifting priorities and management that kept Air Liberia bouncing along the bottom.
