I remember G-APML with great affection as I worked at Ronaldsway for over 37 years and she was a regular visitor. Martin Bakers (IOM) was the Ronaldsway Aicraft Company and they were based just across the road from the Terminal Building. She was always in immaculate condition and I believe she won an award at the Paris Air Show (approx 1990) for the best preserved DC3. Heathrow may have been a diversion due to weather as the usual trip was from Belfast - Ronaldsway - Denham carrying 'chutes and chair components down to Denham for assembly.

Hi there, I worked at Ronaldsway for nearly 40 years and the familiar 'squeal' of the brakes on the "Dack" was a wonderful memory that only had to be heard and not seen. I think she won a prize at a Paris Air Show for the best preserved DC3. She was always in superb gleaming condition whilst at Martin Bakers. Unfortunately, I only saw her once after she was sold and sad to say she was having to work for her existance and not the top model any longer.
