Isles of Scilly birthday

SKYBUS, the little airline that links the Isles of Scilly to the English mainland, will celebrate its 25th birthday later this year.  The airline was launched on Wednesday, 22 August 1984, with a single BN Islander.  It competed, and still does, with a helicopter service to Penzance, and also the (sometimes turbulent) sea crossing.  Skybus is seeking former members of staff, and early customers, for a commemorative brochure it is publishing.  From those early times the airline has expanded and, while still one of the UK’s smallest, now has a fleet of three Twin Otters and three Islanders serving six airports including a route from Newquay to St Brieuc (France).  If you were around 25 years ago please see www.skybus.co.uk
