Britain's fastest growing airline, Capital Airlines, owed its phenomenal success to the engineering skills of the men of Queen's Island, reported the News Letter in December 1988. Short's sturdy, widebodied aircraft had helped the Leeds based airline soar in passenger ratings. In three years the company, part of the Brown International organisation with interests in engineering and quarrying, had seen its traffic expand from 22,000 to a remarkable 300,000. The mainstay of the Capital's operations was the Shorts 36 seat 360 regional airliner. Pictured above is fitter Winston McMurran from Greyabbey works at the propeller of a Shorts 360 at the company's Queen's Island. Below left, electrician Ronald Duggan does some fine tuning in the radio bay of a Shorts 360 aircraft. And below right, Stephen Walker works on the aircraft's nose.
