  1. 757 G-BIKI (22180/0025)

    Ferry flight on 3 October 2000 was London Heathrow – Goose Bay – Wichita using call-sign ‘GBIKI’. I have it that the nose-wheel door was painted with ‘LO’ and not ‘DLO’ but I cannot now confirm this. I also have it that ‘LO’ was painted centrally above the flight-deck windscreen.

    Ferry flight on 5 July 2001 was Wichita – Goose Bay – East Midlands.

    The last record I have of this aircraft in the DHL red livery is at Madrid on 2 June 2009.
