Thomas Cook Aircraft/defunked

Post by airfixpilot » Tue Oct 22, 2019 6:02 am

Can we try and get some pics of Thomas Cook airline fleet before they disappear?. I know that other arms of the Thomas Cook airline fleet are still flying and was not effected by the collapse (European arm, I think??).
Think this was the worst collapse since Monach

A perfect day is at a airport with a scanner, camera. flask of coffee, sandwiches & biscuits.

Keep calm and chill

'We' can try but it's down to any members who have time to venture out to obtain photos or are lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time and have the desire to do so. Personally I already have many photos of many Thomas Cook aircraft so have no desire to chase around all over the place to gain more (of the same). I find it rather sad myself seeing the remnants of a failed business parked up awaiting their fate - not as sad as all those people who lost their jobs but they still tell a sorry story.

If you care to search the topics (use the search box at the top right of the screen) you will certainly find some have been posted since the demise such as this topic which took me 10 seconds to find: https://www.civilianaviation.co.uk/foru ... 69&t=33863 .

Coincidentally this month's SPOTM subject is 'British holiday airlines of the past (either defunct or absorbed into other companies)(note the spelling of DEFUNCT - defunked means 'When something happens, or is said/done to spoil a mood/atmosphere/occasion' according to the urban dictionary, it probably hasn't made the Oxford English dictionary yet) sorry I digressed, anyway this month's competition already contains some Thomas Cook or ex. Thomas Cook aircraft if you wish to peruse that topic. Otherwise feel free to venture out with a camera yourself and start a dedicated topic.
