I remember when I was working in Germany in the late 80s that the
airmails were delivered on a Viscount flown by British Air Ferries.
Years later I met one of the pilots who flew that 'plane, as it used
to wake me up in the morning when flying over my house.


did it fly a bit low that day then?

Our house was only a few hundred yards from the end of the runway, and
when landing in that direction it was less than 100 feet off the deck.
