Charlton Athletic And Suckling Do328

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.

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
