Hello Kevin
in 1966 I took a Cosmos Holiday to Italy near the border with Monaco. My family and I flew out from Manston on Air Ferry DC-6 G-APNO and returned on G-APNP. These were my first flights and, while exciting, did not register with me until i went propliner crazy in the mid 1970s. Wish I had a camera then..
I met Steven Piercey at Miami Airport and we became friends. He roped me in to obtain and supply a number of pictures for early editions of Propliner - including XA-NUW the DC-4M at Mexico City, the Chilean DC-6 line up at Opa Locka and the Constellations at Stephenville. I sat next to Steven on his organised enthusiast flight from LGW on DC-6 HB-IBS. Many know that this aircraft is actually ex G-APNO, flew in Biafra and had patched up bullet holes in the fuselage. Ah memories....

Tony,

Well done again with the latest issue. The Sagittair Argosy in the colour spread was a joy!

I am glad to see that the magazine is still being published. Does anyone have some back issues available (nos. 1 & 2 and from 12 onwards)?

Can anyone shed some light on a travel experience I had as a child in the 1960's? My family and I flew from Manston (Kent) to Italy on board a DC6b, my father tells me that the airline was named Air Bridge Charter but I can't find any record of this company, can anyone help?

Just read the awesome piece about Baginton. Had me in tears. I started 'spotting' at Elmdon in 1967 and visited Coventry that year, so Constellations and G-APEZ are fixed,seared upon my cerebral cortex.. Sadly the only camera my brother and I possessed was a Brownie Box. The props of this era are still as fresh in my mind today as they were then. From G-AIVF Invicta Viking and EI-APC B170 Aer Turas struggling to get off the short runway at Elmdon; parting the wheat in it's wake as it flew at what seemed like 20ft in the direction of Coventry over the fields...I still have a framed b/w picture of me in my gaberdene school mac at the tender age of 12 standing under G-ANTF at Baginton. Ye Gods the tales I could tell of my adventures with props and airfields from the days before 'the security paranoia'..

Always a thrill when the latest PL comes through the letter box. My latest project is a history of Cardiff airport at Rhoose - any memories, photos will be gratefully received, particularly photos of the 1962 French rugby airlift and the Air Laos Stratoliner and DC-4.
