Could you possibly elaborate more on the BAWC hub at London Stansted Airport during the 1990's prior to the formation of GSS Global Supply Systems in 2001.

If possible could you include the destinations and possible schedules during this period.

Many photos online depicting the African International DC8-54F's as well as the Gemini Air Cargo DC10-30F's at London Stansted Airport during this time frame but I wasn't aware that they were flown on behalf of BAWC.

I was out of the country for the majority of the 1980/90's so I'm personally not totally aware of the BAWC operations at London Stansted Airport during this period.
