Hello,

It seems that the repainting of Suckling Airways fleet of Dornier Do 328s has started. My friend sent me a text when he passed the airport today so thought I would go down to Dundee Airport to get a photo of it in its new colours which I think suit it well. Looks like it had just been painted by the shine. I am glad they are starting to put a livery on their aircraft as the all white livery was beginning to get boring and the CityJet colours were not terribly exciting either. What do you think?

FlyBe Do 328 G-BWWT


This was the best angle I could get unfortunatly

Regards

Lovely livery.

Pardon my ignorance, but what is the connection between CB and BE? I see CB does ACMI leases, why does BE need that?

Well from what I understand Loganair bought over Suckling Airways and Suckling Airways will become the charter arm of Loganair. Seeing as Loganair operates under a FlyBe franchise agreement I suppose thats why it has been painted in FlyBe colours.

A D38 will be based at NWI to operate to MAN and EXT (I believe a DH4 will operate to NQY). I should try to fly one, seeing that I haven't yet done so.

Do you know if all the D38s will be painted in FlyBe livery or just this one that is heading to Norwich? I see that the Dundee - London City flights are still using CityJet and Air France codes.

They are not doing the NWI-SOU anymore due to poor sales, shame as I would have used it.

Ditto! Sounds like a nice day trip from MAN, just got to find some nice fares that coincide with my days off!

Incidentally, RE the livery - but the logo on the tail looks wrong, as if they've forgotten to up-scale the font and have just put it on anyway.

Yes just after the be. of FlyBe. The big white space just seems a bit blank and out of place.

I like it!!! With the FlyBe livery to me I think it kind of looks like a newer model for the Dash-8! Anyway I wish this would turn up at LGW, but hey I know that most likely won't happen as it will be flying out of Norwich, Manchester and Exeter mainly!

It really suits the Flybe livery, and looks better than the boring CityJet scheme. Nice catch

Hope you're successful - it's a great little aircraft. I've always enjoyed the Do328 although it's a bit cramped and not recommended if you're much over average height! For a turboprop it's fast and not too noisy. The last time I flew on one the approach to EDI was so rough that the overhead lockers were bursting open and the lifejackets were falling out from under the seats but the 328 just got on with it and the actual landing was amazingly smooth in the conditions.
