Falcon Airways
Aviation Traders ATL-98 Carvair
In Flight
UK - England, May 1979
Remark
Photographer
N80FA (cn 10273/7) Working at Southend Airport in the 'Seventies produced some great opportunities. Just before N80FA departed on its ferry flight to Texas, I was able to fix up an air-to-air session from Cessna 172 G-ATLN. We flew as fast as possible, the Carvair as slow as it could with everything down. I can still hear those P&Ws roaring over the sound of my open window and the general racket in the Cessna. I even sold my car to one of the Falcon directors who duly loaded and flew home to the States with it - truly Car-via-air as Freddie Laker originally intended. This aircraft crashed in Alaska in 1997 as N103; another of the few remaining Carvairs suffered a similar fate up there in May 2007, so now only two survive.

Untitled
Hamilton Helicopter
Off-Airport - Baltimore
USA - Maryland, December 8, 1947
Remark
Photographer
NC41970 This photo was taken by my Grandfather. He was one of the engineers that designed this aircraft. This is the first prototype and it was actually flown by Igor Sikorsky on a test flight. Never went in to production. This may be the only photo that exists of this helicopter. I have newspaper and company documentation telling the story of this aircraft. 6005 Eastern Ave, Baltimore.
