Dan-Air London
Bristol 170 Freighter Mk31
Newcastle - Woolsington (NCL / EGNT)
UK - England, June 22, 1960
Remark
Photographer
G-APLH (cn 13250) Being prepared to received a load of seafood (lobsters, crabs, salmon etc), which can be seen on the truck parked behind the tail. However it looks as if the aircraft had previously been configured for a livestock flight, with the nose ramp being in place which wouldn't be needed for loading the seafood cargo. A fleet of three Bristol 170's were operated during a 13 year period, on ad-hoc freight and livestock charters.

Untitled
Bristol 170 Freighter Mk31M
Southend - Rochford (SEN / EGMC)
UK - England, September 2, 1962
Remark
Photographer
G-ARSA (cn 13169) This ex Pakistan Air Force Freighter (ex S4409), still in camouflage colours, arrived at Southend complete with British registration 13 Aug 1961 and was placed into storage. This aircraft was registered to British United Airways and remained unconverted, but used as a spares supply until it was moved to the scrap area at Southend in November 1962. It was finally broken up two years later.

Silver City Airways
Bristol 170 Freighter Mk21
Newcastle - Woolsington (NCL / EGNT)
UK - England, June 12, 1960
Remark
Photographer
G-AIFM (cn 12773) One of the Silver City fleet which was based at Blackpool, to serve a network of scheduled services from the Isle of Man previously operated by Manx Airlines (based at Ronaldsway). The Freighters were converted to 44-seat Wayfarer standard, but retained the nose doors and the area being used to store baggage. This can be seen being loaded on the picture through a floor hatch, which was also used for crew entry/exit. All the fleet carried names, this one being "City of Carlisle".

Once all test flying was complete in 1957, it was offered for sale and after a long overhaul by Eagle Aviation at Blackbushe was ready for service in May 1959 and converted to Wayfarer Mark 2.

Air Condor
Bristol 170 Freighter Mk21
Newcastle - Woolsington (NCL / EGNT)
UK - England, July 17, 1960
Remark
Photographer
G-AHJD (cn 12736) Leased to Air Condor, but in fact owned and operated by North South Airlines, having been registered to them 4th July 1960. Air Condor only operated this aircraft for just over two months prior to sale, so this could be quite a rare photograph of a little known UK independent airline which operated less than one year.

Sabena
Bristol 170 Freighter Mk32
Southend - Rochford (SEN / EGMC)
UK - England, September 2, 1962
Remark
Photographer
G-APAV (cn 13263) During this period two Super Freighters were painted in Sabena colours to operate a pooled route between Southend and Ostend. From time to time one of the Super Freighters was configured to a 60 seater to provide additional passenger capacity on the route. During 1962 owner Channel Air Bridge at Southend and Silver City at Lydd worked in close association with each other and finally merged into what became British United Air Ferries on 1st January 1963. This is the last Bristol 170 built.

Lancashire Aircraft Corporation
Bristol 170 Freighter Mk21
Newcastle - Woolsington (NCL / EGNT)
UK - England, August 25, 1957
Remark
Photographer
G-AICS (cn 12762) This was one of two Wayfarers leased from Silver City during 1957 and based at Blackpool. This was the final year of L.A.C.'s commercial operations before they were taken over by Silver City. Seen here being turned around on a Manx Airlines scheduled flight from and to the Isle of Man. Locally, we knew this type of aircraft as the "Whispering Nissan Hut" -- I wonder why?

Wideroe
Douglas C-47A Skytrain (DC-3)
Newcastle - Woolsington (NCL / EGNT)
UK - England, July 27, 1962
Remark
Photographer
LN-LMR (cn 13652) This aircraft was only leased to Wideroe from May - Sept 1962 and was the first DC-3 in the fleet which was obtained to start charter flights from Oslo. This was its only visit to Newcastle, where it was parked to one side prior to going to the terminal area, to collect a cargo of seafood which arrived by road from Eyemouth. This was big business until the arrival of the refrigerated trucks.

Hunting-Clan Air Transport
Vickers 610 Viking 1B
Blackbushe (BBS / EGLK)
UK - England, June 18, 1955
Remark
Photographer
G-AIVC (cn 216) Still retaining its Eagle Airways colours, this was leased by Hunting-Clan for nine months and seen here on its first visit to Newcastle and being viewed by four of the local spotters / enthusiasts under the nose. Few records show this aircraft being operated by HCA and it never appeared in their official fleet list.

UK - England, July 3, 1956

G-AOBN (cn 11711) This was the only ever visit of Air Kruise to Newcastle, with passengers for the "Royal Show". During this period Air Kruise were based at Ferryfield Airport and being owned by the British Aviation Services Group, who also owned Silver City Airways.

Fred Olsen Airtransport
Douglas C-47A Skytrain (DC-3)
Newcastle - Woolsington (NCL / EGNT)
UK - England, April 4, 1959
Remark
Photographer
LN-IAS (cn 19458) Taken early evening with a low sun. Colour scheme was a cream (very light yellow) roof and tailplane with fuselage stripe. Shortly afterwards this was changed, the fuselage stripe was removed and the cream colours extended below the fuselage stripe line. The roof titles became "Fred Olsen Line" in very pale blue which wasn't good for photography. At the time Fred Olsen had an office at Newcastle Airport and all movements were in support of their shipping line, which had a large presence on the River Tyne.
