The Helena McGowan Gallery (now Burgoyne)
Ab Initio - 13th August 1973
The following photo was kindly sent in by Helena, she flew with BCal out of Gatwick from 1973-1983.
Below is the course photo of the group, and nearly a full list of names. But if you can help with surnames and the missing ones we can bring the photo up to date and it may help find folks too, please drop me a line anytime at the usual address.
Although officially conversion number 12 (from a C-54A), G-AOFW was the eleventh Carvair to be completed. She went straight to Aviaco in April 1964 on lease, with ferry marks EC-WVD and then became EC-AVD. After lease, she entered service with BUAF in March 1965 as G-AOFW and was not named. She is shown here departing Southend in January 1967 by which time she had lost the standard 'Carvair' script across the fin.
