Aye, Orkney had proper travel facilities in those days. I'm considering coming "home" for a fortnight this year, but as a disabled person I dread the journey and the cost.

Note the engineer coming out from underneath with the GPU cable. It connected behind the props and he had to walk out under the aircraft after the engines had started.
