The symbol of Cathay City - “new Niki”, was originally set up to mark our 60th anniversary. It has been our guardian since 2006, welcoming staff as they turn the corner into CX city every morning. To ensure old plane stays strong against the elements, a team of six engineering trainees gave the plane a thorough body check earlier in April, where they detected and preserved the worn off parts tirelessly.

The engineers inspected the fuselage of the plane, paying special attention to signs of corrosion underneath the plane’s floor panels. The team redid the protection paint coating wherever corroded spots were found.

The engineers stood on the wing of the plane to inspect its outer structure, keeping an eye out for obvious signs of damage or irregularity.

During the restoration, the engineers frequently looked to the circa-1973 DC3 manual for guidance. The yellowed manual was taken from the CX technical library.

The staff carefully look at the pilot’s compartment. The cockpit was removed to provide a special display item for the CXperience museum at Cathay City.

Thanks om teryfin dan om asri. Ternyata Cathay Pacific sangat2 care dengan sejarah dari perusahaannya. Sampe2 display di depan HQ mereka pun sangat2 diperhatikan. Begitu ada sambungannya akan langsung saya posting disini. Cheers......
