Departed Prestwick 16:00 local yesterday, having arrived there from home base via two-hour stopover at Shannon ( I thought was a bit of an odd dogleg )

One of the chaps at Shannon caught it on departure

After days of silence Ukraine Air Alliance has risen to new heights to meet the PR challenges posed by the present internet age. They removed UR-DFW from their "products"...
