Remarks: Monarch's latest toy arrives having been painted in the airlines new scheme. Personally i really like this new scheme and look forward to seeing it on other types within the fleet. She will become G-OZBW upon entering service with Monarch.
Remarks: The fact that i remember this as if it was yesterday makes me feel quite old now. Taken back when i was 17 and the aircraft was new, little did we all know at the time that SkyEurope wouldnt be around that much longer.
Remarks: Even back then these were not common place, its been a long while since ive last seen a DC-10 and i do miss the old birds. This one had arrived at Manchester on a charter and was by far the highlight of my day, well worth the 8 mile cycle i took to get it.
