MK Airlines?

Can anyone give me more details about this airline - I have seen one of their B74F's in Macau.

I don't mean Air Mauritius!!

They are an airline that flies DC8Fs and 747-200s. They recently crashed one in Africa and got a replacement, but all silver except for the tail and titles.

Did you see a silver one or a full coloured one?

It was a full-coloured one - parked outside the cargo shed at MFM.

Does anyone know where they fly to/from, or are they an aircraft lessor?

I believe they are based at Manston in England, with the aircraft registered in Ghana.

I think they are 'based' at Gatwick. However, they are owned by a Zimbabwean (Mike Kruger - hence MK) and the aircraft are registered in Ghana. In the UK they fly mainly, though not exclusively in and out of Manston. They don't have an enviable safety record, having lost a number of planes in the last ten years. I think some of their DC8's will fall foul of the EU Chapter 2 legislation later this month. Does anyone know which of their aircraft will no longer be able to fly in this country ?
