Birmingham 3rd July 2015 - Hainan B.767-300 B-2490 arrives on inaugural "2015 Beijing Charter"

Arriving just after the early morning fog had cleared, Hainan B767-300 B-2490 was making the first visit of one of their 767's to the UK. Sadly the air was still thick with moisture resulting in a fair bit of mist being dragged along behind on short final!
This was the first of the short series of twice weekly charter flights to the Midlands for summer 2015.



It was also nice to catch up with Jettime B737-700 OY-JTY which has been leased by Monarch Airlines for the summer season, the aircraft carries "operated on behalf of Monarch Airlines" titles.



A couple of early morning freight flights saw Arcus Air Do.228 D-CAAM and RAF Avia Saab340 YL-RAG arrive.
