Air Ferry were the first civil aviation operator at Manston they started in the 1960s, I think all the operators there went bust apart from the last one which was a huge company. 

Air Ferry hat two accidents which helped to finish them off, 

On 21 January 1967 a Douglas C-54 Skymaster registered G-ASOG operating a cargo flight from Manchester to Frankfurt in Germany struck trees while executing a night-time approach, resulting in the death of both crew members.

On 3 June 1967 a Douglas C-54A Skymaster registered G-APYK operating a non-scheduled passenger flight from Manston to Perpignan in France struck the Canigou mountain at 4,000 feet while in the descent, killing all 88 occupants (five crew and 83 passengers). Cause of the accident was determined to be carbon monoxide poisoning of the flight crew due to a faulty cabin heater.

on to photos Sandwich Bay Estate today, not strictly Thanet but mostly views of Ramsgate from off the IOT

Comments, since I started writing this blog in 2007 the way the internet works has changed a lot, comments and dialogue here were once viable in an open and anonymous sense. Now if you comment here I will only allow the comment if it seems to make sense and be related to what the post is about. I link the majority of my posts to the main local Facebook groups and to my Facebook account, “Michael Child” I guess the main Ramsgate Facebook group is We Love Ramsgate. For the most part the comments and dialogue related to the posts here goes on there. As for the rest of it, well this blog handles images better than Facebook, which is why I don’t post directly to my Facebook account, although if I take a lot of photos I am so lazy that I paste them directly from my camera card to my bookshop website and put a link on this blog.
