Short SD330-100 ‘G-OGIL’

  • Description

    c/n SH.3068. Built 1981. On display at the North East Land, Sea & Air Museums (NELSAM), Sunderland, Tyne & Wear, UK. 11th September 2017 The following history for G-OGIL is from the very informative NELSAM website:- “G-OGIL c/n SH3068, first flew on 8th April 1981 and was registered as G-BITV two days later. It was delivered to Inter-City Airlines on 25th May 1981 and served with them for two years before being leased to British Air Ferries. Following service with Air Ecosse and Connectair, G-BITV joined Newcastle-based operator Gill Air in 1989 where it was registered G-OGIL. It continued to serve with Gill until 1992, when a taxying accident saw the aircraft written off, or stored pending disposal. An employee with links to the North East Aircraft Museum suggested that this was an ideal aircraft to be preserved. The management at Gill Air agreed and G-OGIL was donated to the museum, arriving in April 1993 minus its engines and any serviceable parts that could still be used on the remaining fleet.”
