Today at Newcastle Airport
Wednesday 16th April 2003 - By Andy Hutchings

The extremely interesting Bergen series flown by the re-branded Norwegian Air Shuttle 'Norwegian' came to a close this morning, the final flight being operated by the carrier's sole Boeing 737-500 LN-BRU, a significant visitor for a number of reasons.

It was the aircraft's 400th landing at Newcastle Airport this morning, having visited exactly 399 times during its life as a Braathens aeroplane. It had first-visited on 1st April 1992 wearing the first of the 'Somerflyet' colour-schemes that Braathens applied to its aircraft during the '90s, while its last visit had occurred during February 1995. It re-appeared this morning, now adorned with a likeness of Norwegian explorer Thor Heyerdahl on its fin.
