A typical scene at Ringway in the early 1950s with the apron dominated by the good old DC-3. HB-IRE on the Zurich schedule is nearest, then KLM, Air France and British European Airways at far left. The Swissair DC-3 was assembled by Fokker in April 1939 and is fitted with Wright Cyclone engines with narrow chord cowlings.
