Hi Biggles
I came across a BKS picture amongst my fathers papers and thought you might like to have a copy as it shows the group of Travel Agents from the Leeds-Bradford area who were passengers on the first flight out of Yeadon/Leeds/Bradford to Dusseldorf on the 20th September 1959. (according to the details on the back of the picture).
My father, Harold Townson who was on the flight on the 20th September 1959 (the first male at the top of the steps) was one of the principals of Summerway Tours of Manchester Road, Bradford who for many years was a booking agent for BKS and provided holiday packages for the people of Bradford and its vicinity using the BKS service.
Trusting you will find this interesting.
Yours sincerely
Keith Townson
