|After the war, the fleet of the BFS became the basis for a short-live flying club, with additional Luscombes being added.
This is one of the only two survivors, that of W.Cdr. Mo Ware, wartime commander of local RAF forces, and long-time head of the post war Civil Aviation department.
This photo is ca. 1985, at the slip beside the causeway at the entrance to the Civil Air Terminal. This aircraft was damaged on landing a year later, then severly damaged by Hurricane Emily in 1987. It's owner is still committed to its repair.
