Thank you to Thomas Emms from the City of Norwich Aviation Museum who has informed us that that former Air Anglia Aircraft, G-BCDN which was at the Technical College (KLM UK Engineering) at Norwich airport has now been donated to the City of Norwich Aviation Museum.

Thomas tells us that they plan to return her to the Air Anglia colour scheme she once had and with a lot of work they are confident she will look amazing once again.

We are all invited to the museum one year for our reunion – possibly even annually…
