Charlton Athletic And Suckling Do328

Fri Apr 13, 2012 4:05 pm

I attach a link to a nice photo of Charlton Athletic (London football team) plus a few sponsors in front of their chartered Suckling Do 328 at NCL - they flew up from STN for their key game at Carlisle tomorrow. A rare luxury for players at this level. Up the Addicks  

Suckling do seem to do a lot of this work, I guess the Do 328 is perfectly sized for flying sports teams around the UK.
it's the bus to stansted (now renamed National Express a6 to ruin my username)

Could the aircraft not have flown in to Carlisle airport?

I imagine they are probably staying overnight closer to NCL; often teams travelling the day before will train somewhere and stay overnight. However it is rare to stay in the vicinity of the host ground - my own team often stay about an hours drive from the hosts to use training facilities and a familiar hotel.

Yep. In fact there is a photo somewhere of the Suckling/Scott Do328 parked up on the ramp at Carlisle airport. I think it's on this database
