EI-ABK  de Havilland D.H.86 Express                           (c/n  2338)


                                    Aer Lingus' second aircraft was this D.H.86, purchased in 1936.  It was formerly G-ADVJ, and
                                    with it the Irish airline began services to London (Croydon).   Later, in 1939, the airline acquired
                                    two Lockheed 14s and soon after that a DC-3.   In 1946 EI-ABK returned to the British register
                                    as G-ADVJ.  It was written off in 1952 at Bahrein.
