File Description:
Textures only for Caledonian Airways 1961 DC-7C "Star of Robbie Burns" and Caledonian Airways 1962 DC-7C "Flagship Bonnie Scotland". You must have the DC-7C base back installed to fly this aircraft. That can be downloaded at www.calclassic.com. Caledonian Airways leased one SABENA DC-7C in the fall of 1961 and began flights in November, 1961 with G-ARUD "Star of Robbie Burns". That aircraft crashed in April of 1962 during takeoff at Douala, Cameroon. The cause turned out to be malfunctioning elevator spring tabs. Douglas had warned the airlines to fix these spring tabs, but for some reason or another SABENA did not do the work, and Caledonian didn't know about the airworthiness directive. A few weeks after the crash, Caledonian leased another SABENA DC-7C, G-AYRE "Flagship Bonnie Scotland" to resume flights. Caledonian flew out of Prestwick, Scotland, but London Gatwick was their main hub as far as traffic was concerned. These early 1961 and 1962 flights served secondary European cities with safari flights to Africa, pre-packaged flights to holiday destinations like Barbados and Jamaica, and low cost flights to and from North America.
