Re: Northolt Station Flight Islanders

There are a couple of civil twins,(Navajos I believe),operating from there,both during the day and late at night.....assume these are doing that job.....Think there was an article,either on FC or another Mil spotting site,which referred to some ex RAF/Mod pilots setting up a civilian outfit in this ...
