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...

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.

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!

Excellent website - the movies are top notch and the photos as well. Well done!

Once you have tasted flight, you will walk the earth with your eyes turned forever skyward

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!
