It’s a high wing, twin-engined, all-metal monoplane with a mid-mounted tailplane and twin rudders. The first flight of the Skyvan, the Skyvan 1, was on 17 January 1963 and many are still used today, mainly in the role of skydive aircraft. It’s maybe not the prettiest aircraft ever and consequently became, affectionately, known as “the shed” by its pilots and crew!
We used this one for the original “Kingsman” movie. It got a coat of matt black washable paint and we operated it for a couple of days while those crazy skydive types did their thing.
It would also serve well as a little freighter / drug runner. Able to operate from grass if needed it’s a great load lifter. Call for more details.

RT @maz_jovanovich: Certainly not ideal, but if you have to crash, this is about as good as it gets. Kudos to the pilot on a textbook ditch…18th April 2021

Today we’re a 24 hr, 3 film, 5 aircraft type, 3 decade business! First up a 1990’s airliner followed by military freighter. Off to the 1970’s with a twin Cessna this evening and then the rest of the night back in WW2! #ukfilm #cessna #messerschmitt #boeing https://t.co/cmA5PXiaUs14th April 2021
