Fordair Avro RJ100 G-OFMC landing at Southend (Peter Fox)

Flightline began operating former Turkish Airlines Avro RJ100 G-OFMC (msn E3264 ex TC-THM) on a twice daily weekday shuttle between Southend and Köln on behalf of Fordair, the flight department of car manufacturer Ford. G-OFMC had initially been registered G-CDUI, but this turned out to be a singularly inappropriate registration for an aircraft used by a US auto company, as decades of TV police shows have taught everyone that “DUI” means “driving under the influence” — driving drunk!
