    Another shot of same DC-4

    My brother Chris, 10, top steps, heading to England somewhere on the 20th
    June 1950. Braathens rings a bell. Probably be able to find the flight number and manifest if Google didn't keep leading me astry.



    Below,Pan Am Connie Brussels 30 May 1948.

        Well, 'pinkharrier'..., what can I say? First of all welcome to out "home"!!

        Then, if you find more Braathens-images, post'em!!!

        You know, Ludvig. G. Braathen started his airline originally to fly ship crews and ship spare parts out in South-America and Far-East where his large fleet of ships were.
        The rest is history, as we say.
        LN-HAV is a DC-4 which Braathens named "Norse Explorer". It originally left the factory as a C-54A, and after Braathens finished using it, they sold the plane in 1950 to Seaboard & Western Airlines as N1220V

            Thank you for those old photos. It is interesting to see how the passengers are dressed. Gone are the days when men wore a suit and women a nice dress for a airplane flight. Last week on my flight from Atlanta to Raleigh-Durham I did not see a single suit on the flight and there was only one man wearing a sports coat.

              Not to mention singlets, sandals and Hawaiian shirts.. or as here in Norway, track suits...

                DH Flamingo G-AFYH

                A truly beautiful aircraft, not unlike the Connie. Photo taken 20 Jan 1948 probably at Redhill, England.

                    .....
                    Just a matter of curiosity by me, but can anyone tell me more about these planes construction?

                    Are they wooden framed and covered with thin aluminum plates?

                      I thought it was constructed of wood like the Mosquito but apparently not. It was de Havillands first all-metal stressed skin construction aircraft with some fabric covered control surfaces. First flew in 1939.

                          Some really increadible shots of the crash of the moment when Pilot Capt. Brian Bews ejects from his CF-18 fighter jet as it plummets to the ground during a practice flight at the Lethbridge County Airport on Friday, July 23 for the weekend airshow in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada.

                          "He is alive and we believe right now that his injuries are non-life-threatening," Canadian Forces Capt. Nicole Meszaros told CBC News.

                            Stornoway aircraft

                            28 July 2010, mist thickening fast...




                            FlyBe departing Stornoway


                            next photo would have been the coastguard helicopter but the mist was too thick to make it worth posting.

                              A mist image could be a realy good one, so maybe you should have fired away a shot just for test of that helicopter.
                              Anyway, seems to be a lot of SAAB aircraft over there, if these two are random and both happen to be SAAB manufactured

                                Completely random photos. I've just looked up the airport info.. Eastern Airways fly to Aberdeen and the rest of the scheduled flights are FlyBe to Edinburgh, Glasgow and Inverness.

                                I did take a photo of the coastguard helicopter but even with extensive editing it remained really bad. I was actually quite surprised they were still flying and wondered, at the time, if there was a call-out.
