A Boeing 757 sporting a shiny red nose is to make its first flight from Manchester Airport to Tenerife
The freshly decorated plane is the first of two to be given a special Comic Relief paintjob by First Choice Airways after its link-up with the charity event.
It will then go on to fly thousands of passengers between the UK and their holiday destinations until Red Nose Day on Friday March 16th 2007.
A second Boeing 757 will start flying from London Gatwick to Grenoble
on Saturday and will also carry on flying until the middle of March.
As well as the repainted planes, First Choice Airways is to have its cabin crew wear red noses and promote the event to all its passengers.
This will include getting them to reach deep into their pockets to find all the loose change they don't need to help the charity drive reach record levels in 2007.
Short and mid-haul passengers will also be treated to skits and comedy sketches from previous Red Nose Day events, featuring the comedy stylings of acts like Lenny Henry, Eddie Izzard and Ricky Gervais.
