Air Ferry The Story of Silver City and Channel Air Bridge.

£9.99

Product description

Tourism International, London
Whybrow, Douglas
There are two big names in the air ferry story: Air Commodore Griffith Powell, CBE, whose brainchild it was and who launched the venture with Silver City Airways in 1948; and Freddie Laker - later to be Sir Freddie - who followed with the Channel Air Bridge six years later. In over twenty years from 1948 to 1970 more than a million cars and motor cycles, tens of thousands of cycles, six million passengers, and more than half a million tons of freight flew with the air ferries. The author was general manager of Channel Air Bridge from 1955 until it merged with Silver City in 1962. He then became general manager of both companies.
Condition: Very Good. Text pages clean and unmarked. Some slight discolouration of the cover.
