St Athan based GJD Aerospace has announced that it is preparing to move two Douglas DC6 aircraft from Coventry to St Athan.

One of the aircraft, former British Eagle Airlines G-APSA will be displayed at South Wales Aviation Museum once it has arrived in the Vale of Glamorgan.

The other aircraft, former Air Atlantique G-SIXC, was being used as the DC6 Diner until it closed in 2017.

In a post on their Facebook page, GJD Aerospace said: “After 10 months or so of preparing B737’s for shipment to China we finally get a gap in the program to do something nostalgic. GJD are now preparing to move the two DC6’s from Coventry to St Athan, The former British Eagle aircraft G-APSA will be going on display at SWAM.”
