Operator: Falcon Airways

Falcon Airways – Captain Marian Kozubski founded the company in December 1958 which started with a single Vickers Viking in March 1959. Two Hermes were added later in the year. 1960 was a successful year for Falcon despite a high profile overshoot at Southend which left a Hermes on the railway track but no injuries. This fleet had all been sold by the autumn of 1960. In early 1961 three Constellation where purchased. All three were ex BOAC and had been traded to Capital for L.749 models in the emergency post-Comet1 re-equipment. Kozubski ferried them across the Atlantic personally, but only G-AHEL and G-AMUP entered service. Falcon incurred fines for operating G-AHEL transatlantic without inadequate navigation aids and dinghies. The defense was that a more direct eastbound route had been taken due to diagnosis of pneumonia in baby passenger on an immigrant flight at Gander.
