Macedonian Aviation Douglas DC-3 ZipDive!  Download

File Description:
Macedonian Aviation was formed as a charter operator in the summer of 1972 with a Dove and one DC-3 G-AMPO based at Luton and later, Southend Airports. By February 1973 the Dove had been sold and operations continued with the DC-3. Operations steadily grew and by December 1973 charter flights started to be flown in the oil rig support business from Aberdeen. With this work increasing Macedonian looked for further DC-3s to expand its operations, and in March 1974 it purchased British Island Airways' remaining three DC-3's. The first of these, G-AMHJ and G-AMRA were in service at Aberdeen Airport by May 1974 and G-AMPO was moved back to Southend to continue charter flights from there. The oil companies were beginning to insist on turbo-prop aircraft for the transportation of their personnel. Macedonian started negotiations to replace the DC-3's with Viscount or Heralds, but these negotians were unsuccessful so operations continued with the DC-3's. The third ex BIA DC-3 G-AMSV eventually arrived at Southend in September 1974 but this aircraft never entered service with Macedonian. In November 1974 all aircraft were flown back to Southend and Macedonian ceased all flying having been unable to raise any finance to support turbo-prop operations, and the DC-3's were sold. This repaint is of G-AMPO. Requires default Douglas DC-3.
