Interesting picture of the Orion Viking G-AHOS, went on to join Air Safaris I believe and ended its days being broken up at Hurn in 1962. Seen under the nose in this photograph are some buildings, does anyone recall what use they served at the time the photo was taken. In later life were these the buildings used by a flying school - UCL or something like that? Stuart
Great to have you aboard, and as for Eagle taking the first photo, I can think of better deserving cause. Especially when you look at who gave us the great honour of unveiling the "Airlines of Blackbushe Airport" sign back in '13. No less than the Founder of Eagle Airways himself, Mr Harold Bamberg.
A great moment in time..
Harold Bamberg on the right with Simon Biddulph on the left. Simon, of course, so generously manufactured the sign after our long consultations as to its design and content. The bloke in the middle was feeling disgust with the weather having just received a face full of fresh rain water, nonetheless I was very happy!!
Long may our association with Eagle Airways be maintained!!
Here we see a bit of south side maintenance on Hermes G-ALDM circa Sept. 1957. This aircraft was on lease to Britavia from African Air Safaris. Scanned from an old print, original photographer not known.
