Late night visit by A320 EC-INZ saw the first sighting at MAN of the new name for Iberworld, Orbest Orizonia albeit on a hybrid scheme rather than the full new colours........

.......Whilst parked up for the night was Eastern Airways newest type and fleet member, Embraer 145 G-CGWV which had made its first visit but unfortunately wears an all white scheme with no titles.

MAN 9th October 2011 - First FinnComm to visit.

Seen arriving on a dull and wet morning, FinnComm Emb.170 OH-LEK makes the first visit of this scheme to MAN, nice to see too as the airline has been taken over by Flybe and the scheme will no doubt be consigned to the history books !!
