    Hi there
    I was in the Don last week and saw shipping crates for the Marchettis. Another era over. MW says one is being kept for the Museum.
    regards

        I read in the "Flying In Ireland" magazine that the Marchettis are US-bound aswell

          boxed and allmost gone. there was a circular to the effect that no AC help was to be provided to the company, even on their own time. the same wasn't said about the dauphins or gazelle?

            Any Dauphins being kept at all? Are they to be canabalised or refitted by the purchaser?

              All going....not viable comercially to be kept on. Might be one retained for a museum...but other than that....No More Dauphins in this neck of the woods.

                      Hmmm nice idea....would make a certain amount of sense....so probaly wont happen.Perhaps the other 3 were traded to cover the cost of upgrading 1 a/c,many other forces do this.

                          All the dauphins have been grounded since about the end of last year, the very last just about making it into the beginning of this year. the airframes aren't worth much, but apparently one is already sold, it's the spares that were the big selling point.

                            I doubt if any Dauphin's will be retained for VIP work OR for museum display!

                              i guarantee none will be retained for VIP work or the museum as the four remaining airframes were all put in forty foot containers and driven out the gate.
