Default Air Anglia F27

Air Anglia was a wholly privately owned, independent British regional airline formed at Norwich Airport in 1970. Created as a result of a merger of three smaller operators, the new entity became an important regional scheduled carrier during the 1970s, serving the Eastern half of Britain. In 1980 Air Anglia merged with three regional rivals to form Air UK.
This particular aircraft, G-BAUR, entered service with Air Anglia in September 1984 and later transferred to Jersey European in May 1995.

Stirling work again Mike, can't wait to have it in my hands. I always thought this was a great colour scheme for an airline. Just need an F28 to keep her company Their slogan strapline was 'Bigger than you think'.

That’s a lovely piece of work you’ve done there. Back in the 1980s, I worked for Air UK in Traffic/Ops work. Frequently visiting the various ‘outstations’ meant that I flew on ‘UR and the other F27s many many times. Happy days!

Neil.

A slightly different Air Anglia F27. G-BLGW joined the fleet in March 1978 before changing to Air UK colours in January 1980.
Donor model was a Herpa LTU and decals created by yours truly.

Would also like to see an Argosy as well. ARD did a 1/200 DC-3. Those F-27's look wonderful. Wish AC would release them.
