Air Atlantique

Based at Coventry in the UK, its Atlantic Airlines freight services are operated by the world's largest Electra fleet, plus two DC6s and a Convair 440 that are unique in Europe. It has seven operational DC3s, used for spraying oil dispersant at sea, and freight & passenger duties. If that's not enough, it also runs an Historic Flight with aircraft like the Twin Pioneer, Dove, Dragon Rapide and the world's only currently airworthy Avro Anson.

Super Connie Rescue

With the end of Dominican propliner operations in 1993, Super Constellation HI-583CT sat at Santo Domingo, cared for by Aerochago mechanics, hoping for a miracle.One finally arrived in 2001, when a Swiss-based team, led by a former Super Connie pilot, mounted a rescue bid. From the first ground runs, to the eventual restoration work, everything was captured on video.After months of repairs and negotiations in Dominica, the aircraft was ferried to Opa Locka. During the flight, the No. 2 engine had to be shut down, but everything else ran fairly smoothly. Not so on the next part of the trip to Avra Valley, where the restoration was to take place. A few hours into the flight, No 2 gave further trouble and engine oil leaked back over the wing. It was decided to make an unscheduled stop at Conroe, Texas, but a major hydraulic leak caused more anxious moments, before a safe landing. Further repairs and, finally, arrival at Avra Valley, Arizona, where the MATS Connie's looked after and another L749 was being prepared for delivery to the Dutch Aviodome Museum at Schipol. Both these aircraft are featured on the video, including a training exercise in the MATS machine.
