Go Fly Question?

Wed Oct 27, 2004 4:24 pm

Hello all,

I was wondering why was G-IGOX,G-IGOZ and G-OMUC were unpainted - the had nearly 2 years to paint them (I think) ! Were they supposed to stay like this?

If they had gotten over 20 more aircraft (as they were planning) what colours would they have been? Any body know how the (example; "go on line" G-OHAJ) were made????

Any info on old Go would be great - shame they have gone!

The book "Go - An Airline Adventure, by Barbara Cassani with Kenny Kemp" is a very good read and contains lots of information.

The planes may have been unpainted at the request of the leasing company perhaps, I wonder if any of these have been painted in easyJet livery.

What is the book like - Does it have pics of planes? Stuff about the planes? Or just about the busieness side?

Thanks

There aren't pictures of planes in the book, it is the story of the airline and is a very good read.

There is one on ebay

European, I've got the book and it's a great read. It does contain colour photos in the middle pages. The first part is not much about go but once it all starts it's brill.
