In the mid 1990s, most of the freight that passed through Coventry’s night-time freight hub was transported aboard vintage propliners, including Vickers Viscounts and at the time, the world’s last operational Vickers Vanguard.
Henry Tenby captured this magic on video during several visits in 1995 and 1996. This AirlineHobby.com DVD program features ear-piercing Viscount and Vanguard action.
We also go for a cockpit flight on the world’s last in-service Vickers Vanguard (Hunting Cargo’s G-APEP) from Liverpool to Belfast, as well as a day-time flight on British World Viscount G-BFZL from Belfast to Coventry, with footage from both the cabin and the flight-deck.

Twenty years before Ice Pilots became a realty show hit, aviation videographer Henry Tenby was video documenting the vibrant Yellowknife aviation scene in the mid 1990s while employed by local airline NWT Air.
Plenty of footage filmed on the main Yellowknife apron features Canadian North and NWT Air Boeing 737-200s and Bradley/First Air HS748s. You'll witness passengers boarding, cargo handling, engine starts, taxi and runway action with superior noise qualities. In Old Town Yellowknife there's extensive footage of Air Tindi Twin Otters, Turbine Otters and Beavers on wheels, skis and floats.
