I think it was BHX I thought that they flew MAN with either a 764 or a 762 before please correct me if I am wrong...

MAN was a DC-10 (we had that evacuation there with one) and a 777 before downgrading to the 764, 762 and now double daily 752s.

BHX or LIS are my esimated guesses.

According to the photo database it would appear to be EWR-LIS in 1997, followed by GLA in 1998.

i thought it was either BHX or LIS. I remember flying BHX - EWR - BHX on the DC10's. They were always full in Coach, and very empty upfront. Was a nice aircraft though!

Also I remember that Manchester evacuation. It was ship 065.
