It’s Sunday again – so it must be time for some more airplane art.
This week we have a FlyBe de Havilland Dash 8-Q400 arriving at Birmingham Airport, as it prepares to turn for the gate to allow its passengers off the aircraft.
FlyBe (as part of the Connect Airways consortium) operates a fleet of 54 de Havilland Dash 8 Q400 aircraft (acquired when the type was sold by Bombardier). They are support by 11 Embrarer E-175 regional jets and five Embarer E-195 (with the E-195s due to leave the fleet this fiscal year).
The airline operates five ATR72-600s directly on behalf of Scandinavian Airlines too.
The FlyBe fleet operates from regional points in the UK, providing a mixture of UK Domestic and Short-Haul European flights – whilst the network rationalisation begins to bring the airline back into a stable operating position.
This aircraft – G-FLBC is a 10 year old aircraft that was delivered directly to the airline. FlyBe operates the type in a single-class configuration, with 78 seats installed on the aircraft.
More airplane art next week!
