1st Astraeus B737 @ EMA Now!

Thu Mar 21, 2002 2:51 am

Hi all,

I read on Pprune a comment by a member (who is apparently very high up in the new airline) that the 1st AEU B737 (either 700 or 300 I'm not sure what this particular plane is) is parked at the momment at East Midlands!

The proving flight is soon, but she's already on display at EMA!

Not so quick Englandair...

The 737 (a -300) is indeed at East Midlands, and has been for a while. It is G-STRA, formerly G-OBMY of British World. It currently has a blue lower fuselage, a white top fuselage, and a blue tail, and a registration... And that's it. No decals, no titles, nothing to mark it out as Astraeus other than the give-away registration.

THose of us in the East Midlands await further developments.

So, as with the bmibaby...it seems I've missed my chance...unless I can drag Dulcie out to EMA with me...but then again...no!

Good luck!

Still in the hangar this afternoon with a plain blue tail along with a BA 737, which must be GB Airways I would think.

Also at EMA the Britannia 757 was in new colours today for those who haven't caught one yet.
