Nice photos Rodney. Yes, a real 'plane indeed. We have moved backwards in this respect. The Saab 340 they are using now is rubbish. Little did you know at that time you would one day be flying a forklift truck for Orkney Builders.

Yes the Viscount was the best plane ever to operate on the Kirkwall route.Roomy and very quiet.
