Thankyou ivor and nut. IIRC, the groundcrew headset socket on the 360 and ATP was also a NATO. They're very robust units - both plug and socket- but expensive. The price of the adaptors is astounding.

I concur with the majority- there's no sound like the shriek of a Dart. At LBA in the 70s and early 80s, we didn't hear much else!

The sound of a Spey painfully groaning its way through the start...

No problem dixi. I don't have access to any of these aircraft anyway, Islanders or whatever, so your word is good.

The American Trans Air 727 had spent the summer of 1987 operating for Air Malta. That's all I can contribute to this thread!

Thankyou dixi. It's as I expected - older British-built airliners and the Islander too. I expect many of these aircraft had Airlite 62 headsets or perhaps the old Amplivox Jetlite. There was very...

Thankyou again wrench. I think it's likely this particular plug and socket arrangement would have been fitted to early British airliners such as the Viscount and Britannia. Ideally I would need to...

Thankyou wrench1. The most recent I've bought is a British classic, the Astrolite. It has 2 x 300 ohm earphones series wired and an amplified (to carbon level) 300 ohm electromagnetic microphone. It...

NATO headset plug p/n AM671

I have picked up a number of used pilot headsets and most of them have been fitted with this brass plug. Assuming the headsets had been used in civil aircraft, does anyone know what aircraft types...

WLAD has been discussed on here a few times and I'm still not clear why she was leased-in in the first place and for a relatively long period of time ( about eighteen months before being passed on to...

I suppose that when Manx did the franchise thing with BA at the same time that a few of its aircraft were operating flights for a close rival - British Midland - it was only a matter of time before a...

Thankyou Skipness and Flightrider. I suspected that the looming BA branding with Manx Airlines (Europe) might have prompted a change of airline and basing the aircraft at LBA, within what you...

The flight numbers stayed the same from the original Loganair operation, through Manx and BMA then back to Loganair in recent years. 44 minutes is quite a respectable flight time but the Embraer 135...

PS. Loganair did come back on GLA - LBA more recently ( after British Midland had cleared off for good) but it didn't last very long.

British Midland Airways, Leeds Bradford to Glasgow flights

LBA - GLA is a route that's had its share of operators over the years. BMA flew it for a spell in the early 1970s, Dan-Air took it on in 1972 and held it until 1984 when it was passed on to their...

Thanks Gordo. One wonders why Speedbird wasn't adopted for the whole combined fleet upon the merger.

Gordomac, can you remember the RT callsign(s) you used during your time on the LBA Viscounts ? It's a subject that's been discussed a few times on here. Possibles include:

I have family in Canada. In the late 1970s/early 1980s, whenever they went back home to Montreal/Toronto, their flight from Manchester was always on a Brutish Airways VC10. Never a 707 or TriStar....

There's not many airlines I know of whose pilots still wear uniform caps. Ironically, TUI is one of them, and Eastern. I think British Airways still have them. They are bit old hat these days.

Thankyou bean, one does try.

I'm fairly sure no 757 has attempted an auto land or Cat3 approach since that time, Discorde. I think the 'float' might at least partly explain why Jet2 has removed...

Forgive me for going off-thread but I have heard similar tales of the reliability problems of one of Britannia's Advanced 737s, G-BAZI. I don't know the particular issues with ZI but she was...

Jet2 had a stab at Turin from LBA a year or two ago. It's not available now so I guess it didn't work. I reckon it must have taken the best part of four hours in a Viscount - ok if the prop sync is...

Thankyou, bean and H49. To think that the 1-11 500 was the aircraft that Sir George Edwards was trying very hard to persuade Britannia to buy; they were having none of it and the rest is history. A...

Ah, H49, I was hoping you would have something to contribute to this thread! The Britannia 737 ops must have been on the marginal, but obviously legal, side before the runway was extended. But,...
