The Bahamanian airline operation was totally separate from the U. S. airline that Sir Freddie set up with a rich Texan (I believe he was from Texas) with DC10's to London from MCO, FLL and MIA. The Bahamian operation is still running. The U. S. airline ceased operations. They had two DC10-30's and one DC10-10 as a spare - the -10 had to stop in Bangor for fuel on the way back from London. It's a shame that it didn't work out for Sir Freddie and the Laker employees.
