This 757 (EZ-A0112) came to EGGW for routine maintenance on 1st May 03. It was only supposed to take 2 weeks. However, when it arrived it was found to be in a poor state of repair and the maintenance work is going to take longer than expected..
The top of the tail and port engine were removed as part of this maintenance. No work seems to have been carried out on this aircraft since May (I've seen it many times on my flights to/from EGGW). Early on during its stay, EZ
-A011 also visited EGGW (3rd-5th May), during which it underwent an engine change, maybe this was taken from EZ
Monarch, who were carring out the maintenance, only have limited hanger space, so the aircraft gets towed around and parked whenever space is needed, otherwise its parked in Hanger 60. Monarch also carry out maintenance for CO
757's at a rate of about 1 per month, N12116 is there at present.
