Quite the assortment I must say and quite a few oddball aircraft. Are the belfast and Canadair Cl-44-o used. Last I heard they were bringing the Belfast up to spec, but Last I heard about the Cl-44 was that it was gathering dust and they were doing the odd upgrade from time to time....would be nice so see those rare ones about...

This is *STILL* sat at Bournemouth Airport in England, now without engines and possibly going to a museum and not into the fleet of Heavylift. The CAA will not allow it to fly.
