Just pulled out of air livery paint-shop in the new Iberia Scheme. First A340-600 in this scheme.
Rolling along runway 23R.
Taxiing from stand and returning to Germany after maintenance.
Parked up over night on a remote stand.

Later that same year G-MONR would retire from the Monarch fleet at head to the USA for scrapping. After serving with Monarch her entire 24 year career this aircraft will meet its fate at Tupelo.
Back then non of us knew of the impending doom of Bmi mainline. Nowadays we will just have to settle for this livery on these little Embraer's.
The oldest Ryanair in the fleet that until this day I had never seen. Seen here departing Manchester.
