Gemini presents this 2007 issue 757 in its updated and current packaging featuring a open flap viewing lid, standard card stock box, and the usual transparent lid over blue cradle. The inner flap provides the usual tech specs of the 1/1. It also includes the usual nice overview of the physical dimensions of the aircraft.
Boeing 757 airframe number 172 was delivered to Monarch Airlines in 1988 and spent its first decade of service with Monarch. Starting in 1998, it seems G-MONK was seasonally leased to Dinar Lineas Aereas to fly South American charters but returned to the fleet permanently by the end of the year 2000.
According to a few sources, G-MONK was pulled from service in November of 2014 and scrapped a few months later in April of 2015. At just over 26 years of age this aircraft undoubtably helped families all over the world create lifelong memories of family vacations and assisted Monarch in becoming a primer choice for jet setters and holiday makers alike.
