Does anyone know if there are any MD80/90 still flying with UK airlines, I can't think of any. Pity if not, I love those beauties. Can't beat sitting at the back of the cabin next to those engines and just taking in the roar!

I think British Island Airways was the first airline to
introduce the MD-83 and that by the end of the 1980s.
Airtours started with 5 MD-83 and this was in the early
Concerning Transjet,i think i saw a pic of one of its
MD-83s with a British registration !!!

Infact I remember seeing BIA MD83's in Lisbon around 1989/1990. Before that they used OMAN Air Force Bac 1-11's also at Lisbon, firstly in a all white libery with brown BIA titles. Latter they evoluted to a more standard and neat light brown livery, after that they're absorved by Air UK I think.
