Riddle Airlines
Douglas DC-7C(F) Seven Seas
Glasgow - Prestwick (PIK / EGPK)
UK - Scotland, October 19, 1961
Remark
Photographer
N296 (cn 45466/955) This ex Northwest aircraft was delivered to Riddle 29 Jul 1961 and converted to DC-7CF freighter. Small titles on the tail read "US Mail 109 - 120". Looking inside the open freight door, the aircraft appears to be loaded from floor to ceiling with mail bags. Possibly operating a military mail flight to Germany or the US, not sure now which direction the aircraft was going.

KLM - Royal Dutch Airlines
Douglas DC-7C Seven Seas
Glasgow - Prestwick (PIK / EGPK)
UK - Scotland, June 17, 1961
Remark
Photographer
PH-DSN (cn 45546/1031) In typical Scottish weather I found this DC-7 parked at Scottish Aviation undergoing repairs. This was six days after heavy vibration in the propellor eventually caused its no.1 engine to break loose and fall in the Atlantic Ocean. This was on a flight New York - Prestwick - Amsterdam, and the aircraft managed to land safely at Prestwick. Note the spare engine beside the old saloon car, it's nearly the same size!
