White Heather said:I don't know if anyone remembers, but for one summer season, I think in the mid to late 1980's we actually had an Iberia A300 operating IT flights to Palma every week, which was nice to see. Apart from that, I think they have only turned up at LBA when Spain played France in the 1996 European championship match at Elland Road.
There is quite a long list of Spanish Airlines we no longer see, most of which have disappeared now. Apart from Futura, Spanair, Air Europa, there was Hispania, Spantax and more recently LTE. plus I am sure,a few others. Next summer must surely be the first one ever though with no spanish airlines although there is time for things to change again yet.
Me too, in fact I bought a Wooster model of one of their 757's which I still have. I suppose it might be quite sought after amongst collectors now, given that the airline ceased operating around 20 years ago.Aviador said:I flew on Hispania just a few weeks before they went bust. I loved their livery.
I could see the airport apron from my house at that time, and can vividly remember seeing their 757 and 737 parked up after being impounded, and then watching through binoculars, as a guy on an extending platform, spray painted the tail of the 737, covering its livery and painting it plain white, out on the apron!!!
