Cherokee 6 Takes Part in Glasgow Airport Celebrations

Date posted: 
05 May

One of our older skydiving aircraft is the much loved Cherokee 6. Many people did their first parachute static line jumps from this aircraft back in the 1990's and 2000's. It literally flew thousands of jumpers to altitude. Nowadays, this airplane has had a graceful retirement and only does pleasure flights and not hard skydiving work.

The exciting connection with Glasgow Airport is that G-ATJV was the first official flight to take off from the runway in 1966. Since then, the airport has gone to grow to a major international hub for Scotland.
