Acquired by Air Atlantique Historic Flight (later Air Atlantique Classic Flight) from the battle of Britain Memorial Flight in Oct 1998.

In 2004/2005 it was painted in the pristine Royal Air Force Tranport Command markings seen here, and often flown on the warbird circuit. In Apr 2016 this Devon was registered to Weald Air Services (Keith Perkins).

Owned by Duchess of Brittany (Jersey) Ltd, this Heron is not part of the Air Atlantique Classic Flight collection but is under the care of them. It has been flying in these original and totally accurate Jersey Airlines colours since 1990. The aircraft, seen here receiving some tender loving care in the Air Atlantique Classic Flight hangar, was still flying out of Coventry by August 2018.

G-AMRA, adorned with ClassicFlight.com titles, is receiving some tender loving care in the Air Atlantique Classic Flight hangar. On 30 Jul 2013 this DC-3, operated by Air Atlantique since 1981, departed Coventry for the last time, on delivery to new owner Air Service Berlin. It was intended as the replacement for their first DC-3 D-CXXX (c/n 32872) which had crashlanded in Jun 2010. By May 2014 G-AMRA was still in basic Air Atlantique colours but now with registration D-CXXX applied. However, in 2019 the entire project was suddenly abandoned and this lovely DC-3 was offered for sale or scrap.

Air Atlantique acquired this DC-6 in 1987 and it served them well until 2005, when it was stored at Coventry. In 2011 it was converted into a restaurant at Air Atlantique's Airbase Museum, which formally opened as the "DC-6 Diner" on 22 April 2011. The diner closed on 23 Dec 2015, following Air Atlantique's owner Mike Collett's retirement. On 1 March 2016 the diner re-opened as the "DC-6 Diner & Cafe", now owned by the Eden Hotel Collection Group. It closed down again on 28 Sep 2017, this time probably for good. However, G-SIXC still remained at Coventry by Apr 2018.

This is the former WJ874, which made its last operational flight on 1 Sep 2005 and was then flown from Marham to Coventry on 9 Nov 2005 on delivery. Air Atlantique Classic Flight painted it in these markings as VN799, the Canberra prototype. Back in 1999 it had also been painted in those same markings, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Canberra's first flight on 13 May 1949. In 1989 WT478 and WJ877 also flew in these markings for the 40th anniversary. The circled "P" is not a code but indicated a Prototype aircraft. In July 2015 the aircaft moved on to the Cornwall Aviation Heritage Centre.
