These shots of the iconic trilander which until very recently flew on several Channel Island routes are now historic. Regulation and safety requirements and commercial demands have brought a close to a long, quirky history of inter island travel. In the old days they used to weigh you before giving you a seat number, then they just eyed you up and down while standing on the tarmac with the other passengers. You could always tell the tourist who was experiencing this for the first time- the sweat beads dripping off his nose.
This week's challenge set by Nancy gives me a chance to say 'farewell' 'au revoir' 'auf wiedersehen' to the Aurigny trilander.
