B747-200 Olympic Airways “Olympic Zeus”

Scale 1/50

As the movie says ¨You should be proud to be Greek. Needless to say how important is this model to me. Olympic had a long history of rise/triumph and tragedy as all Greek drama. Olympic was one of the 1st European airlines to order the Queen of the Skies, with two sisters of B747-284. Olympic Zeus (SX-OAA) and Olympic Eagle (SX-OAB). Under the ownership of Greek magnate Aristoteles Onassis, with his lover Maria Callas, before the airline was nationalized by the Greek state, flew and spread the long haul expansion of OA to fantastic routes as New York, Chicago, Boston, Toronto, Montreal, Tokyo, Bangkok and as far as exotic Melbourne and Sydney, where all Greek diaspora headed. What a times. OPAAA!!!!!! This model SX-OAA, received by the Greek shipping magnate, guess the registration OAA???? There you are: Onassis Aristoteles Olympic enhances the collection and give proud of the Greek legacy.
