G-WWBD Back In MAN For Engine Swap

Thu Mar 13, 2003 1:39 am

If you want to get any pics, its at the storage area (Where it has spent most its life :/). May be a last chance before june to get some photos of it.

What gets me is the fact that SAA have sent it to MAN for the change as bmi would normally send thier 330's to zurich. Seems like a waste of money to me.

Will go back into BMI colours and there will no longer be a SAA painted A330.
