    Thanks for the photos. Under normal circumstances, I'd be delighted to see them in at BHX. Today though, their sight is tinged with sadness.

    Rob it's an A340-300 (EC-MFA) in the colours of Plus Ultra. It also appears to have 'Cubana' titles on the rear fuselage.
    I saw it's arrival on FR24 in the early hours.

    [​IMG] Here's another EC-MFB Plus Ultra Airbus A340 on its arrival from Palma. Omni Air Internation Boeing 777 behind it (N846AX). Another Omni Air International 777 arrived very shortly after but unfortunately I had to leave.

    Another very early flight to Frankfurt last Thursday for some more night shots at BHX.Sadly also the last pictures of operational Monarch planes as they failed on the following Monday.I hope all the loyal staff find new employment quickly.Regards,Simon.

    I'm sure the professional attitude of ex-Monarch staff, especially over the uncertainties of the last few years, will put their CV's on the top of the pile of anyone recruiting.

    Any one help I'm planning on a trip down Tuesday probably about 8-4 just wondered what sort of time these two are operating if still operating in to BHX which I assume they are and what they operated last week if anybody knows.

    Sorry rob, i didnt reply becouse i had no idea what time the Plus ultra departs. I think its very random to be honest and doesnt follow a particular schedule. :unsure:

    Im sure if somebody did know, they would of replied.
