THE EVOLUTION OF AN AIRLINE
Dan Air was founded in 1953 with a lone DC3 Dakota aircraft. At the end of 1992, when the airline was taken over by British Airways almost 200 aircraft had flown with the company. We have listed the types flown and how many of each model were obtained. You will notice each of the liveries that the company introduced over the years. Where possible credit is given to the photographer. The types are listed in chronological order. We also have a separate page for each aircraft type. This gives full details of each and every aircraft. Information such as service entry dates, where the aircraft was obtailed and where the aircraft went after Dan - Air. To access those please use the navigation bar. The pictures can be enlarged by simply clicking on them - our thanks to the photographers. Clicking on each small picture will enlarge it. At the foot of the page is a series of links to take you to the individual aircraft type's page.
