    Great aeroplane that deserves better recognition than it got. Could carry a large load at high speed - it's high point was the Berlin Airlift, although maintenance isues with its Merlins didn't help it; it was faster than the C-54 and could carry a heavier load. The York C.1 in the pic above, MW101 of 24 Sqn was used as Monty's personal transport and was the second production York. It and the first production aircraft MW100 flew over half a million miles transporting VIPs and personnel.

    That is MW140 which was part of the RAAF's Governor Generals Flight. Was also used to evacuate POW's from Singapore post war.

    Interesting shot. The York is being inspected by USAAF personnel and, judging by the style of the hangar in the background, I think this might have been taken at Bassingbourn.
