That's modern technology for you, 2.5 tonnes of paper records onto one CD.

Sad to see these two aircraft leaving for the knackers yard. I was on the ramp at LTN when NR arrived from Toulouse, and it felt like such a big jump forward for MON, all down to Alan Snuddens vision, and as for CD, to many it's just another 320 but the gentleman it was named in honour of, he was scary, knowledgeable, well respected, and mad in equal measures, RIP the original PCD and his 320 G-MPCD.

Manthrust I think you will find that CD will mean a very large cardboard dustbin or ten.

BHX Hangar

D5 Architects LLP - News

I would say a significant bit of news for Monarch, BHX and the greater West Midlands. Has somebody jumped the gun here?

Not sure if the link will open but just Google d5 architects if not. It seems to open at the Homepage but just click the news/press release link.

Think you need to take a much closer look! It depends on what you are looking at, dates etc. If no direct route exists on a day, it will show indirect flights. The new routes are direct/non-stop.

Still a shame that no one bought MONR for use as a freighter. Talking of scrapping aircraft one of the bmi 330's is going to be scrapped and thats only 11 years old.

That's interesting to hear about MPCD being named after somebody, wasn't aware of that. I know it's a bit spotter-ish, but MON has a few regs in the fleet that don't correspond with the others (MAJS, OJMR, DAJB, MRJK, MARA, OJEG... and both A330's - EOMA and SMAN). Anyone know if there's a story behind these as well?

The registrations all refer to former company directors , chief pilots , or company shareholders.

I see that, having done their last flights, no time was wasted in the process of getting them off the books. 'NR flew MAN-BRU earlier this morning, with 'CD following a few minutes behind.

benjamino,
Indeed some a/c have a registration nb which is linked to some people who brought a significant input in Monarch.
G-MAJS is dedicated to John Snudden for instance.

Peter Dorrington was at Court Line and moved to Monarch when they went bust and Jim Rainbow cut his teeth at Manston working for either Invicta or Air Ferry.

Monarch registrations

I'm ashamed to say that even after 8 years working for them, I wasn't aware of aircraft registrations being named after people. I remember well Jim Rainbow, Don McAngus, Jack Burridge and Peter Dorrington. Sadly I left before Alan Snudden took office, so never knew him.

DAJB was for Danny Bernstein, who was the MD for quite a long time!
