Good Luck to RAF Transport Command Memorial

We're delighted to see the new website for RAF Transport Command Memorial.  David Patters and Guillaum D'hoore intend to acquire and operate a Dakota for passenger flying as a living tribute to those who flew - and sometimes died - in the dangerous skies into which these fabulous aircraft were born.  It's looking increasingly likely that we'll be able to re-open pleasure flights in our own Daks later this year, so it's tremendous news to know that there'll be another opportunity to sample a unique flying machine here in the UK.

Guys, we wish you the very best of luck and applaud your aims.  Always remember that we're here to help if you ever need us.

I flew in a Dakota on one of the last passenger flights from Coventry Airport in 2008 and it would be great to see one of these iconic aircraft carrying passengers again. I would certainly like to fly in one again.

Here's hoping, Kath! The CAA have been very supportive of our case for an exemption from the crippling and irrelevant EASA regulation changes that require us to fit oxygen, exit chutes and a bullet-proof flight deck door! We're hopeful of having the Daks back on line for passenger flying as soon as this year

I was a passenger on that last DC3 flight at Coventry and stood forlorn with a glass of fizz "celebrating" the end,I would love another glass and sstand at Newquay to celebrate a new beginning !!!

It's always sad to see an old friend leave, Sean, but let's not forget that G-AMRA's departure keeps her flying as well as helping us to get the Twin Pin back in the air - along with our other two Daks! We're even hoping to bring G-ANAF back to passenger status in the Autumn.

Great news that I may be able to fly in a "Dak" again, my favourite plane.I have great memories of good friday 2008 bouncing around the skies of Coventry dodging snow squalls!
