Dublin Movements, October 1976

This month was again enlivened by some movements which would have used Shannon but for a fuellers' dispute there.  Three different Hercules appeared in my log - two Saudi C-130s and Southern Air's L-100 N9232R.  The two Dan-Air 1-11s were operating one-off charters but would in due course become regulars when the airline began a scheduled service from Gatwick.  

SFERMA Marquis F-BLLR was a Beech Baron converted to Astazou turboprop power; fourteen of these conversions were produced and in fact this example (or at least its fuselage) survives as a museum exhibit at Montelimar.  British Midland 707 G-AYBJ operated a charter for Quebecair.  BMA's 707s spent most of their careers out on lease and wore many different liveries.  US Navy Convair 141009 on the 25th was visiting in connection with the presence in Dublin Port of the USS Mount Whitney.  A visit to the vessel found two Bell UH-1Ns on board: serials 159191 and 159193.
