Dan Air

Post by waghorn41 » Wed Nov 29, 2017 6:43 pm

Time for some more nostalgia, here's my small contribution.
BAC 1-11 and Comets at Gatwick probably 1978, Dan Air / IAS 707 at Kai Tak 1976.

Nice theme - two more types from me (again old poor quality scans):

Great shots! Nostalgia's creeping over me too I'm afraid :D The last time I was in Gatwick was in June when I took a flight to Greece and it was a living hell. I'd love to see some trees around like in the good old days. Is it just me getting old? :cry:

A trio of Dan Air types, all taken on the same day, 14 April 1979 at Manchester.

I don't think I have any photos of Dan-Air from the past but I do have some of my favourite aircraft, the Avro York, G-ANTK at Duxford ... not easy to get a whole aircraft photo so a couple of part shots ... including my son !

G-ANTK.

I'd forgotten the Duxford York was in Dan Air colours. Hope you don't mind me sticking my nose in Keith :lol:

Not a problem Nighthawke very nice ! Am I correct thinking the long term rebuild of an Airspeed Ambassador at Duxford will also be in Dan Air colours ??

Another one I'd forgotten about! This was taken in 2012 - haven't been since but presumably either completed or very near if this is anything to go by.

Thanks for that Nighthawke ! The old memory still works then ... I've not been to Duxford since 2012 ... Shocking !

I've really enjoyed looking at the pictrures posted to date, what great memories they bring back, especially of lazy Sunday afternoons at Lasham in the 70's and 80's.

Sadly none from me going back to the 70's, but a selection of scanned images.

After seeing the pictures of G-ALZO at Duxford, remembered that I had one of it in service, taken at Amsterdam Schiphol April 1971.
