Was this the ex Pan Am aircraft flown from Desert storage to Lasham undercariage down ?I used to work with a gentleman called Ken, who had worked for Dan Air at Lasham.I remember many stories which he told and with regard to AYSL. The aircraft was a regular visitor to Lasham, often at short notice for urgent repair.Apparently, any airborne gliders had flares fired in their vicinity to be warned of its impending arrival.Once on the ground, if light was poor AYSL ( and other aircraft requiring maintenence) would be illuminated by a semi circle of Morris minor pickups, which Dan Air operated,headlights on and engines running !How things have changed !
