Cold war malaria warning
« on: January 10, 2016, 12:01:47 pm »
At the end of WW2 dozens of airlines set up using converted ex RAF aircraft carrying passengers and freight and doing survey work

Castle air services was no exception but made a name for itself for the wrong reasons……………… despite having good ex RAF personnel it soon gained a reputation for its aircraft getting lost over the Baltic and Europe

The airline often hired planes out to a company called universal export and despite the need for large cargo aircraft during the berlin airlift the planes often flew in and out of berlin getting lost on the way home!

Hehehe, that all sounds a tad familiar somehow.  ;D :lol:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Now pay attention CbE...

Let's make Victoria great again.

Another ill conceived, poorly thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.
