84 Squadron Beverley over Aden 1964
An Argosy of 215 Squadron - was sometimes known as "The Whistling Tit" because of the Rolls Royce Dart engines in combination with the bulbous radome on the nose.  A scheduled KRSM (Khormaksar, Riyan, Salalah, Masirah) run around the Gulf kept the up country chaps in fresh food and mail.
