Monarch Airlines A Tribute Flying Into History is my latest aviation video to commemorate and airline. Monarch was almost 50 years old when it sadly and suddenly ceased operations in the early hours of 2 October 2017 and went into administration with KPMG taking over winding down of the airline and assets. This video features some unique footage and photographs of Monarch aircraft through time. Beginning with an Airbus A321 landing at London Luton, the footage reverses into the sunset and clouds as we travel back in time with images of Monarch 757, 737-300 and 737-200 (look carefully for the BAC1-11) before a glimpse aboard a Monarch Bristol Britannia from back in 1972. Following these titles is a selection of Monarch jets that I've filmed at various locations including London Luton, Manchester Airport, London Stansted and Tenerife. The footage is from a variety of formats, from Super 8 Cine Film through to HD and 4K. Above all I hope you enjoy watching my attempt at a tribute to this airline. So many employees spoke about a sense of family when working there. This is my tribute to some of the history of Monarch. Best wishes to the employees that cared so much about their passengers and their airline. Thank you for watching.
