    Nice shots there , may I ask what is Jet 2's official tail design? is it the red one with 'Jet2.com' written on it?

    I personally assume it is because they applied it to the 757s.

        Hi

        Nice Shots mate. I was going to go up but its way to cold today. Did you see the 4 hour delayed Thomsonfly B767-200 going to Bridgetown-Barbados??

        The silver tail was the official tail design when the airline was launched back in 2003. But with the new Manchester base in 2004 came a new tail design. (The Red one that is) Also it's to advertise the website more as they sell most of there seats via the net nowa days. like most airlines do.

        So the Red tail is the official design now. The remainder off the fleet which still have the silver tails will be repainted when the aircraft go in for there next D-Check all acounts.

          Nice shots, looks like you were in the same place as Paul and myself! Though I arrived just after the a/c you photographed were around, he'll be on in a bit posting his great efforts from his superb new toy

                        We appreciate you both getting cold!! Excellent photos.
                        The 767 positioned in on time but was immediately posted as delayed departure as soon as it arrived. Was there a tech problem after landing or was there a problem at the other end - somebody lost the ship or something??

                            The Thomsonfly Boeing 767-200 G-BYAB at LBA this morning Suffered a problem on short finals this morning in-bound from Manchester.

                            She encountered a flock of birds about 200ft from touchdown. She suffered a bird strike with 5, that right, 5 Black Headed Gulls. So an Engine repair took place on stand 8 at LBA this morning in which caused the delayed departure. Thomsonfly sent in its Mooney 201 (G-OBAL) with an engineer from Luton at around 11ish to fix the aircrafts engine. Then about 12ish they did an engine run on stand to test it. Once this was complete the aircraft was safe to get on its way to Bridgetown. Leavening LBA at 13:18. Just 4 hours late.

                            I wonder if theyll hold the cruise ship for them??

                            Your aircraft is 4 hours late on arrival from LBA, Then seeing your ship has set sail and has already left the Harbour/Docks. Now that wouldnt be nice.

                              The boss man didn't like the gray tail and he decided the current design looked more prominent. Personally I agree.
