Silver City Airways' Dakota G-AMYV temporarily masquerading in 'military' marks as 'RAF' XF623 for flights to the Suez Canal Zone, where civilian aircraft were not allowed by the Egyptians. The airline's titles have been deleted - but G-AMYV is still visible below the fin stripes. The a/c served SCA, and its Air Kruise associate, from 04.53 until 01.62.
