Photo Comment

Thorne Aviation was a small charter operator based at Squires Gate between May 1947 and summer 1949. They used this Autocrat on pleasure flights and other activities for most of that period. The Lancashire Aircraft Corporation hangars are in the background, now used by Westair and others.
