BCal DC-10 Keys
When BCal took delivery of their new DC10's a set of keys is handed over at the delivery ceremony. These traditionally were keys to the cockpit door when cockpit doors had key locks.
I am pleased to say that the late Maurice Hale had the ceremonial fobs from seven of the eight aircraft delivered. His son Steve has kindly sent in photos and they are below.
The "keys" for BCal's 5th DC10 - G-BHDH
As always, any thoughts for the missing names welcome
As always, any thoughts always welcome
And here we have a photo montage of all the keys that Maurice had in his collection.......with one notable absence......keys for G-BEBM
The list is in delivery order (BM arrived before BL).............but does anyone have a fob for Bravo Mike please?
It would be great to add in an image of that missing fib to complete the photo.
But what of G-MULL and G-NIUK....or the BCal Charter DC10-10s (G-BJZD, G-BJZE and G-GCAL)?
All these aircraft were bought or leased later in their lives, thus they were not new. So any delivery key would be with their original operators
