Default Excalibur Airways

Excalibur Airways was formed in the spring of 1992 and was based at the East Midlands Airport. It began charter operations with three leased Airbus A320s and most of the flights were out of London Gatwick airport. In 1994, one more A320 and a Boeing 737-300 were added. Excalibur was the first UK charter airline to operate the A320 with its (at the time) new fly-by-wire control system.

The tail decal was created from an image and then enhanced using MS Paint.
The colour of the hilt is in fact light grey/silver not white.

EasyJet operated B737’s from its launch in November 1997 and only began using Airbus aircraft from October 2002.
