Photographer's Remark

Served with Atlantic Airlines since 1999. On 12 Oct 2006 the #3 engine cowling separated during taxi for take-off at East Midlands, causing some damage to the Electra. With its CofA expiring in Sep 2007, this was enough to get the aircraft to be withdrawn from use and stored at Coventry, as seen here. It was eventually broken up in May 2013.
