Redmond Air Inc
N7450
October 1980

Purchased from Trans Florida Airlines. Taken at Paine Field, Snohomish County Airport, Everett, Seattle, Washington State, USA in October 1980.

It is still in the basic Trans Florida Airlines livery. Note that the access panel under the tail has been removed.

The brightly coloured aircraft behind is de Havilland Comet 4C N888WA (C/N 6424) which also belonged to Redmond Air Inc at that time and had been stored here since 1979, after the FAA grounded it due to maintenance record issues.

Luckily, after decades of neglect and corrosion the aircraft was acquired by the Seattle Museum of Flight in 1994 and the long period of restoration began.

It has now been repainted in a BOAC livery.
