Some old BMI stuff....

My folks recently moved house so a LOT of stuff was cleared out the loft. Much of it went into a skip, but the following are just about to head for the internet's biggest car boot sale. Thought I'd snap them to share before Mrs Swiss got rid of them.

OK, so I can't do this embedded image thing, but have a look here for a BMI DC3, plus some other things you'd probably have 2nd thoughts about stepping into in 2012...

Nice. They're probably flying some route in deepest Russia now :-)

Sad - can remember flying the other three props and the Viscounts which seemed to be in service nearly too the 1990s

My dad was talking just the other day of his first flight - a Derby Airways DC3 to Jersey from Burnaston. Not sure if there is a direct relationship, but he didn't fly again for another 20 years ...
