This is an old flight but I thought I would share it as it is possibly the most interesting flight I have had!

CityWing (then called Manx2) operated a flight from Angelsey Airport in North Wales, to the Isle of Man, then a connecting flight to Belfast City.

I didn't even know there was an airport in Angelsey!

I took the train from London Euston to Holyhead. The connection times were great.
Here's a view over the station. Most people will take the ferry to Dublin, which I have done before. (different trip report, different website!)

I took a local bus to the airport.
There is an RAF base here which is adjacent to the civil airport.

The waiting area. I checked in (photo ID essential!) and waited.

Before long our 'plane landed. This little craft operates from Cardiff to Angelsey to Isle of Man and back, as far as I know.
I think it's a Dornier?

First Class. (Well, that's what I call a 1-1 configuration!)

The pilots handled the safety demonstration and then turned around to take their seats.
They managed to fill the little plane!

As it's a small craft and didn't fly high, the views were lovely.

Before long, we landed at Ballasalla (Isle of Man)where FlyBE was waiting.
