The Brian Robbins Gallery Pt 1
The following photos were kindly sent in by Brian and I am pleased to be able to show them here
When the British Government finally gave permission for Hunting and Airwork to use modern turbo-prop Viscounts on their Colonial coach services, both airlines soon deployed Viscounts. Here we can see both airlines with their Viscounts down route in Africa on Safari services.
G-ASJI was on a demonstration flight in 1965 at time of The Gambia's Independence. Freddy (Laker) wanted to show it off so it made several flights with various dignitaries. The 1-11 started regular Safari services later that year.
Note the RAF Brit in the background of some of the photos. The Duke &Duchess of York who were the Queen's reps for Independence flew out on that.
