Britten-Norman Islander
Walkaround Gallery

A Britten-Norman Islander walkaround … I didn’t even realise they were still being made! I remember seeing an Airfix kit of the Islander many many years ago. Judging by the Britten-Norman website, they are actually thriving. Yet another example of a plane that looks right flies right. They got the recipe spot on right at the start, and that was back in the late 60s.

This one was on static display at, you guessed it, Avalon 2007. (I will be taking pics at other places, honest!).

It is quite remarkable how little the design has changed. I take it the engines have been updated, and you can get turbine engines and an executive interior (Made here in Australia) if you want.
