A LEGEND

I've booked the holiday to Jersey dear. Oh good,are we taking the ferry? Err no we're flying. Oh, from Manchester. Err no....from Staverton. Where on earth is Staverton? It's in Gloucestershire. Why ? Err...I thought it would be a pleasant drive down the M5. Really ! This was how I broke the news to my wife that we would be flying to Jersey with Intra Airways on the last scheduled passenger service in the UK still using the Dakota and here is our aircraft G-AMPY taxying in to the terminal at Staverton on August 12th,1977. During the flight I had to use the loo and the look on the lone stewardess's face was picture when I asked her where it was. She directed me to a small door at the rear of the plane and it is the only time I have ever had to bend double to use a loo and yes it was an Elsan !
