Ryanair B737-200 EMA-DUB-EMA

Fri Dec 03, 2004 6:36 am

Hi there - At a time when the Ryanair fleet of B737-200s are a hot topic, I was fortunate to travel on a pair of the old birds between Nottingham East Midlands and Dublin. As opposed to writing a trip report, I've put together a small site containing photos and videos from the trip. You'll find it at -

A little OTT? Yup, probably! Fraid I have too much time on my hands...

Enjoy!
Adam

Wow, that's one seriously professional website. Have at least five gold stars for that!

I'm impressed! Those videos are so cool! I liked especially the DUB landing video, a very nice condensation, and then the unavoidable parachute reverse - simply great!

Thanks for sharing, Alex.

Heya,

I to had the pleasure of these birds just over a month ago:

I see the yellow streaks on the eines of your flights too, almost a leak. They're a god ride, nice vids and pics,

I noticed those yellow/brown 'leaks' on the engines of one of FR's 732's when I used to occcasionally fly them on the MME-DUB route. I originally flew that route about 4 years ago, and the first FR flight I took was mainly to take what I thought would be my last ride on the 732. I took about a further 4 return trips with them, and also flew MAN-DUB-MAN this time last year too.

There are some even older 737-200s flying in the UK at the moment too - those operated by European Aviation Aircharter are ex-Sabena machines dating back to the mid-1970s. One of these is currently operating for bmibaby out of MAN, and I'm sort of kicking myself that I have not booked a ride on one of these sectors!

I've just booked what I'm sure will be my final 737-200 flights for next month. I'll be flying on the following flights and praying they are still scheduled for the 732!

LG 4981 17JAN MAN-DUB 0745/0835 ER4
FR 602 17JAN DUB-MME 0950/1045 732(?)
FR 603 20JAN MME-DUB 1035/1130 732(?)
EI 212 20JAN DUB-MAN 1225/1320 735

I know it's an unusual way of going home for a few days, but what the hell...

I'm also praying the first flights of each day are on time too - just look at my connecting times!
