Malaysian CL-415 at MAN 17/12

Post by hoppie »

Making it's second visit to MAN, having staged through on it's original delivery flight to the MMEA in November 2008. Annoyingly it was unpainted for some reason 2 years ago but it was looking much better this time in full colours, despite arriving just as the light was starting to fade. Planned departure is currently 0900 on Saturday 18th, forcasted fog permitting...

Cheers everyone, looks a bit different to when it first visited, and not just the paint job either - the photo of it on it's original delivery flight back in 2008 shows it minus the bulbous nose and forward observation window in front of the wing. Might explain why it made the long trek back to Bombardier...
