Remarks: Taxiing in after arriving from Jersey. This flight was intended to go into London City, but for operational reasons a pre-planned flight to Southend was conducted instead. A very nice visitor to SEN, the latest addition to the Blue Islands fleet, formerly F-HBSO, the replacement for G-DFRC which was written off at Jersey. Photo taken 15 minutes after sunset.
Remarks: Sad end of a beautiful bird serving a blossoming national airline. Written-off October 11 1999, when a mentally unstable (this is why medically grounded) pilot illegally took off the empty plane, and after two hours of unsuccessful negotiation, he crashed the plane into A2-ABC and A2-AJD, parking empty on the Gaborone Airport ramp.
