That old bone rattler..., Bristol Freighters........ Yes! We had them as general freighters and troop transports in the Far East in the 60's. We used to call them Bristol Frighteners. I seem to recall that it was the NZ Air Force that had the bulk of them. The RAF had a similar frightener, RAF Belvederes, a sort of prehistoric Chinook. When they took the crunchies on operations they had to take their own fuel with them for the return flight. Not a lot of fun seeing 6x 44 gallon drums of petrol strapped in alongside you!!!!!!!

I used to watch Bristol Freighters take off several times a day in Wellington NZ in the early '70s. Noisy buggers. Recently one in quite good nick was dismantled and shipped from NZ to the UK for restoration to flying condition..
