SE-BSX Convair 440-75 Metropolitan (396) SAS " Sverker Viking". 22 January 1968. I flew to Gothenburg on "SK494". The image above shows my cabin crew arriving in a beat up Bedford van! - SE-BSX served from 1957-1973 and was broken up at Oslo-Fornebu in 1975
LN-MOD Douglas DC-7C (44930) SAS "Guttorm Viking" passes OY-KND Douglas DC-7C (45211) SAS "Rolf Viking". Fred Olsen Curtiss C-46 and Falk DH114 Heron in distance.
Here is the area to the west of the new terminal, mostly used at my time of visit as a freight area. This was the old control tower.
SE-EDR Curtiss C-46R Commando (30394) of Transair Sweden loads up while LN-FOR (30252) of Fred Olsen awaits a charter.
Sud Est SE.210 Caravelle III action as a SAS machine passes parked Finnair example OH-LEC (27).

N9895F Douglas C-47B-5-DK Skytrain (14660 / 26105) was the first aircraft photographed after I cycled round to the south area at Kastrup. 20 August 1964.
OY-AOT Lockheed 12A Electra Junior (1285) of Scan-Fly was the next delight in front of my lense. Previous history and demise. Y-O233, G-AGDT, HM573, G-AGDT, SE-BTO, LN-BDF, OY-AOT, crashed 13 February 1967 at Kastrup. I also noted OY-AOV (1306) when I was poking around. It has the following history: L2-38 Netherlands Flying School, Jackson, USA, PJ-AKD, BX238 RAF Dutch Metropolitan Communications Squadron, T-2 KLu post-WW2, SE-BXR, OH-ETA Lentohuolto Oy, LN-BFS Widerøes Flyveselskap & Polarfly, OY-AOV Scan-Fly. On display at Egeskov Museum 1970-1981 as "L2-38". Militaire Luchtvaart Museum, Soesterberg 1981 "L2-100" - so we almost met again on 29 June 2011 when I was a Soesterberg..
OY-BAV Douglas DC-6B Super Cloudmaster (45199) of Sterling was there with OY-EAO, OY-BAU and OY-BAT. OY-BAV was noted on the fire-dump in 1981, looking very sad.
OY-DOY Beech 65 Queen Air (LC-15). Her history: 1960 build - D-IGAS, SE-EDE, LN-IKB, OY-DOY, N7345 ended up in Puerto Rico, I believe.
OY-ACR Piper PA-23-250 Aztec B (27-2315). I'll bet these nice old wooden hangars are long gone. History: N5262Y, OY-ACR, D-IBOK, OY-ACR, Mekanikerskolen, Dragør. Haderslev
SE-BUU Lockheed 18-56 Lodestar (18-2076) Load Air AB., eventually scrapped at Kastrup in 1966. It was built in 1940, ex G-AGBT and VP-KFA.

OY-DAZ General Aircraft ST-25 Monospar (95) rather neglected and dusty in the back of a hangar. History - nice to know she has been saved: Built 1935 - G-AEYF, OY-DAZ Zonen "Caritas I", on display at Denmark's Flyvemuseum.
OY-AOZ Beech 23 Musketeer (M-446). Built 1963.
