Hi there - At a time when the Ryanair fleet of B737-200s are a hot topic, I was fortunate to travel on a pair of the old birds between Nottingham East Midlands and Dublin. As opposed to writing a trip report, I've put together a small site containing photos and videos from the trip. You'll find it at -

I noticed those yellow/brown 'leaks' on the engines of one of FR's 732's when I used to occcasionally fly them on the MME-DUB route. I originally flew that route about 4 years ago, and the first FR flight I took was mainly to take what I thought would be my last ride on the 732. I took about a further 4 return trips with them, and also flew MAN-DUB-MAN this time last year too.
There are some even older 737-200s flying in the UK at the moment too - those operated by European Aviation Aircharter are ex-Sabena machines dating back to the mid-1970s. One of these is currently operating for bmibaby out of MAN, and I'm sort of kicking myself that I have not booked a ride on one of these sectors!
