Remarks: SV121 first flight to MAN on the taxiway after leaving 05R. The flight was delayed around 6 hours, so SV112 from LHR ('KB) covered for the departure back to Saudi Arabia. Greeted by cloudy weather that was just clearing to the east.
Remarks: Scan from Slide. Diverted from LHR due to fog. Seen from the then named Intercontinental pier with great views. The Laker A300 and DC-10 were in storage after the airline went bust. The background on that side of the airport is now dominated by large maintenance hangars and the engine test bay.
Remarks: Scan from Slide. Passing behind AP-BAT, this DC-8 in basic Air Canada Colours carries Air Algerie titles and Eagle Airways tail logo. It was operating an Air Algerie flight. Previously C-FTJU and later N849AX with Airborne Express.
