I thought Titan was taking on more Airbus rather than getting rid of some.

It was a fixed-term lease from CIT Aerospace. Was due up in early 2018.

Why G-POW_? Many airlines have an identifiable reason for the recurring part of the reg. but I’ve never been able to put POW together with Titan and I need to know!

I suggest ZAP and POW relate to the noises cartoon characters make when fighting

Yes always was & totally as conceived...Genuis...
Callsign ZAP & reg sequence POW*.....& as stated from the old batman TV series with the drawn insets when there was a fight...
But now up to POWT so soon to run out of that sequence alas.
With the earlier blue livery the globe on the side was a representation of the largest moon of Saturn....Titan!!.

Yes....quite right first in that original sequence was ZAPA a C404.
To POW`s when that sequence ran out.
Tragically one of the original founders of Titan was killed when ZAPP his Christen Eagle aerobatic a/c crashed one evening back in 1990.

For which they originally advertised for pilots with the headline "Would you like a four-day week?"

Their ICAO designator of AWC is a bit odd, perhaps selected for Aircraft Worldwide Charter? Perhaps they thought ZAP was a bit alarming for a departures board.

Yes...AWC prefix effectively the only part that doesn't fit a genius idea...

I believe AWC are the initials of the joint founder who was killed in the crash mentioned a few posts earlier. A tribute perhaps.

Quite correct Monty, a tribute to Allen Chapman.

Thanks, makes sense.

Digging into ICAO history revealed that the designator POW is allocated to Hagondale Ltd. Weren't they Titan's owners at some point?

Update: still active on Companies House with same address and directors as Titan.
