This photo is copyright protected and may not be used in any way without proper permission.
One of the Silver City fleet which was based at Blackpool, to serve a network of scheduled services from the Isle of Man previously operated by Manx Airlines (based at Ronaldsway). The Freighters were converted to 44-seat Wayfarer standard, but retained the nose doors and the area being used to store baggage. This can be seen being loaded on the picture through a floor hatch, which was also used for crew entry/exit. All the fleet carried names, this one being "City of Carlisle".
