Recently at Newcastle Airport
Photographic News from Today !
Wednesday 26th August 2009

The Kustbevakningen - the Swedish Coast Guard - made a very welcome return to Newcastle Airport today, showing us their new equipment for the first time in the process, DHC.8-311MSA SE-MAC/503 (MSN 638), the third of the current Dash Eight fleet, all of which were only delivered during 2008, visiting from its home base at Stockholm-Skavsta after an oil pollution patrol over the North Sea. The organisation was once rather regular here with their CASA 212s during the '80s and '90s, but the last visit had involved SE-KVG during April 2004.
