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. You can visit any of the individual type pages by clicking on 'More Information' There you will see details of every aircraft including resistration number, serial number and the dates with which the aircraft served with Dan-Air. We have given every aircraft an image too (There are one or two that do not have a photo ID. This is because we believe none were taken because in most cases, the aircraft hadn't joined the fleet. Once you visit a page there is an in page link to all other types, or you can clilck your back button to return here.

Following a flying accident, aged 16 in 1961, I was taken on by Dan-Air at Gatwick, working for the Chief Engineer. Unfortunately, my fractured spine had not healed sufficently and the next day I couldn't get out of bed! That was the end of my Dan-Air career! However, I remember that we loaded horses belonging the showjumper David Broome into a York freighter and wondered if there were any archive photographs of such operations.
