Britannia "Canopus"216 viewsThis aircraft took a lot of us to Malta. It was the very one I flew on in 1970 to get to the island. In fact this picture was taken in 1970 so there is a possibility that we were on board at the time! We spent time on arrival at Hal Far while we were taxied around choosing a quarter. We ended up in Peter Street in F'Gura to start with before moving to St George's' Street Paola, where we then lived in two flats; three homes in just over a year! fifla1973
