Fonthill Media has published ‘Gone but not Forgotten’ by Alan Phillips a book that covers seventy well-known large and small British airlines that have ceased operating since 1946. Famous names gone but not forgotten…
The British airliners we see today in our airports are the result of numerous takeovers and mergers involving large and small companies. Gone but not Forgotten: Defunct British Airlines since 1945 covers large numbers of these airlines that have ceased operating since 1946. Some collapsed due to financial difficulties and others were taken over by larger airlines or ceased operating altogether. In post-war Britain, several small airlines were founded and equipped with surplus military aircraft, the most popular being the Douglas Dakota. This fascinating book features a guide in alphabetical order to each airline accompanied by a brief historical account and interesting images of the aircraft in their distinctive colour schemes. Airlines covered are a selection of large and small aircraft, which flew international and regional routes as well as airlines involved in inclusive tours business.
The book contains:
-Previously unpublished photographs of defunct British airlines in alphabetical order that disappeared from our skies since 1946
-Covers a fascinating period of British civil aviation, sadly now long gone
-Of great interest to aviation enthusiasts, historians and modellers
