Photo Comment

Mayfair Air Services was a shady Croydon business which transferred at least a dozen aircraft to the fledgling Israeli Air Force. This Rapide was X7500 in the RAF and became S-74 in the IAF. What does the subtitle read - 'London & British Africa'? On the left is VQ-PAR, ex NR718. On the right, a Miles Aerovan, probably G-AJWI which crashed in IAF service on 17 July 1948. This very interesting photo was probably taken in Tel Aviv circa May 1948.
