With kind permission of Allan Jenkins. A pair of Bristol Freighters (a.k.a. Bristol 'Frighteners'). They came through with a 'special cargo' en route for the Monte Bello Islands. It was rumoured that they were carrying the atomic bomb that was tested there soon afterwards. I would not want to be flying an atomic bomb around in that horrible aircraft - I very nearly had the misfortune to fly one for Silver City (BUA) when I qualified but escaped.
