    Air Atlantique DC-6's

    Does anybody know what is happening to these beautiful aircraft?

    Are they still gainfully employed?

    Their biggest problem is finding Avgas in sufficient quantities at commercial airfields. Big bowsers now full of Jet-A1. Little pumps with short hoses for delivering 60 litres of 100ll a time to Cherokees.

        Neither of them has flown in over a year (both last flew in 2004), but their engines are run to keep them vaguely healthy. Alas, I do not think we'll see them flying again for Atlantic - the ATP-Fs now coming online are not too far short of being able to perform the missions the Six did.
