I will leave to my good friend from South Yorkshire to confirm but I recall we have also had Thomas Cook A-330 and an Air Macau example which was operating for some tour company. Balkan Holidays also operated an A-330 for one season but I can't recall if it actually visited LBA.

What an invitation from Twev to go down into my South Yorkshire cellar to have a rummage through the mouse nibbled aviation records of the past!

Thomas Cook used Airbus 330-200 G-MDBD to operate TCX86P/86K from Manchester to Bridgetown on 20 November 2009.

Air Macau only visited with an Airbus 321 B-MAQ which operated the back end of a short summer series LXR2771/2 from and to Faro in 2003, but this series was introduced by Air Luxor Airbus 330-300 CS-TMT on 01 June 2003 which visited again a fortnight later.

BH Air Airbus 330-200 LZ-AWA substituted once for the smaller Airbus on the regular summer BGH5569/5570 Bourgas rotation on 12 September 2015.

And finally we had a Skyservice Airbus 330-300 C-FBUS which was based for three days in 2001 as a substitute for the Airtours Boeing 757-200, its first visit occurring on 19 March 2001 as AIH321P/321 from Manchester to Las Palmas.

Time to climb out of the basement.

Today's offering is a selection of British Midland types to have graced LBA between 1980 and their disappearance. If only they were around today! I have not included the BAC1-11 G-WLAD as this was posted previously, nor the more recent A319, A320, E135 or E145. Sadly I have not yet scanned photos of the British Midland F70, Shorts 360 or Saab 340 either.

Have seen this before but thought it worthy of a showing here on the nostalgia thread

Maybe they would have been better showing this instead of that terrible TV series recently :)
Wow amigos para siempre playing in the background.i mention this as I was in Barcelona two weeks back at the Olympic stadium and this tune was one of the Olympic tunes.by the way the views up there of aircraft landing at BCN is amazing!

One aircraft that should never have being grounded, if only it wasn't for both the Air France crash in Gonesse and the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the world Trade centre in New York.
All 13+ remaining air-frames were still serviceable at the time of retirement and had plenty of air time left in them.

Here's a pic of British Airways G-BOAC sat outside at Manchester back in 2009.

According to one TV programme I watched, all the BA Concordes had at least another 20 years in them, as their flying hours were so limited and the fleet were rotated. They could still have been flying today had the demand not disappeared after 9/11.

I remember the fact it came in and the fact I didn't see it. I believe several of these came in actually, carrying horses for York Races?

Today's nostalgic photos from me relate to Euro 96 - the French contingent only, including a rare Air France Airbus A320 100 series, minus the usual winglets.
