Air Jordan de Havilland DH-89a Rapide ZipDive!  Download

File Description:
Aircraft history - c/n 6687 was built at Loughborough as a DH89B Dominie and had the RAF serial number NR811. Postwar, she was converted to a DH89A and became Channel Island Airways’ G-AGSK 27th Oct 1945, then went to Jordan in October 1953 as Air Jordan’s TJ-ABP. Some time between 1953 and 1956 the Jordanian registration letters changed from TJ- (TransJordan?) the JY-, and she became JY-ABP (TJ- is now Caneroons). I don’t know how long she survived after 56, but there’s a reference on the web to a photo of her wreckage. Airline history: Air Jordan was founded in 1950 by H E Ismail Bilbesi and was partly owned by Trans Ocean Airways. They initially flew Airspeed Consuls on domestic routes out of Amman, but later acquired some C-47s from Trans Ocean to fly the Amman – Kuwait – Kandahar – Kabul route (could be a DC-3 Airways charter there!). In 1960, they acquired a DC-6, and they went bust in ’61. There routes were taken over by Jordan Airways (aka Jordanian).
