China Airlines' B-18601

Our May edition of "HNL RareBirds Classic" shows one of the early models of the 737-800. Line number 113 was built for China Airlines, and is registered as B-18601 (c/n 28402, l/n 113). It was delivered to China Airlines in October 1998, and seen above on the Anderson Aviation ramp during its overnight stop at HNL. This was the first of 14 737-809s China Airlines acquired.

B-18601 was transferred to their Mandarin Airlines subsidiary in November 2000 for a five month stint. It continues to fly for China Airlines.

This one of the first delivery flight photos I took.
