Recently at Newcastle Airport
Photographic News from Today !
Saturday 29th July 2006

A unique sight this afternoon, the arrival of another MNG Kargo Fokker F-27 making for 'three in a line' on the new 'golf' stands, TC-MBF visiting from/to Bristol where it is presumably based as the stand-by aircraft there, indeed it wore additional STBY titles on the fin, with engineering support for the two weekend-stopping machines, TC-MBE and TC-MBH. The aeroplane had visited Newcastle Airport twice before as Channel Express machine G-BNIZ (although interestingly never before as an Air UK aircraft) during February 2003 and August 2001.
