Aviation Traders ATL-90 Accountant

Mon Jun 19, 2000 8:08 pm

OK, no response, so let me help you, one only built by a company that had never designed or built an aircraft before. Broadly similar to an Avro 748, but with a very different fuselage. had a huge C of G problem. The company was owned by a certain Freddie Laker, who sold to Airwork Services, who cancelled the Accountant due to no orders forthcoming.See a photo at

Thanks VC-10, it was a simple "anyone know anything?"
about two days ago. I can email you two photos, including one initial hangar roll-out from '57, if you're interested. I shouldn't be obsessive but I don't like to let these things beat me. Cheers again.
