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!!!!!!!
thats the one.. went in one on a trip to Heathrow once when my Dad was on biz looking after the Aviation Fuel contracts for Shell there back in the 60,s.....the A T L 98 Carvair sorta superceeded car transports by air later in the decade..it was a converted Douglas DC 4 OR 6 ?!!..

At first I thought that was the one pictured outside Lord John, but plate says different. White must have been a favourite on the test fleet.

I love Rostyles. Such a shame they didn’t continue them for 12” instead of the ghastly Denovos.
