New Monarch Colours - First Service

Fri Mar 15, 2002 6:49 pm

For those of you who don't read the other forums, Monarch's new livery is about to be seen for the first time.

http://www.monarch-airlines.com/brand.asp

According to ananova, the first trip for the new colours will be a MAN-TFS service next Friday, 22nd March - I might just make the effort, camera in hand, if the weather looks like being nice.

Hi Andy

Looks pretty good and proves that Britain leads the way in new and innovative liveries Big grin

Now, BA, get back to the Speedbird.

As far as I know the first aircraft that is planned to be painted in the new livery is a new Airbus A321 (c/n 1707; G-OZBE). This aircraft is currently being painted in the paintshop at XFW and scheduled for delivery in early April, so I doubt that it will operate this flight.

Does anybody know about a Monarch aircraft that is currently being repainted?

Well, this time XFW gets it. This plane has to fly to MAN first and therefore the spotter here at Hamburg have the first chance to shoot it (unless it is unpainted and gets painted at MAN which is very unlikely).

It is now confirmed that G-OZBE will be delivered to MAN on Thursday or Friday next week, so this plane is definitely the first one in the new Monarch livery.

Anyone know what time the Tenerife flight leaves Manchester?

I may have a run up if its at a reasonable time and looks like fairly nice weather (although this is always doubtful!)

The first aircraft in the new livery is apparently a 757 G-MONE I think which will be at Manchester. G-OZBE is to go to Luton on delivery for post delivery work at the end of the month

Info is third hand so don't shoot the messenger!!

G-MONE sound about right. It's been flying about in all white for a year now.

G-MONE is due back into MAN tonight after dark, and is then meant to do an overnight trip ex MAN, returning to MAN tomorrow morning at 06-something, and then position down to LGW. Its due back in MAN for ops early next week.

Hi,

Thanks to Lee Collins (widebodiedLee on airliners.net) I can display the picture of the first aircraft showing the new Monarch colours.

See http://surf.to/spotter and select the new colour section from the topmenu.

regards,
Marcel

I'm sure it won't be long before somebody photographs it in the sun! Now the next airline for a makeover is apparently Air 2000 and the B757 that is parked at MAN in a hybrid Royal/Canada 3000 scheme is supposed to be the first one and will be G-OOOZ
