Hi guys, I have been amazed by the photos of the PL11. I knew Snow Bennett personally when he worked with me at Transavia on the PL12. Snow and Luigi Pellarini I met in 1964 when I started my apprenticeship with Transavia as an Aircraft Maintenance Engineer. The factory was just starting up at the time so I was there from the beginning helping to make the jigs and tooling. I learnt a lot from Snow and Luigi. I still have some pictures around of the PL12 on the day the first one (VH-TRN) rolled off the line including one of the first test flight.
Hi Wombat, would really like to hear more about those early days of Transavia and see the pictures of VH-TRN rolling off the production line at Seven Hill's. Have tried to find someone who was involved during that period for a very long time so I'll send you a private message. Thanks for sharing the great photo.
