With the COVID-19 lockdown having put paid to their family’s annual trip to Menorca, Andrew and Melvyn Morley delve through their archive to share a selection of previously unseen images of 1990s aviation on the Spanish island.
1 Flying Colours operated a dozen Boeing 757-200s between February 1997 and March 2000. This example, G-FCLD (c/n 28718), is seen on a turnaround at Menorca. The jet later flew for JMC Airlines and Thomas Cook Airlines before undergoing freighter conversion and joining India’s Blue Dart Aviation in October 2014.
2 Air 2000 received its maiden Airbus A320 on April 11, 1992 and a second, G-OOAB (c/n 292), joined the fleet 11 days later. The jet wears the company’s Landor-designed livery first introduced in 1996.
