During the late sixties/very early seventies G-ADDI, DH84 Dragon, used to position daily to the beach at Southport from what we might easily term an early example of a farm-strip located at Criccieth. Each day Captain ‘Chris (female), something or other’, in full airline uniform, would scare the proverbial sh*t out of the donkey population while sealing something up in the heart of her willing and knowledgeable passengers. Refuelling was always at Squires Gate and transit always by way of Llanbedr ATC - then extremely active with the antipodean drone - a Jet Provost with stub wings? Oh happy days.
