Dublin Movements, March 1976

The month saw my first sighting of BAF's bare-metal Carvair G-ASDC, named "Plain Jane". Photo This was quite a novel look for a European cargo operator. I have a clear recollection of it landing on runway 17 on a typically dull St. Patrick's Day.  The National Day probably also accounted for the visit of ONA DC-8 N868F, in that carrier's elegant livery. Photo of N868F  The Egyptair 737 on the 31st was actually Aer Lingus's EI-ASB returning from a winter lease. It would be leased out again the following winter, to Brazilian carrier VASP.
