Q2 where in thanet
answers to the last lot
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.
