Photo Comment

Although carrying UAS titles on the fin this aircraft was operated by Canafrica on flights mainly for Thompson Holidays in the summer of 1986. It was supposed to operate mainly from GLA but the aircraft was frequently unserviceable and became known as The White Ghost due to its infrequent appearances !
