Air Atlantique's Classic Flight is to put one of its pair of Douglas DC-6s on the UK and Europe air show circuit in 2008, according to the flight’s owner Mike Collett.
He has two of the type – G-APSA and G-SIXC - and until a few years ago Coventry airport-based Air Atlantique was operating them in the ad-hoc air cargo role which they performed well, having a 13.5t payload.
G-APSA, the only UK-registered DC-6 currently operational, is being prepared for the UK and European air show circuit next year.
