TC-GOK Airspeed A.S.65 Consul
Rare shot of a
Turkish registered Consul from the Jerry Elmas collection.
Built as an Airspeed
A.S.40 Oxford for the RAF as LW899 (original c/n was 1130), it was
converted by Portsmouth
Aviation Ltd in
1947 to Consul standard and registered G-AJLM. It
was operated by John
Thomson Donaldson of Alloa (based in Perth);
and named "Eagleways".
In July 1952 it was
Gok-Tur Serketi, and entered into the Turkish register in August of
that year. I just love
the umlaut or whatever
they call it in Turkey above the 'O' in the rego!
