Locally Argosies could only go into Riyan.
Not to decry the RAF, but Aden Airways DC3s could show them a thing or two.
I was a commercial civilian there 64-67 and travelled widely. I've got 35 ninutes of silent film now on dvd with several aerial shots from DC3s. Must learn how to put it on Youtube.
The shots of Thumeir brought a wry smile to me - I used to drive by the wire in an Arab Land Rover on the way up to Dhala.

Thanks for that Phil. Very nostalgic and hitherto unseen.

Don't know what you infer about the Aden Airways DC3s versus the Argosy, Wings? Other than their hosties were very tasty - one of my squadron mates married one.
