"Hello there!" Airside safety standards were not quite what they are now in those days. The A&AEE Valetta taxies in as crew ferry for Beverley XB261 which had just arrived for the Historic Aircraft Museum. Del. 3.5.61, s.o.c. 10.4.72 to Gatow fire dump and survived into the late 70s. Moormanair DC-3 PH-MOA visible on dump behind - engine failure on take-off and crash-landing after turning back four months earlier carrying Ajax football fans
