At its peak in the 1960s the vehicle ferry operation at Southend made it one of the busiest fields in the UK. The Carvair was the only Douglas propliner I flew on.

When they stripped all the layers of paint from 'DC for its freight-only career 'au naturel', it was said that they gained about 10% extra payload. Behind is G-AOFW which for a while was a candidate for preservation
