Below are a series of photographs that record Pope John Paul II travelling with British Caledonian Helicopters, and also some more photos of the Papal return flight's 707 crew being presented to the Pope on their arrival in Rome
My thanks to Allen McLaughlin, Coreen O'Flaherty, Harry Miller and Tony Creasey for all their help with this page.

The Flight Purser ("super chief" as we used to call them) shown on the last photo, and if I'm not mistaken, flew the Pope back to Rome or into London, is Teddy Strawa, our Polish Flight Purser. As I also come from a Polish family I used to know Teddy pretty well, and I remember him telling me about the flight. Ana Eva Heuberger (Rio based stewardess)
