Remarks: This aircraft was operating for XL Airways U.K. back in the days before the U.K. division of the airline went bankrupt. The aircraft had recently become a part of XL France after the airline had been renamed earlier that year from Star Airlines France and still shows signs of its previous livery in this photo.
Remarks: Arriving at Manchester so the manager could renew the contract with Manchester United and on PR activities. Spot the players that no longer play for United as it is most of them on this side. The low evening autumn light glowing off the fuselauge makes this aircraft look even better. Dedicated to all my fellow United fans including Murtaza Sattar, Sam Pollitt and Matt McNulty.
