OE-LJR, A 328, In BHX Yesterday. Reason?

Sun Nov 23, 2003 7:01 pm

There was a Welcome Air 328 in BHX yesterday, registered OE-LJR. Apparently this carrier undertakes a lot of medical work, evidenced by it parking on the cargo ramp and three ambulances surrounding it. Does anyone have any info. on this? Was it related to the explosions in IST?

It's a weekly scheduled air ambulance service. The flights operate every weekend from Palma, Alicante and from Innsbruck 'Plaster Shuttles' in the winter from skiing accidents. The Med resorts send intensive care patients to a Hospital in Birmingham. Something to do with medical insurance contracts.

Rgds,
