The 737 was GLA based in 1990, "Uncle Henry" I believe, G-KKUH. They were a quality outfit, all went wrong in that god awful 1992 rebrand with the blue starfish on the tail.

The T3/BE tie up looked very odd. For a franchisee to have one single aircraft painted after all this time shows you how well behind it they are.

When Continental/United first ran ops at both airports, they soon shifted focus their from West to East, I wonder if the 2nd daily GLA might move East rather than a 2nd daily EDI in the medium term?
