Hi all,

I was having a bit of a clear out, and found an old "flight check" - the schedule of MAN airport.

Its dated May 1990.

The airlines and aircraft types of both scheduled and charter carriers are so, so diffierent from that of today. Hardly recognisible......

What do you all think? What are your memories of the airlines and aircraft of the early 90's?

Below is an example - Saturday 26th May 1990:

A0005 DUBLIN EI9216 73F

Ah... glory days. Remember being on the old terraces and changing positions to get up on the roof to see what was around the back. Spotting was great in those days... maybe not the destinations that we may always see now, but there was some variety. When I started going there were Caravelle's, SH-330's and 360's, HS748's, introduction of the ATP and Bae 146... now none of these may have been the A380 but as a kid I was wide eyed to see the 747's and Tristars up close along the piers. I think the variety of companies helped as well, Orion, Monarch, Britannia, Loganair, Manx, BA, Air France, TAP and quite a few others as well such as JAT and Aeroflot. Good days  Smile

Some observations of mine whilst typing the movements in:

How strong were Dan-air ? Both in Charter and scheduled flights.

Out of all of those movements, only 3 were Airbus.

Yugoslavia was a very strong market ex-UK.

BA - when the B stood for British..... not just London.

The versatility of the Boeing 757 - Short haul, Long Haul, Shuttle, Charter and Scheduled.

The difference in Noise levels - For me, a bad thing. But I dont live on a flightpath !

That alone is quite a statement, although I counted four (Swissair had an A310).

Nostaglia - I remember the steady stream of BAC 1-11s, 727s, occasional L-1011 heavies and other classic airlines from Manchester (the Caravelle would have been long gone by 1990... not sure when the last scheduled Caravelle flights were to MAN but my guess is mid-1980s).

Nte all the Balkan 154 fligh plus the Tarom charters.

Indeed 80% of the planes mentioned are withdrawn and replaced in the almost 20 years between 1990 and now. But of course comparing 1970 to 1990 would give the same huge differences. In 1970 there would still be passenger flights with DC-3s, DC-4s, Britannia's, Comets, Tridents, maybe even a Viking or a last Ambassador of Dan-Air. The Trident, 1-11 and Viscount would be the most dominating passenger aircraft in England then, in 1990 they were rare already.

ABR502 VGF would have been be an Air Bridge Carriers V.952 Vanguard (Merchantman).

Also very interesting the level of Freight flights around Europe Domestic and the Emery Air freight Dc8, Also note the SABENA B737 flight being a Combi flight along with the Singapore B743 also being a Combi.

Nice number of Yugotours charters with Inex Adria. JAT (Air Yugoslavia -JR code)
Aviogenex, before the region blighted by the ethnic conflicts,and Balkan Holidays -Balkan and Tarom.

Most of these tourist were the very price conscious and are today probably going to Hisoronu, Bodrum or Orlando (with family) I suppose.

The BA Nice flight at that time only operated on summer Saturdays and used a B757 that arrived on the Friday evening shuttle.

Last regular AF Caravelle services were around 1987 after which the B727 took over and an extra M-F F28 (TAT) operated around lunch time.

Bewley747 - Dan-Air were largely a Charter carrier out of Manchester selling their services to the myriad independent and small IT tour companies that then existed.
On the scheduled side at various times they operated international schedules from Manchester to Zurich, Marseilles, Amsterdam, Bergen and Stavanger (via NCL) Heathrow Gatwick and Inverness, and a Series of cross country services
connecting Newcastle/Teeside/Cardiff/Bristol and Bournemouth.

Run by Metropolitan using Twin Otters from 1983 to 1985/6 in DA colours, having been HS748s (plus a Nord 262 in the early 70s with a scheduled 5 minute turn round!)

Oh yeah that Nord 262 my dad flew to Newcastle on it once when I was knee high to a grasshoper, somewhere back in My Mothers loft theres a Kodak Instamatic picture of it.
One day i'll find it.

The only photo on the data base is at another airport a little to the West it seems

This reminds me that at one point EI used to route a number of European flights via MAN. If I remember correctly CPH, AMS and ZRH were served via MAN. Im not sure what others.

IIRC CPH was the final one to finish as a DUB-MAN-CPH-MAN-DUB routing around 1994(?). SAS used a similar routing at the time.

They sure did. My first flight ever was around 1989 or so, CPH-MAN-DUB. One of my earliest memories all categories is having my face plastered against the window of the SK DC-9 at MAN.

HAM for a while, MXP (though they had to go to court for traffc rights), AMS = 3 daily weekday, as was CDG. Don't ask me what they did up to 1978 when some airline or other (have a guess) persuaded the UK government to withdraw permission for them to operate ex-MAN. Part of the marketing at the time was "Manchester's our second home".

Other European airlines who offered up a xxx-MAN-DUB-MAN-xxx service include AZ, TP and LG in the 1980s/1990s. Think KL offered up that routing back in the 1940s/1950s.

Back in the 1990s? N794AL/N795AL I think were the birds flown. Having rationalised all non-essentinal books, I'm trying to remember registrations as well as timeframes. The only other DC8s that we saw around hat decade were the Emery as outlined above and the Aer Turas DC8s (which were sometime UPS? operated).

Quoting Myt332 (Reply 21):
See I flew on Dan Air in September 1992 from Athens to Manchester but I've no clue what I actually flew on. I don't suppose you have a Flight Check from then as well do you? I'd love to know what the heck I was on. I know I flew out on an Excalibur A320...

I have just had a look in the Flightcheck for SEP 92,

And Whilst looking for the above DA and EXC flights, I noticed some interesting Caravelle movements for Sep 1992:

Air Toulouse Operated a couple of flights every Sunday afternoon, from NCE and onward upto EDI. Anyone know what the purpose of these flights were? IT charter?


25 YVRLTN : Who is this, Guernsey Airlines? Assume VC8 is a Viscount 800 srs, so operator would be BAF - whats the story behind Hot Air?
26 David_itl : Business Air, used "Granite" as their callsign and were based in ABZ. They used II a code. LH got tied up with them - they acquired a BAe146 G-GNTZ a
27 Post contains images Jetjack74 : a few pics I took at MAN in 1990. Britannia 737 to Malta with Caledonian TriStars at the old Terminal. An old line of tails mostly gone and AT TriStar
28 David_itl : being a numpty, i forgot to add that this would have been a mail flight.
29 Flyingfox27 : Its very to see these, only wish we could go back in time with our latest cameras and get really good shots! I heard one spotter saying that aviation
30 Bewley747 : Nice.... Do you have any more....? Would love to see them. The Tristars lined up on B Pier in Terminal 1.... beats endless a320's that are lined up t
31 Post contains links and images BlueShamu330s : One or two 80s and 90s shots for you. I've got hundreds of prints, but my scanner has gone on strike - must be a member of the CWU
32 Flyingfox27 : I Think my first ever visit to Manchester was when they had the old AVP (where runway 2 is now) i remember seeing a BA 747-200 taking off, was this a
33 Bewley747 : After moaning about B Pier, I have to admit that MAN have always looked after spotters, photographers and familes visiting the airport. Much better f
34 Rutankrd : BA wide body schedule routes over time ex Manchester. Schedules B747 included Montreal, Toronto, New York -JFK, Orlando, Barbados, Islamabad, Delhi, B
35 David_itl : That Air Manchester pic would be dated from 3rd June 1982 to 1st September 1982 as that was the brief period they operated from MAN; they hopped to LP
36 Jsnww81 : Great old pictures! My parents lived in Blackpool for three years (2001-2004) and MAN was always where I flew to visit them. Even back in 2001 things
37 BlueShamu330s : An airside driving permit Simples
38 Bewley747 : I think that statement isnt quite as true as it used to be. MAN is not quite as bad as people make out, but it does have some major faults these days
39 Jetjack74 : I'm not sure if I have anymore for that year, at least one that are woth a look, but I do have some from the mid to late 90's probably.
