This DC-3 is no stranger having previously been based at Dublin as EI-BDU of Clyden Airways and as G-AKNB with a variety of UK operators for many years before that. It was converted to BT-67 standard by Basler at Oshkosh and is in pristine condition. It stopped off for fuel while routing from the USA to Djibouti via Goose Bay, Keflavik, Dublin, Genoa & Cairo.
Three classic props feature in this image. Clyden was a short-lived cargo operator which had gone out of business early in 1981, while Aer Turas Britannia EI-BBH still had six months or so of service left before being sold in Zaire.
