Finding archive aircraft regs

I am after the reg of a Britannia 767 that flew from Manchester to Malta on a Tuesday in September 2002; I canít remember the exact date, all I can remember is that it was all white (due to be painted into Thomson scheme) and I think the last letter of the reg was ĎFí. Hope someone can help, thanks in advance.

Possibly G-OBYF 767-300 although can't think why it would have been white?

BRIF was a 200ER. I'd have thought it more likely to have been a 200 as 300's were rarely used on short haul back then.

Didn't one go on lease to Air Holland and came back white?

That was G-BRIF between October 90 and 91.

G-OBYF was chartered to Garuda between January and March 2002 and again in April 2003, so despite it being a -300 series, this is most likely your bird. I imagine that Britannia, knowing it was going back to Garuda again, but not wanting to frighten the pax, () probably just kept it in the white scheme for the summer.
