DC6 from 1988
DC6 freighter G-APSA was originally operated as a passenger aircraft by Southend-based British Eagle. Instone Air Line purchased it from Yemen Air, where it had been in open storage for several years.
It was ferried from Sanaa to Southend where a major overhaul was carried out.
These were mostly supplementing aircraft on contract to mail and courier companies, as well as carrying general cargo, including oil spares and car parts.
