This Canadian 767-300 wearing the "Proud Wings" colours, had diverted to MAN from London Heathrow due to a major ATC failure at West Drayton.
Old classic at MAN operating a sub charter.
I flew on this aircraft from Hong Kong to Seoul later that year so it was nice to capture her in the old Cathay colours.
Delta used to send MD11's on the daily service to Atlanta instead of the now relatively boring 767-300's.
Pushed back from pier C for departure back to AMS.No terminal 2 in the background just cows in a field !!
How close to a Bird Strike???
One of the best colour schemes on a DC-10.
I flew on this Concorde a year earlier from Paris CDG to MAN.The aircraft is seen departing runway 24 back to CDG.
Operating a charter from Prague.Note the stored HS748's in the background.
On final for runway 24 wearing British Asia Airways titles and Chelsea Rose tail.
First picture of this aircraft on the database.JAT used to operate DC-9's and 727's into MAN (also the odd 707!!)
